Wanting more advice following my thread last night.

Today i have realised that the email supposedly sent to me by ex's solicitor on the 14 May informing me of court date and that they had the court papers was never actually sent.

On the forwarded copy which they sent yesterday after i contacted the courts and then phoned them, my email address is in hyphens so therefore invalid and the email addresses, date and subject are all set out in the wrong order and have obviously been hand typed in to the top of the email to look like it was sent on that date.

If i had never received a caffcass pack which happened to mention the date of the hearing....i would never have chased this up so soon and would not of known of the court hearing next week....so obviously wouldn't have shown up.

From bits i have read on here i'm aware of bullying tactics but surely this goes beyond that. Can they get away with doing this??

Very Annoyed Busy Mum!!!!

Hi Busy mum,

You need hard evidence and then some to have a sol held liable by its regulators.

It is very rare for a sol to type the address him or herself. Be very sure of yourself before taking this further.

I would say the solictor has more than likely lied, My expercience of the legal profession is that they are a bunch of dishonest humans, they are no better than used car salesmen.

You can make a complaint, but dont expect and finding in your favor, they protect there own.

I've known lots of used car salesmen, all have been pretty decent people, many struggling over time within an industry that is very poorly structured and often poorly paid. Please don't generalise about their integrity.
