You would need to apply using form C2 - to add a further application to existing proceedings. It’s always better to take the form in person to the court, to stress the importance of getting it before a judge urgently, but there are no guarantees.

I remember a member that tried to add another application to an existing case with the C2 and was told to submit a C100 instead... so to cover all eventualities I would take both.

I'm not a lawyer or barrister and my responses are based on my own opinions or experiences of the family court.

I may not be legally trained... but I have plenty of experience and common sense!

Thank you Mojo that's good to know, we will do both just in case.

Do we need to provide a statement and evidence to go along side it or just write on the form what it is we are asking for?

It’s probably best to apply for an ex parte (no notice) application, which means that they don’t contact the other party until after the hearing.

You should give a brief explanation on the form, but it would be helpful to provide a brief statement to give more details about the reasons why you are applying urgently, and any risks to the child. Refer to any evidence you have in the statement, state that you will have it with you at the hearing, but don’t attach it.

Best of luck
