Ask a Scots Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Thanks for your question. I am a solicitor in Scotland. Unless you are acquainted with the sheriff court rules and how to draft court papers you will not be able to raise a case for contact to a child. A family action is not a form filling type of case. As you say, you have to be able to draft, lodge and serve an Initial Writ and follow through the procedures of receiving Defences, making adjustments to the Initial Writ, preparing and attending the various hearings including a child welfare hearing. The process is designed for lawyers who train for many years learning these matters and unfortunately is not user friendly as regards ***** ***** You really will need to keep using a lawyer. I hope that helps answer your question. Please leave a positive rating so that I am credited for my time.
