The court personnel cannot and will not give you legal advice. If you have an attorney and call the court, the court personnel cannot talk to you or answer your questions. You must direct all inquiries toward you attorney. *** look up the language in the brochure about not giving legal advice

You cannot talk directly to the judge. Explain why. Explain if you do so, in contradiction to this directive, the judge may then recuse herself and a visiting judge be assigned to the matter for which you are concerned.
