Hello, my name is ***** ***** I am a qualified lawyer happy to help you today.
A "Mackenzie friend" is allowed here - which is a friend or family member to accompany the applicant (your Son) to the hearing and to to be there for moral support, take notes, etc. However the court is unlikely to allow you to make oral representations as you are not a party to the case nor have you provided a witness statement in the proceedings. You can go with your Son and ask if you can speak but be prepared that the judge may say no. you would have to be involved in proceedings in some way as a witness or a party (for example as a Grandparent applying for child contact, in which case a formal application would be needed).
