Making a court application and representing myself

(8 Posts)

Has anyone done this? I need to apply for a non molestation order and to arrange child contact.

Have been through courts once with representation. I can't afford one again.

Any advice much appreciated

You should be able to get represented through the legal aid scheme if you cannot afford a solicitor

You can only get legal aid if there has been DV or child protection concerns.

To apply for a child arrangements order you need to fill out 3 copies of form C100 and file them at your local office of the family court, the fee is £215 for this.

Thank you, I received some legal aid previously due to dv but paid a contribution.

It's 3 years down line now so can't be linked I don't think.

Can't afford the fees right now

Surely you wouldn't be lodging an no application unless there was DV or some form of harassment

There is harassment, via text mostly.

As it was previously when non mol was granted. From what I understand the new harrassment would need to be within a time frame related to previous application.

Have you reported it to the police?

I plan to report to the police, although doing so previously served no purpose. That's when I went to court.

He couldn't really care less about Police I don't think but the non mol stopped things.
