Thanks for the reply, as it was said its good to know there are some good Cafcass officers still around.
For the DRA, do you think I should represent myself this time around, as for the contested hearing I had instructed a solicitors firm to do the court bundle and represent me in court, the fees were eye watering what i paid.
But they did manage to overturn the decision made by Cafcass, as long as I get accepted onto the DVPP course and pass the hair strand test. Or could something else arise? Which I am missing.
The court have also ordered the solicitors firm to do another bundle, for the DRA, again cost to me.
I could do the bundle myself using the previous one, with the extra evidence included???
with bundles, my ex was fully represented by a solicitor. they knew i was not represented (but had barrister for each hearing), and they did a bundle for me. it was basically a zip file, with the c100 form originally used, along with exs position/witness statements, letter that she got legal aid. whatever forms,evidence was used in hearings so far. PDF's. ex solicitor emailed it to me.
