Final hearing
#1
Hi,

I am going to use a barrister in final hearing scheduled for 2 days.
Please can someone give me advice on whether i need to provide a skeleton argument if i have a barrister? Is this separate to a position statement?
Lastly, can i provide character references for final hearing and do people think this is a good idea?

Thank you

As your last Hearing, the Judge will of set out what reports they want and when by.

If your going to file anything, you must do it in the timeframe stated.

By intoducing referances at this stage you do have a problem in law. If you had gone on court record that they exist, then they would of had to be avaliable for cross examination at the final hearing, by your ex or her representative. Now they would only be usefull, to respond or disprove any claims your ex might of made.

If the legal teams do a deal on the day, they will draw up an Order for the Judge between them.
Posts made by me are my opinion and any factual information should be checked out. If you do not have a Solicitor, often your local CAB can get you some initial advice.

Hi,
I am putting together my final statement and evidence to file before Monday 21/01
Do i also have to file my position statement at this time even though I do not have a date yet for final hearing.
It does not mention position statement in court order but I presume position statement should be filed with other evidence including witness statement?
