    I have just been to court as a litigant in person for a child arrangement order. Everything went well and I have no problem with what was agreed. I am concerned that the judge asked my wife’s solicitor to draw up the order. Is this usual? I feel that it could be drawn up unfairly in her favourite as it is her solicitor doing it. I have only been given 24 hours by the judge to read and respond. Can I challenge the decision for my wife’s solicitor to be drawing up this order?

    Hi

    I’m not sure whether you have a right to stop your wife’s solicitor drawing up the order but in my experience the solicitor will only write a statement based on what the court has agreed. My situation was that I was being represented by a solicitor whilst seeking a child arrangement order (amongst other things) and there was never any attempt by my solicitor to modify the agreement in any way. I suggest you wait for the order, read it, it will be straight forward and easy to understand, if there’s anything you’re worried about then raise the concerns immediately.

    Her solicitor will draft it but it will be the judge who will approve it (modify if necessary).

    Thank you very much for your replies. It gives a lot of comfort to know that it is not an unusual situation. Fingers crossed they are honest enough to draft it fairly.
