Did you come to any agreement at mediation Nick? Or are you waiting for the legal aid to be granted?

I want to see a much fairer system in place, where Dads and their children have a voice that can be heard.
There are many groups of people that have equal rights within our society and its about time Dads were given equal rights too.

...Hang on in there Nick... once you have legal aid you'll be able to go to court for contact with your son. I know all the waiting is hard, but it will be worth it in the end, and once you have your son in your arms once more, all the pain and unhappiness of your seperation will just melt away.

Nick, have a read of yoji's guide to representing yourself at the top of this legal section, I don't see any reason why you shouldn't start the ball rolling yourself if you feel up to it, and if nothing else, you can start preparing everything you need ready for when you see a solicitor.

Are you able to say what the Social Services involvement is about? It might be something we can ask the Family Rights Group to comment on.

...You're very welcome Nick, its a priviledge to be able to help where I can, although I didnt mean to upset you.

Just remember, anything you need help with, or you're not sure about, or you just want to sound off about... we're here for you, to listen and to help where we can.

Take care.

I had a similar issue with my application for legal aid. It took just over 6 months for my certificate to come through and this was despite being in regular contact with the Legal Services Commision trying to chase it up. If you have been self employed or the director of a company they seem to put you under imense scrutiny.

The obvious advantage to legal aid is the financial support, but a lot of people don't realise that what you gain in subsidy you lose in time.
