Hello, this has been sent to me now, thank you for your patience.
Please bear in mind as this is an email service and not live chat I may not respond immediately.
I will look over this and come back to you shortly with a response.
No problem. Yes I imagine the initial hearing may be listed at the same time as the non-mol return date, as all parties will be involved already.
Cafcass would speak to parties by telephone even in normal circumstances before the court hearing, rather than visit in person. You may well expect a call from them.
My understanding is that the court will only take one fee for the total application - but the court will confirm.
For now the court needs to process the application and you will hear in due course about a hearing date. As I said I expect it would be tied in with the date of the August hearing.
Can I assist further today?
Yes they would notify in advance - they would normally make contact by email or text first then follow up with a call. Questions will be just about background issues, any current concerns and so on. I would have thought it would make sense for the court to list as a telephone hearing.
