When you attend a hearing the most important point for you is for the Judge to understand what you want him to do. Trying to explain your position 'on the hoof' without getting jumbled up, miss things and go off on a tangent is extremely difficult, which is where a well written Position Statement becomes invaluable.

When the court is concerned about the children's welfare or safety they will invariably order a Section 7 Report. learn how to get the best from them, and how to deal with a report that is clearly incorrect, or does not suit what you think should be ordered by the court.
