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?
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.
