Last Friday 01/31/14, we received notice that there will be a hearing on Thursday 02/06/14, brought my our son/step-son's father in Florida. This will be to consider a Motion for Temporary Custody, a Motion to Prevent Removal of Child, and Denial of Passport Services. However, we are out of state and cannot afford to get back to Florida. We also cannot afford a lawyer.
Therefore, what can we do? How do we inform the Judge that we cannot be there? How do we file a response?
Thank you in anticipation.

Call the Judge's assistant. You may also wish to appear by phone.
You have to contact the court to appear by phone and you are suposed to file a motion first. Contact my office for free consultation 727-446-7659-
