Thank you for your question
My name is Clare
I shall do my best to help you but I need some further information first
For clarity does X have ANY legal qualifications at all?
What is the actual issue before the court
Have you checked with the professional bodies to see if she is either a solicitor or a barrister
Also check if she is a Legal Executive
When is the next hearing?
is that a directions hearing?
Is there a CAFCASS officer involved?
This person is not a qualified legal adviser and accordingly is not covered by the same duties of confidentiality as a qualified person would be.
However you can use this to your advantage
Write a formal letter to your ex's solicitor along these lines.
" I refer to the filed statement of X
Whilst I am at a loss to understand the relevance of my mother's mishap with a rail ticket to this case since you clearly see one I require the following information
Please provide details of X's entitlement to call herself a legal Advocate and confirm that she will be available at the final hearing for Cross examination.
If I do not hear from you on this within the next 21 days I will have no option but to make an urgent applictaion to the court to ask the Court to make an order regrading the issue."
And if the deadline is missed - go for it
I hope that this is of assistance - please ask if you need further details
