Thanks for your reply.
I may seek an order to prevent her from removing my daughter from the court district then, although I think these comments are more than likely empty threats than anything else.
Okay, I see. I was just under the impression that there was an e-mail address to send documents in before any hearing, as the solicitor that I had previously had to amend the Minute to Vary the night before the first welfare hearing and I couldn't think of any other way she could get it to the court in time for the hearing the next day unless she emailed it through?
The order has been suspended (don't think that's the correct terminology) to monitor contact.
I will have a good look on that website you sent me, thanks.
I wouldn't qualify for legal aid as I have a well paid job. The reason I am representing myself is because the solicitor bill will just be continuous as the mother of my child is always making things difficult and going through her solicitor every time she wants to talk to me about anything really. She receives legal aid so it's no big deal for her to contact her solicitor at any time. I have just had to pay a 10,000 pound bill, which could and would have gone towards my daughters future. I don't grudge having to pay this bill as I got exactly what I wanted out of it, but just can't be paying bills similar to this amount in the future. I know it's not the wisest to represent yourself in any case but I feel it is the best way for now.
