Hey Talltom

Ive been through the court process and I’m still enduring it. I have a solicitor but many hearings I choose to represent myself in the court room. I have taken her (the solicitor) along before a few times though it’s expensive and I don’t think the outcome would have been different had I not. She’s great for me to check in with and make sure I’m on the right track prior to hearing though. She gives me things to consider, like a different angle on the situation. I think in the main, the judges starting position will be your ex partner proving why 50% contact would not be in your child’s interests. I think you should chat with a solicitor about your situation though then represent yourself taking any evidence with you such as failed attempts of reconnecting
