I received court papers last week from my ex husband for contact for our 2 year old. He has managed to get the spelling of my daughter’s name wrong as well as her year of birth, do these errors make the application void meaning he would have to reapply with correct information?
He has only seen our child a hand full of times since birth but does have a copy of the birth certificate (so no reason for error).
Hi, I received court papers with my children’s Day of birth wrong. When we had the initial hearing, I told the judge and my husband’s solicitor. The judge didn’t seem to worried and said he would amend it, he hasn’t all papers since still have the wrong date. I give up everything is recorded so there is evidence I have tried to correct it. I know that’s not much help. Sorry xx
I wouldnt worry you can politely inform judge and give the correct details on day of hearing. It would make your ex look pretty stupid as well for making such mistakes in application you would think. The application certainly wouldnt be void though. Hopefully you go to hearing and you are able to sort out child arrangements amicably
Hi, I know i am a dad and all etc. However Christie unless you are getting legal aid which wont cost you money by way!. If you are not you really dont want to be getting legal advice for something about incorrect details on form. Always come on forum as solicitors charge hundreds if not thousands and i dont want to see this happen to you. Only use solicitors for very complicated matters that you feel forum cant help you with as a last resort.
A simple email or phone call to ex could easily cost £100 whereas on this forum advice is free
