I submitted the paper C100 on the 1st October in Nottingham, Yesterday13th I got a letter saying that all subsequent proceedings will be at Derby - that's it nothing to say why or what I can do.
Cafcass not involved yet - too soon - but had to be from Leicester last time (2 years ago) no explanation given but ex-husband told me later it was due to his proceedings with my ex . I was told that the case had to be heard in the jurisdiction the children were in but if the CAFCASS has to be different region why would this be a valid reason.
All it says is:
court orders :that the proceedings concerning the children be transferred to the Family court at Derby
because: By order (? - no explaination other than that)
Ordered by Assistant Justices Clerk S TollyField
on 9th Oct 2015
No dates set as yet.
I'm not sure what kind of magistrate she is serving as, last time she didn't even say she was working there only doing 'voluntary work' which is suspicious in itself.
Is there a way to find out?
The main problem i have is that I know from seeing it first hand that they are quite happy to accept money for services related to them working as Magistrates in the Derby court system - so to expect them not to be underhanded in my case is a big ask. I've raised this before but it's one persons word against another if it's in the Derby court system. My Ex has committed perjury in the Family courts before with her ex-husbands case. Her ex-husband got it moved to Nottingham because her Father was a Magistrate and knew/still knows the judges in the Derby court.If the courts could look at his papers which are in Nottingham then it would show those court documents submitted then were completely false (because I was around then) and that would be of help in my case to highlight the same problems I'm having.
Sorry the above is detail you probably don't want or can use but that is the undelying truth. In theory the courts are supposed to be impartial in reality I've seen it work differently.
