Do you have to pay that each time you go back to court?

So cost has actually gone down??

Unfortunately you do have to pay again!

Yes, the cost has gone down by a whole £5.

Quick Update:

I've had my first call with CAFCASS to explain in more detail the application.

The CAFCASS officer has now advised that the hearing will not go ahead in personal (due to COVID-19) but rather by conference call. The CAFCASS officer also advised that we both will probably need to prepare statements ahead of the hearing.

Has anybody done this? I assume this will be a position statement (although the officer didn't say).

Fingers-crossed, I can get shared-equal care!

hi,

you should check court paperwork. does it ask you to prepare any statement?

if not, just do position statement for your hearing, outlining your situation and what you are asking for in terms of shared care. as its remote hearing, email it so court, cafcass and your ex in advance.

Thanks Bill, I plan to prepare a position statement.

It doesn't explicitly state this in the court papers however, the CAFCASS officer mentioned it today and it should be in the update letter they send to both parties and the court.
