I am a LIP and survived the First Drection Hearing for contact with my son. I agreed to a Wishes and Feelings report and now have that, along with an Interim Contact Order. I now have a second hearing and received a Notice of Proceedings, Hearing form. Exs solics wrote to me asking if I would agree proposals for contact, but they were identical to what I have said were unacceptable before so I said again that I could not agree to them .
Estinate for this court hearing is 30 minutes.
What will go on in the hearing, what is the procedure? I thought that CAFCASS would attempt to mediate further and would be at hearing but apparently not- totally on my own this time!.
I am expecting a full section 7 report to be ordered, which would be OK but would take ages. What do I need to prepare for this hearing, I would like to try to get the interim order improved slightly in that presently my son will only see me for 2 separate weeks out of the 7 of the summer holidays and I would like to get another week to be ordered. Any chance do you think?
Thanks a lot, coping so far.

This hearing is to ascertain where the case currently is after the report, and what further work needs to be done to get you to a full hearing if required. You can try and get an extra week, but really the judge is limited to directions.
