Need help interpreting the paperwork from the court
Well, the lawyer screwed up, and the Marshall already has the papers, and will be serving the BM any time now!!!
I just downloaded the papers, and it has a "return date" of 2/24. Is this our court date?
I see later it says:
"To respond to this summons, or to be informed of further proceedings, you or your attorney must file a form called an "Appearance" with the Clerk of the above named Court at the above court address on or before the second day after the above return date"
To me this reads BM has to fill out a form by 2/26, that means nothing about the court date itself.
Can anyone help me with this????
Many thanks in advance, FH and I are so stressed right now, this was NOT how this was supposed to go down!
