Hi good people of wikivorce

Simply put, I am a Litigant in Person and my ex''s solicitor is putting together a bundle for a final hearing next week. I do not yet have all the contents of the bundle but have the main sections as required by practice direction for family proceedings.

My questions are as follows. I wish to include some documents which will form part of my case i.e text messages, pictures etc which I wish to use in cross examination. Should/Can I have ex''s solicitor include this in bundle? If yes, must solicitor provide me with evidence they too will rely on in court? If No, how do I present these important documents as evidence in support of my case?

Thank you for your help as always.

The bundle that is relied upon by the parties is the same bundle that the Judge has. Where documents are included by a party, a copy of those documents has to be disclosed to the other side and included in the bundle for the judge.

You say this is a preliminary hearing in your subject line - is a bundle required in this instance?
