Just call the court on Thursday morning if I receive nothing?

I'm expected to reply by 1st of July so best to tell them if I don't receive isn't it. I have no details of her solicitor yet.

Right - if they miss the deadline, raise it with the judge next time and say you need more time to respond. Simple as.

That is if you want to do this. But perhaps you don't to speed up things. Depends on your circumstances and your ability to respond within a short timeframe.

worst case scenario is if ex and solicitor be dopey and don't submit documents for the hearing, and it gets re-scheduled for another date. or they may scrap idea of fact finding.

Good evening all,

4pm came and I had no emails with table with allegations!

I read through the order and it says above the date and time she has to submit "the parties must comply with these directions".

I would have thought if she had a solicitor it would have been done on time etc.

some solicitors are disorganized. others are cunning and do that to stall the process, try get the hearing re-scheduled to future date.

I received the table today but from Cafcass as solicitor claimed that she couldn't find a way to contact me.

I'm trying to get my head around the court order:

1) Do I write a brief description in the box as stated denied. Then desperately right a statement with more detail. I can write denied to all but have relevant information as to why its false.

The person against whom the allegations are made will then be asked to respond to the allegations within a set timeframe. You should respond to each allegation in turn, setting out your account of the incident or stating that the allegation is denied.

You will both be asked to make written statements based on your evidence setting out what you wish to say to the court. You can also have witnesses give evidence with the court’s permission.

if her allegations are garbage, there's no point writing essays. you will probably realise that proving that she is a liar etc will not make much difference. people lie too much and get away with it in these family courts.

This was a template given to me by a solicitor(neighbour) , not sure what it will achieve and my hearings on the 20th July.

They are professionally represented so they should be providing this on time.

Dear Sirs,

I write further to the current directions in respect of myself and Ms xxx , regarding the claimants Non Molestation Order.

It should be noted that the claimant has failed to comply with the current orders given, whereby Ms xxx legal representative was instructed to provide 5 alleged allegations in writing by 22nd June 2020.

"The Applicant has permission to serve a schedule of allegations by 22 nd June 2020"

It is, and has always been denied by the respondents, that I have ever behaved in any way whatsoever that warrants such response from Ms xxx.

The claimants are therefore completely unfounded, frivolous, vexatious and totally controvertible.

As Ms xxx, has failed to act accordingly. I would respectfully ask that the court strongly considers the withdrawal of this segment of the claimants action from these proceedings.

Yours Faithfully

The form is filled out wrong by her solicitor, it states me as the respondent and has the wrong case number! I advised the courts about the delay but also contacted and told them I had received it late. They emailed me earlier to advise that they hadn't received anything and would have to contact her solicitor.

Rather than supply a statement referencing each number allegation in more detail, it's been crammed in each box. For most allegations, I've counted with reasons as to why our relationship was never like that and reference documents that I hold. I'm not using a solicitor for this part as it seems pretty pointless.

Is there anyway in which I can find out what ground she is getting legal aid on? The police have confirmed there is no police record of the allegations which is what she claimed to Cafcass. I'm wondering if she's claiming legal aid fraudulently.

None of it is also signed with a statement of truth!

try to keep it brief and child-focused. your going for access to see your child, she probably babbling on about how bad the relationship was.

she can get legal aid if she's on benefits or very low income. also weak claims of domestic violence/abuse helps.

if you think shes cheating, you can ask legal aid agency to look into it:
