My ex partner took me to family court after being arrested for 'threat to kill' after threatening to burn the house down with myself and children in it. The Judge asked to be told the outcome and said he would make a decision when known. In the meantime he said to speak to Cafcass and said we could go back to court once the criminal verdict was known. I have no representation as my legal aid was cancelled 'because we are a government agency and we have the power to invoke that'. He was found guilty and I chose to go back to court but was hijacked by his solictor who dragged me back into court the day before sentencing to have me found in contempt of court for not seeing cafcass. we sat in front of a differnt judge and she did not care one bit that he had been found guilty of trying to kill me. Now I am in contempt of court. he was found guilty of threat to damage or destroy property
i would like some advice on how to move forward and make sure that my daughter is not forced to see a man of whom she is afraid. She has a cafcass interview next week and im so worried he will twist what she says. Tell me how to make this stop. I dont understand how it can continue after his prosecution but its legal procedure over common sense. You can help me by telling me how to finish it?
