Start with date , case ref number at top, applicant name v respondent name

Write your statement in chronological order and numbered
Stick to facts and mention in each point if you have hard evidence to support what you say

Finish off with a statement of truth , e.g. 'I believe the facts stated in this statement to be true

That will help x

- try and keep it short
- at th end it's not uncommon to ask the court what you want to happen next/ what you want it to order (such as, appointment of cafcass, financial disclosure etc depending on the nature of the case)

When I completed the CAO I found their own guidance notes kept me

Why are you here?
What arrangements have you had before and why have they broken down?
What do you want the court to do?

Something like that.
