I just got another notice that I can request an oral argument before the court of appeal. I am sending in the form today for oral argument, just as I did before.
I have an oral argument scheduled for next month. I would have preferred that the arguments were consolidated, or that I could wait until I see whether next month's oral argument is a waste of time. My guess is that the appellate court doesn't see non-lawyers like myself arguing family court cases very often, and it is not looking forward to having to listen to me twice in one year.
