My matter is just not moving as quickly as I want. The court gave us a date two months out and I had to wait a week to speak with my attorney. My soon-to-be-ex is representing herself and I feel like I can’t accomplish anything. What do I do? Can I speed up the process?
Unfortunately, the judicial system is still in a hybrid of virtual and in-person court dates. Therefore, scheduling becomes increasingly complicated and often, the courts have no choice but to push out your court date further than you would like. As far as waiting a week to speak with your attorney, while that does sound frustrating, it may be the only availability that your attorney has. Just like the courts, when attorneys are juggling both in-person and virtual court dates, as well as juggling new responsibilities in negotiations and litigation since the courts are so delayed, it does often create a scheduling delay. If you need to speak with your attorney more urgently, try sending an email, leaving a detailed information with staff, or seeing if a paralegal has time to speak with you.
