Anyone know about this?
My partner is going through tons of problems in contact with his son
Re: previous posts. It''s all become rather silly, so he has a hearing next Wednesday, he''s self-repping (thanks to Wiki)
He joined FNF in the hope to have a MF there on the day. Due to lateness in his request, no one was available.
So I looked on line and came up with a site, that advertised MF all over the country.
A chap called me said I needed to send him details of contact problems.
I have a very short memory and could only remember the last five missed
He said my partner was to phone him at 10.15 last night promptly.
This chap berated my partner for my inadequate knowledge of his sons contact arrangements, but agreed to represent him not in court but over the phone tonight and to pay him £120 by Friday.
He said that he could give him the edge with his legal knowledge.
Although the entire problems with the contact issues seem to be about his sons mother saying ''You don''t have to see Dad if you can''t be bothered''
Whereas I would have thought that would have been a given that would not be deemed by the courts as unexceptable anyway.
Nope nothing at all, not a sausage
Maybe someone who''s used one, could help?
Poor partner, he''s very vulnerable at the moment, misses his son loads.
I think if someone said ''Give me a grand, you can take your son to the park for an hour'' he''d rush to the cashpoint..
Yeah how can i put this, let me see, oh yes tell him to bugger off.
Is he a lawyer, that would be no.
If your partner wants help the wiki line is free of charge (not £120).
Some MF`s can be very good but some are in it for money, beware of those, personally if they charge for loss of earnings or traveling expenses that`s fine, above that is fine if they are legally qualified and therefore insured.
Your partner would be better off taking a friend, he will really struggle to find a decent MF with so little time.
I''ve always found The Children''s Legal Centre excellent for sound advice (and Wki of course), but they can''t come to Court with you. When my hubby first self-repped in 2009 I did contact a MF, very nice woman who rang him. She didn''t charge for phone advice and as it was we couldn''t afford her for the hearing as she was at the other end of the country, but she did communicate via email and was supportive and helpful.
I would stay away from this MF. Sounds dodgy to me.
