Hi I'm a LIP and a bit stuck and looking for a guide or structure for the statement in a c100 urgent application. I am doing this online so it applies all the right forms, c2, etc.
I just don't get what length or kind of statement the judge needs to make an interim decision!
FPR 12B, 12J and says that I can attach evidence because it is urgent. No telephone hearings without a lawyer. I also say I should in each case have a statement.
Some people on here say that you only need salient bullet points. So you don't reveal your hand. ~That post was 9 years ago.
I really want the judge just to make the order with a good grasp of what I need. I presume these reasons are shared with the other side eventually (or are they?).
And at a later date, we can raise position statements and skeletons, etc.
I am thinking I should put a 2-page statement to include summary, background and chronology and order sought. The chronology would include, exception from miam, welfare checklist, the capacity of the parents, avoiding confrontation, agreements.
So, can I have a few opinions of why I should or shouldn't this much detail, and also please write me an outline of what I should put for an urgent C100 application, and how many words etc.
Else I will just put:
- allegations of domestic abuse have been quashed by police
- resident parent has PTSD
- the non-resident parent is a vulnerable adult
- police see no reason why contact with child or mother should be stopped
- there are no injunctions in enquiries to local court
- contact has been longer than 3 months
- I am asking for 2 days contact, and don't mind a contact centre or handover so ResParent cannot be \"disturbed\".
Why is your application urgent, it seems as though you are making an application for a Child Arrangements Order rather than a Prohibited Steps or a Specific Issue Order.
Urgent applications are made when time is of the essence to prevent a parent taking a certain action (such as removing a child from the jurisdiction unlawfully), or to allow a parent to take a certain urgent action (such as emergency medical treatment).
