Thanks for the question - I'll review and come back to you later on today as I'm just with a client currently.
1. This is Cafcass yes. They won't be required to attend at this stage.
2. The commissioner of the test would normally issue you with an invoice for half of the payment - it's split equally. If you cannot afford it and the test does no t aspen, the court may unfortunately make assumptions that allegations of substance abuse are true.
3. If you don't turn up expect the court to make orders that aren't necessarily in your favour, they won't herar your side so it will be very one-sided.
Can I clarify anything about this for you?
She doesn't pay you for the test - she would have to pay the invoice from the test company as would you - you don't normally pay up front for this type of service. I hope that clarifies the point?
