Please could someone advise me.
Was due to attend Finding of Fact Hearing 4th 5th May but developed DVT last Monday so in a lot of pain & cannot walk so hearing adjourned at 4.45 yesterday.
However the Judge has ordered another Diections Hearing for Tuesday morning with just Barristers present, why? We've had so many of these
I dont see why they didnt just give us an alternative date.
What do you think they will achieve this time?
Thank you

Hi I know how frustrating the court process is. Lots of direction hearings finding of facts even final hearings that just arent! I wonder whether you are privately funded or legally aided? I have been to several hearings where absolutely nothing has been achieved! Its like being on a merrygoround that you just cant get off of. I am sure a lot of barristers just love to pontificate over nothing. Be really strong with your solicitor and ask exactly what will be achieved from another Directions hearing. good luck

Sadly I'm funding myself £11,000 to date not including next Tuesdays hearing
I dont even know what all this expensive stressful litigation is about.
When we separated my X agreed to move to the same area as myself & children... Then changed his mind.
He sees the children alternate weekends but lives too far for mid-week contact
So we carry on & on
