Can I request a child support hearing in New York? Posted on December 04, 2010

I am a single mom, have an 8mos daughter fathered by a married man. He is a banker and I am a nurse. I applied for child support last Oct2010. He received d paper 1 week before he went for a 3 week vacation in Africa with his family last Nov. It is set by court Dec 06, and he cannot attend because he will be to be n France for work. How often can he ask for a reschedule of the hearing? I need his share of the monthly expenses, can I request for a temporary ruling to tie me up until there is a final ruling? He said he will contest any kind of ruling and delay it as much as he could because he knows I cannot afford it financially since my other daughter is in university. What should I do if this will be the case since I cannot afford right now for a lawyer?
