In the last hearing, my ex-wife's barrister met me in the waiting room (before the hearing) under the pretext of discussing the day's proceedings and at the end of the conversation informed me (in a very intimidating and sarcastic manner) that she 'knows the judge very well'. I am fighting a very long custody battle and representing myself. I am of a strong opinion that the judgment made on that day was partial and the same judge will be allocated for the next hearing (as per the order made by the judge). I provided all the proofs for the Parental Alienation and the mother was allowed to go scot-free. My application for the appointment of PA expert was rejected as well.
Can I complain about this to SRA?
How can I request another judge as I believe I won't get a fair trial?
The SRA (Solicitors Regulation Authority) regulates solicitors, not barristers - the Bar Council are the regulatory authority for barristers.
Some barristers like to posture and some do tend to be a bit snotty towards towards the opposing litigant. (apologise to all barristers who are not like this!) That doesn't mean they are in breach of any standards or ethical guidelines.
I am of a strong opinion that the judgment made on that day was impartial
Judgements should be impartial, and based on the best interests of the child, taking into account the evidence and submission before the Court. Perhaps your sentence is a typo??
What support/advice/assistance have you been receiving, or asking for, and from whom? It might be worth giving the helpline a call, and requesting a free 20 min appointment with the Child Issues Consultant.
The ex's Barrister usually comes to the waiting area to discuss the proceedings of the day/waiting time or handover the position statement.
I will call the helpline. I am so frustrated with the proceedings. It is like banging your head on a wall. She certainly has an upper edge because of the Barrister on her side. But I can't give up on my daughter. I have managed to refute false allegations like sexual abuse and DV.
The part that upsets me the most is when I see my daughter getting affected.
