Family court pro se filing and section 4
(Palm Beadh )
Working Pro se in 15th District of Palm Beach, divisional instructions and state statutes provision the pro se litigant with certain equal rights and treatment as attorneys. Setting of hearings, however, has been forbidden, I have found, thereby putting my motions at the time or inclination of the judge - and not first come, first served, per divisional instruction. Moreover, opposing counsel has misrepresented to the court compliance to section 4, settlers by hearings without prior notice nor any consult.
Even more disconcerting, urgent ex parte filings go unanswered by the court and this has been for more than a month's time.
During a hearing the judge refused to listen to issues around section 4, saying to "file a motion." Yet a motion sent prior to this hearing in fact called attention to the violation of section 4 and to the unequal footing of the pro se, in not being permitted to set UMCs.
Given the above, have I grounds to stop and move this case to another judge or even district, and/or other avenues to ensure my rights, assets, etc. are protected and restoreable as we wait months for setting of a final hearing?
This is a short term marriage with Prenuptial agreement and it is by my claims being made unnecessarily vexed by the Wife and her counsel, while this is propounded by the court itself.
