OC's claim stinks to high heaven!!

The parties stipulated and signed on the dotted line. The judge signed it off. It's a done deal. The stipulation is in your case file. And after 7 months, the judge wants to change it?? Bullsh1t!!
BTW - You need to make a trip to the court clerks office and get a complete copy of your case file. Make sure everything's there, especially that stipulation.
Here's the deal: It's very unusual for a judge to call one attorney but not the other. For that matter, it's highly improbable that the judge would call at all. This is a very big red flag, Bro.
Moreover, if what OC says is true, then your attorney should've received the same call.....and not just a "courtesy call" either, but an official summons, like a bona-fide appearance in judge's chambers.
Bottom line: There's no reason to modify the stipulation. It's a done deal. Stick to your guns.
Q: What does your attorney have to say about this??

Another red flag. Be wary of OC writing anything, much less a modification to the stipulation. Be on your guard!! You must never trust OC for anything.

Two months to go. No worries, right??
BTW - NJ should owe you some retroactive CS monies.
