Thank you for the responses. To answer all of the questions above:

 

Yes, they were a CAFCASS registered mediation and I have already the court forms.
I have spoken to a Mckenzie friend who helped me fill in the C100 and I have spoken to a family solicitor using a free 30 minute session but his approach was quite aggressive.

my son is 5 years old and I am named on the birth certificate. I will have a copy in the post any day now so I can have parental responsibility through his school.

my biggest fear was that I walk into court alone, with no legal counsel, and she is stood there with a solicitor and I get torn apart. Might have seen too many films,  not sure how family court works.
