Customer Question

I am representing myself re contact issues and have applied to increase contact order, had a hearing on 18/11/13. which was adjourned until 24th Feb 2014 (for cafcass reports),
But somehow didn't realise i had to file my own statement by 11th Dec until just now.
should i just do and send now and say nothing, or add an apology or ring the court?
And what usually happens re this as very worried now!

many thanks

Hello,

My name is Mac. I can help you with your question. First I need a bit more information:

- what other directions are there between now and the hearing in February (apart from the CAFCASS report)?

- have either of you been late with anything before in proceedings?

Hi Mac,

There are No other hearings,

Not been late with documents but the last two contacts I was late as stuck hrs on M25, no excuse but judge remarked about it and was not happy!
