It is a civil case relating to child residince, she had written to the board to consider pulling my funding, the board has contacted my lawyer to respond to it and he has.
I have gave my evidance and have been crossed examined and Her client (my ex wife) is due to give evidance in a few weeks.
Legal aid board has not yet pulled the funding away from me, they have asked my lawyer to responed to the defence lawyers letter for the funding to be stopped.
The defence lawyer is under the impression that the judge will not very the current arangement that is in place....ie me having 3 kids and my ex having 1.
I have gave my evidence and my ex is due to give hers on the 18/12/14,
Am sure the judge would like to hear all evidance before he makes his ruling, such as.....why did my ex accuse me of murdering my childern the leaving them in my care for 2years, and then claim am a wonderful father etc etc etc.
My ex has with held the younest child from me and the rest of the kids, i aam seeking full residency order, but for the interm the judge stated thathe will not very the condition till he hears the full evidence.
Question?...can the defence lawyer act like this without contacting my lawyer?, is this ethical or professional?
Ive not had a response from the legal aid board yet. My lawyer had to responed why it shold remain inforce, they have given them till tye 8th to reply why they should keep paying and wither or not to stop the funding.
They said that the judge is not prepared to change anything. And its no point in funding this to its inevitable.
Hi Claire, can you please give me the further details.
Sorry forgot to ask...... do i have enough reason to make a complaint against my exs lawyer to the law society?
