Hi everyone, I’m new here!

I’m coming to the end of a long 9 month child arrangements order application.

To sum it up, mum is an alcoholic, cafcass have recommended shared care but for my daughter to be with me for 4 nights one week, 5 the next and half of all holidays, which is fantastic!

However, since court proceedings began there have been the expected domestic abuse allegations, none found true, however mum has been asked to file a statement by tomorrow and I have 2 weeks to reply, which I feel confident with, I have lots of evidence.

I just have a couple of queries if anyone can help?
I’m a litigant in person, she has now hired a solicitor for a final hearing, I’m not bothering as I know I have what I need.
All I need to know is what shall I put in my bundle?
I know her solicitor will have to do this, shall I contact them to confirm?

I will have a position statement and witness statement. But I also have 2 character statements from my step sons dad and his wife stating there’s no concerns in our household. I’ve added this as an exhibit in the witness statement is this right or are these sent in separately?

Anything else I need do you think?

ask the other side to send you a draft contents list for the bundle for you to review and agree. Simply put, you should add anything into the bundle that you may need to refer to in court to support your statements.

If the other side do not agree to include anything additional that you want, create your own ancillary bundle and serve it on them.
