[Solved] FHDRA Represnting myself
Please if anyone can advice me.
I have my 1st court hearing approaching and after telephonic interview with CAFCAS I was told there is a risk is invloved for my daughter as my wife been into emotional distress because of me and also they will be sending some safeguard letter.
Also i have an assault charge hanging over my head which was just because of a slap with no marks about which I am in denial but I was given 100 hours of community service which i have completed and attending marriage rehab programme.
I do not know how i can prove that i was not the reason for her emotional trauma but I have WhatsApp chat printed for month before she left in which we are talking very good to each other(mainly me). I am not sure if this is going to make any difference.
Also is it possible that f court is adjourned for next date, then would they give me a supervised contact with my daughter before the 2nd hearing.
And are they going to ask me any questions on 1st hearing or do I need to suggest any thing to court.
Plz every little advice will make big difference to me.
if your ex is going to have a lawyer on day of hearing, then expect them to make things as difficult as possible for you. i think it is highly likely that they will ask for a fact finding hearing. then most likely a section 7 report to be done by cafcass. because you have an assault charge, they will make big deal out of this, and probably exaggerate and make lot of allegations about you.
are you seeing your child at all right now? if not, then the court will likely keep this the same, as a precaution for time being. likely they will say you need to take some course about domestive violence. and will probably suggest you seeing your child in a contact centre. you will need mountains of patience for all this.
Thank you so much for the reply, I been seen my daughter from the day my wife left to the day i was charged with assault and given restraining order.
It was every other weekend my wife used to drop her at my house.
How i can prove that emotional distress is an false allegations against me apart from that nice whatsapp chat of full month between me and my wife month before this incident happened of which I am still in denial
Would they give me supervised contact on first hearing if I request for one
anything could happen. yes try asking for an interim order where you can still see your child while court process rolls on.
Thank you so much, I had hearing yesterday and given an other date in April but also got interim order to see my daughter twice a month under supervision.
Just last advice if you know any contact centres in greater manchester or near blackburn which are not very expensive or maybe free....
