Thankfully I am now receiving legal aid and there are no outstanding bills/balance with the firm.
No idea what you mean by a certificate
Never worry, clearly the law only works when you know how to work it
Contact order broken by the childs mother time after time after time and nothing done - i get in bother for leaving the child back 5 mins late due to traffic.
I understand fathers have no rights in the UK so never worry about my question
Not now the old firm have advised that they will sue for breach of contract - even though I went looking for her and found her through a mutual friend - but because she worked in the old firm if i get my file transferred they will sue if she takes the case on.
So I am now left that I will have to look for another solicitor who will possible fight for me rather than bow to and accept her constantly breaking the court order.
And while I appreciate you saying fathers have rights - my daughters mother broke the contact the first day of the summer holidays and has now taken her away for a week therefore I've lost 3 more days contact that I will never get back as the solicitors firm I am working with say that this is not enough to get legal aid to get it back to court.
So either Northern Ireland legal aid and the law just suck or fathers have more rights in the mainland - cause they certainly have no rights here!!
But thanks again, but I think I have to accept that no legal help will assist me in getting more time with my daughter - I'll just have to wait to her mother stops mentally abusing her or to she 16-18 to spend more time with her
Do what myself??
The solicitor won't even release the file to me to pass to another solicitor, as there is confidential information in it relating to my ex's other 2 sons, who funny enough have never known or seen their father. Difference is, which annoys her, I keep fighting to see my daughter.
Northern Ireland must be different - you can't go to high court without a solicitor/barrister yes the case is in high court as she kept ignoring with the court orders.
High court has made no difference to her complying and this far down the line she still gets away with it. But i break it once and the police are at my door - its a joke.
There is clearly no way round it - thanks, ***** ***** is I have no rights and regardless what I ask the solicitor to do - they tell me no and do their own thing.
Oh to be a mother in Northern Ireland - you can do what you want and get away with it, sure over here a father is nothing
