...It’s not on that her solicitor has so little respect for you and for court procedure! Here’s an interesting article about late filing... the judge has the power to set aside any statements/evidence if it has been filed late, it’s something that you could ask for at least.

Best of luck

hi,

you should write to the court, in polite terms, stating that your self-representing and following the rules, ex has a solicitor and they are being dumb and disorganised. and explain the distress and hardship you will suffer if the court process is delayed, due to you not seeing your child. tell them that delays will not be in the best interests of the child. don't be surprised if her solicitor emails you, asking to agree to postpone the hearing. do not agree to that and state your reasons as mentioned above.

when i was going through this, ex solicitor emailed me, asking if hearing can be adjourned, because they were late in applying for legal aid and it hasnt come through yet. lol. i said no thanks, and court ignored their nonsense and hearing went ahead as scheduled :)
