Legal Question in Family Law in Illinois

We are trying to get court date for a custody matter. Court was postponed once because other attorney called in sick after 5 months of preparation. She now will not return the phone calls from my attorney. he says that is part of her game but it has been 3 months. When can we get to court ever. They say we need an attorney but attorney will not schedule court date until the other attorney calls him back. Advice??

If your atty will not seek a court date, you must change attys. The Clerk will not give you a court date. rankly if the atty is ill, the court will not set a trial date unless it is an emergency.
