TOPIC: Appeal of CAO Hearing- What can I expect?

Appeal of CAO Hearing- What can I expect? 1 week 3 days ago #99970

My ex is appealing a CAO that was pretty favourable to me tomorrow. What is likely to happen? How can I find out? I have written two Skeleton Arguments in response to her Skelly for the Appeal and a C" requesting review of the order. Will I take the stand? Will I be able to question her?

I take it that it was a magistrates order and you're going in front of a judge? Or is is district judge up to circuit judge?

You can only appeal on a point of law, not because she doesn't like a decision.

What happens in the hearing will depend on the judge's views and what points they are hearing the appeal on.

I would edit your post to take out the court venue as it could identify you.

It's impossible to make suggestions about individual cases with so little information as each one varies.

Best of luck

I’ve edited out the location of the court.

I don’t know too much about the appeals process, but you should be given the opportunity to put your case forward at the hearing... cross examination usually happens at the final hearing.

All the best
