Good afternoon ..I had my final hearing in December following a section 7 report from caffcass. Having had constant access to my son since birth me and my ex partner have had numerous disagreements over the years resulting in her stopping my contact with him. Following 2 years of family mediation numerous gaps in me being allowed to see him because she said so. I thought enough was enough and made a court application against her. How ever I have been representing myself and my ex had hired a solicitor, and has decided to use this as an opportunity to get me the worst possible deal she could think or in terms of contact with my son. She has come to court accusing me of b
eing domestically abusive yet there is zero evidence regarding this. She did however have a few voice recordings and txt messages of phone calls where she had previously stopped my access and I have used  bad language towards her in sheer frustration of not being able to see my son. I have never been arrested for acting abusively toward her nor had she ever reported such things to the police. We had been separated for nearly 7 years and some of these txt messages are 4 years old. Caffcass reccomend that because I deny the allegations she had made apart from obviously the txt messages , that the contact stay the same which is what my ex suggested not the court or caffcass which is 1 days  supervised contact at my parents home. They would of sent me on a domestic abuse course but with me denying the allegations and the courts favouring my ex partners story they would not. So there is no alternative to getting an improved contact. Please help I fear I am out of my depths now and would really appreciate any advice given

hi,

yep can take time getting used to site. please let us know how your next hearing goes. I think you should hire a barrister as it sounds like it will be complicated.
