    One last thing ... can I (plaintiff) call the defendant to the stand for questioning or can I only hope/wait for him to take the stand voluntarily (after which I can cross-examine)?

    The other side will have a lawyer.

    This is not a criminal proceeding. He can call the defendant as a hostile witness. What the defendant answers is a different story.


    Parents should remember 3 things: Love your kids more than you hate your ex; when you have children the relationship with the other parent is until death; your children determine what type of nursing home you end up in.
    Nothing stated by me should be taken as giving you legal advice or forming an attorney/client relationship.

    I've removed the knife from my back, polished it, and will one day return it -- long after you think I have forgotten.
