Illinois- Pro Se- Continuance- Narcotic Use
- The court lost jurisdiction when the judge
made you appear under medication.
Get to a reference law library at a college
or county law library.
Any reasonable request for a continuance
made 24 hours ahead of time to all parties
must be allowed.
Check your court rules for continuances.
Are there any local divorced Dads organizations
to contact for help with this problem?

full of people out here who don't understand the law, but that seldom is
helpful to them. Maybe I overlooked some of Illinois' good points when
I decided to leave for good. Imagine if some day comes when NOBODY in
Illinois understands the law!! Wow! It'll be like California - GAME
OVER! It may not be long before most states realize it's over for them
as well. The people putting the NAU together are pretty confident
that's the way of the future too. When they take away the FRNs, will
you work and give property for Ameros? Not me!

and attorneys? Is it BEFORE or AFTER they act against our best
interests? I believe it is BEFORE they can act officially, so as a
matter of course, I try to disqualify all warm-bodied human beings who
speak in any case in which I become involuntarily embroiled. I don't
know how to do that in Illinois, but I'm sure there has to be a process.
Maybe a keyword search using "disqualification", "peremptory challenge",
"challenge for cause", "conflict of interest", "practicing law without a
license", "ethics violation", etc. might turn up useful info for you.

enough to stop abuses against today's victims of government by today's
criminal in-fill-traitors, because they will say you always had remedies
that you either waived or can take advantage of in the future if you
don't like what they are doing to you today. You cannot expect mercy
from enemies. I think what might be more valuable than cases and laws
would be a self-assertiveness class or martial arts or something that
will get you to voice strenuous objections earlier and more often.
Court fights are fights for sure. You get nowhere being nice anymore.
Soon any kids you have will be adults and you will be able to fill them
in on how their lives got screwed up and how to avoid it for their kids.
Most troubles can be traced back to lies "everyone" believes, and the
Lemming Principle, where people act in ways they do just because they
see others do it. This includes joining the military, marriage
licenses, income taxes, driver's licenses, using Fed debt and credit,
etc. etc. ad nauseum.
