Final Hearing has now been set for the end of October . My son's ex is contesting any contact . The judge has requested an addendum to recommendations of sec7 report once courses have been completed . SW had already recommended contact The judge has been reluctant to take to a further hearing as wanted the case to be resolved . The judge has requested a statement from both parties to be filed and be no longer than 6 pages . Will this have to include contested response to sec 7 and evidence to prove the errors within it.

What courses did he have to do? do you know what social worker recommended contact wise. Does sound like in October your son will be getting contact most likely phased

Anger management and well- being through Andymansclub. A parenting course but the judge asked SW which course, but she did not know or give an answer. Not even anyone who he could contact. And a healthy relationship course which he is on a waiting list for. The judge said she was happy for online courses to be completed. Contact is 1 and a half hours a fortnight to be reviewed for further contact in 6 months

Is that all you are allowed to file then, just a 6 page statement. What about evidence to prove that there are errors within the report. Can they be extra. Ie. Report says didn't keep son safe as declined to phone police after any alleged assaults.in fact have about 8 crime reference numbers when he has phoned the police.
Failed to make any referrals regarding his sons safety. Actually made lots of referrals and even went to the office to voice concerns. It says my son only wanted to see his son for 1 hour, but my son gave the SW a letter he drafted for the sec 7 assessment with his requests and it included overnight stays. the list goes on and on

you should keep it to 6 pages. in it, you can dispute report, and mention some crime reference numbers, no need to list all of them.

hi,

in your statement, you could reply to one about police and explain that you did contact police... then you can put the crime/call log reference number in brackets, or in a footnote. and you can write that you can submit a police statement as evidence if the court requests it.

yep you can take documents with you, in case court may be interested to see them. when i was in court last year, my barrister took out my certificate and showed to judge, that I completed a parenting course.

Yes, I agree - better to take them and not need them, than not take them and need them.

Worth putting in a file and indexing them beforehand (and/or use post-it note page markers) so you can find any document instantly - better than trying the courts patience while trying to find a lost document.

Has anybody experienced a final hearing when you disagree with sw recommendations . Ex has agreed but would not give a date when contact could start . The judge asked for it to start immediately but ex said no . What will the order of the day be . Do you get questioned by the judge ? Any ideas please .
