Hi, I'm Lea and I have reviewed your query.
Can you clarify what your question is please?
Please bear in mind this is an email service and not a live chat so responses may not be instantaneous. I am not available for calls, but in all cases it is very likely you can be helped online.
Which testing centre did your son use?
You would know as an ex police officer, that how evidence is collected certainly does matter in a court of law.
Crystal Health Group are accredited - so now I am unclear as to why he has been told he has not followed procedure.
Do you have anything in writing from CAFCASS detailing why they think the testing is incorrect?
Yes, I can imagine it is incredibly frustrating for you all.
However, without certain information I am struggling to see what exactly is going on here. Crystal Health Group is accredited, so there should be no issue with their results - unless CAFCASS are suggesting he somehow managed to falsify the collection or results.
You cannot represent him in court as you do not have rights of audience (barristers, solicitors and some legal executives), but you can attend with him as a McKenzie friend. You will not be able to speak on his behalf (unless the court permits you to), but you will be able to assist him by taking notes etc.
If you can get something concrete to me regarding why CAFCASS thinks the procedures have not been followed, I can advise a bit more on that.
You're very welcome, though I feel I could have assisted you better with more information about why CAFCASS have said what they did. If you get something, please do come back to me.
In the meantime, if you are content, please rate positively using the five stars at the top of your page as that is how I am paid for assisting you. Thank you.
Bless you, that is very kind.
I hope it all goes well for you.
