I am self representing and I have completed the First Directions Appointment and have the judges approved questions for both sides. Something however has just come to light that may well impact the outcome quite substantially. Does anyone know how I go about adding further questions in an official capacity? Do I need to write to the presiding judge? I assume it will be better to have the questions and hopefully answers in place before the FDR.
I can drop the questions to my ex’s solicitor, but I doubt very much they will want to either answer the question or have the request in front of the judge. Unfortunately I can find plenty of stuff on the process for these hearings, but nothing covering adding further questions officially.
There should be provision for additional questions to be raised after answers have been exchanged. You should go ahead and ask her solicitor anyway. If they won't answer then you can make a D11 application to ask the judge for directions. You would need to explain why the question is important. If they agree the judge can order that it is answered.
