Thank you for your question

My name is ***** ***** I shall do my best to help you

Unless you are officially joined into the proceedings then you are not even able to apply for Legal Aid, even if you are financially eligible.

Unless the child is placed with you then I am afraid that it is unlikely that you will be made a Party

Please ask if you need further details
