Customer Question

I am acting as LIP and I have the Final Hearing in a Prohibited Steps Order application next week. I submitted my Witness Statement a couple of weeks ago but I now have relevant evidence that I would like to add and refer to in court.
Is there any way of being able to include this evidence at this late stage?

Thank you for your question

My name is Clare

I shall do my best to help you but I need some further information first.

What Order are you asking for and what is the nature of the new evidence?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I'm asking for a Prohibited Steps Order (as mentioned in my original post) the further evidence is a calendar showing the division of childcare between mother and father for 2016 so far.
Expert:  Clare replied 1 year ago.

Prohibiting what?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Internal relocation
Expert:  Clare replied 1 year ago.

Is the calendar likely to be controversial?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Potentially, but backed by evidence.
Expert:  Clare replied 1 year ago.

Why was it not available earlier?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I hadn't thought to produce it, once I did produce it it showed evidence that I think will be compelling so I'd now like to submit it - please tell me how I can do that?

Is your ex represented?
