Phone conference turned pretrial
DH got BCC'd in an email from his lawyer today sent to BM's lawyer. DH's lawyer and BM's lawyer had a phone conference with a judge planned for Monday and DH & BM weren't supposed to be on the call.
I guess BM's lawyer has never done this before and sent DH's lawyer a bunch of weird law requests then said she thinks the judge will be mad if the clients aren't at the "pretrial". DH's lawyer tells her it's not a pretrial but that if they bring the clients on the call they might as well make it one. DH's lawyer and DH are eager to move this to actual trial and getting a pretrial is months away so it's actually a good thing. However DH has nothing prepared in way of a statement or brief so it's probably not the best timing. Plus DH was supposed to take SS10 to his next counselor appointment at the same time as the phone conference. Luckily he was able to reschedule it for an earlier appointment and should be just ending the session when the conference begins. I'll have to pick up SS10 to take him to school so it's a bit of a gong show but doable.
DH isn't really great on the phone so this should be interesting lol.
