Thank you

It was good to speak to you again.

As we said, focus on the information the court needs - make sure you have the questionnaire and chronology with the court ASAP.

It is helpful that the court have allowed to submit these in the morning. Dopn;t abuse this help by being late with the documents.

In terms of what should be in them - the chronology should be in bullet point form. Keep it simple and know that you can argue the detail at a later date if needed.

The questionnaire we have already covered in a previous thread.

If the other side continue to pursue false allegations you can say:

"Excuse me judge. The other side are seeking to introduce matters that are not relevant here and also not agreed. There have been no facts proven as part of this petition as all allegations my wife made in the petition were withdraw in return for me not opposing the petition. Nothing is proven, I would dispute it all. But, is this really relevant to the issues the court needs to decide? I would appreciate your guidance on this matter. Thank you".

Hopefully that his helpful.

Best of luck.

I was totally lost before I talked to you. Now you have given me the guidance I needed and the confidence. Thank you ever so much! Dan Dambagolla.

I'm always happy to help and I hope to be able to continue to do so for as long as is required. Take care and best of luck for the hearing on Friday, though as I said nothing determinative will happen, it should just be a case of setting out what needs to be done before the next hearing.
