My ex was supposed to serve their Scott Schedule & Statement a few days ago, but still hasn’t. I was granted an extension due to ill-health, but the Court Order quite specifically stated the Respondent had til x date to serve the papers, and that the Applicant had until xx date by which to respond to them (we have both been directed to do a schedule and statement as we are both citing domestic abuse). We are both Litigants in Person, although ex is very well-advised with family members high up in the legal system, so I don’t think they can claim ignorance. Court doesn’t answer the phone and my emails seem to fall into a black hole where I don’t know if they will get answered or not. Help!
it seems to be common where people don’t stick to the deadlines for submitting statements, and courts are too lenient. are you emailing the correct address for the court? as they have ones for different purposes. If there is no non-molestation order involved, you could contact ex about the statement, or their family member to be on safe side.
Thanks for your reply, Steve. We have just been using a single email address so far for all communication to the Court. I am almost no contact with my ex, aside from via a parenting app, and haven’t been in touch with anyone in their family for several years (they are all overseas and I do believe have been pitted against me over several years in the lead up to the separation anyway). No non-molestation order, but for my own wellbeing I am really needing to minimise my direct contact with the ex (particularly as I recover from my health issue, which will take some months). Hopefully I will have some success with the court.
