JCC Scheduling Problems

Here’s an issue:  Rule 60E(6) of the Rules of Court (Rule 7-1(8) of the Family Rules which come into effect in a few days)  dictates that a Requisition and Notice of Judicial Case Conference and a copy of Parts 1, 2, 3, and 4 of a Form 89 (soon to be F8) Financial Statement must be served on a party at least 30 days before the date set for the JCC.  In the event that a  JCC is scheduled  for only  few days after service, the only recourse is to attend and complain at the very JCC that was improperly scheduled.  There should be a requirement to provide proof of service or delivery, as the case may be, at least three weeks before the conference, failing which it would be struck.
