Page 1

the box should read

1. To progress contact out of the Contact Centre and to include Overnight Contact

2. To enforce the use of the correct surname

Page 3 - 1c No exhibits - take it out.

Page 5 - 3b Take out everything after the words "different name"

page 6 - you are NOT Going to get this dealt with ex-parte it has to be on Notice - so pages 6 and 7 need redoing

The urgent hearing is in respect to the use of the name - so take the rest out. Also take out the word alienation - that is to be used later on

in statements

So at 4a in both boxes use just the first sentence/paragraph in each

The proposed timetable should be 3 days

In the box put

"It is important to resolve the surname issue swiftly to avoid confusion"

Page 7 - not relevant

I cannot open the statement - can you send it again please

Expert:  Clare replied 1 year ago.

Ok

Thank you for this.

You will need to redo the Statement concentrating on the name issue - that is the only reason you are seeking an emergency order and that is the only reason a Statement might be accepted at this stage.

You also need to remove the emotional language

You do not need the exhibits at this stage - this is a brief statement explaining how you are aware that the incorrect name is ***** *****

So far as the progress of contact is concerned all you should say that it has proved impossible to move it on and accordingly the intervention of the court is necessary.

You have to remove the emotive language - it allows your ex to portray you in a negative light - do not let that happen
