P.S
Do Judges actually read the position statements?

I handed mine in last week but should I hand another in just before the hearing to make sure he/she gets one?

Joe,
I feel for you. At least your ex is being reasonable to some extent. Mine is trying to keep me apart. Joe.... Just be patient and remain whiter than white.
:)

and yes they do read position statements. be very diplomatic and nice and cuddly. do not use a harsh tone.

Do judges read position statements? Not necessarily, unless the court required them to be submitted and they are brief and to the point. LIPs are often advised to prepare a statement to help them remain focused on the issues when strictly speaking they aren''t required. Some judges find them useful and will read them, others don''t, particularly if a position statement is overly long and not child centred.
