I'm making an Application to remove and take my childre

Customer Question

I'm making an Application to remove and take my children home to the US with me. Their father (also American) will dispute it.
I represent myself. We have a court date on Feb 11 on other children's matters. Our CAFCASS guardian has suggested I file the Application to remove before the 11th and "have it joined to matters on the 11th and ask the judge to give direction on that day"
Questions are:
1. When I take the application to court to file it this week, how do I make sure it gets joined to the hearing on the 11th of Feb?
2. Do I use form C100?
3. Do the exhibits have to accompany the Application on the day I file it?

Thank you question.

The form you need is a form C1 available here
http://www.familylaw.co.uk/system/uploads/attachments/0002/1995/c1_e.pdf
When you send the forms in you should also send a letter requesting that the matter be linked with the ongoing matter - and quote the Case Number.
You do not have to put in the dossier at the same time - but it would be a good idea to put it in before the hearing
