Child arrangement orders
#1
Good morning everyone,

My name is Michal . I am foreign national living in UK for 12 years. I got divorced in November. I have got 2 children my boy is nearly 5 and my daughter nearly 3. I am about to attend First Dispute Resolution Hearing in Feb. I was recently charged with Breach of Non Molestation  and sentenced for 6 month suspended for 18 moths. There was no criminal content with the breaches just sending text messages and emails and one instance of conversation she started herself. 
I want to see my children as unsupervised contact at least once a week with possibility of overnight stay. I do not see any reasons why I should be seeing my children as supervised contact as what my ex wants. Court due to Criminal charges against me ordered that Cafcass report to be presented 
I cannot afford a solicitor, I will be representing myself. Please could you please advise regarding what should I do? Is there anyone to help me prepare to the hearing.? I know that legal aid is not available in my case even though I am on very low income. 
How should I conduct my part of the meeting. I am at the end of my tether having gone through of 5 months of courts cases being locked up etc. I am not very well mentally either because of that. I have not seen my children for last 5 months. 

Kind regrads

Michal

While you can not get Legal Aid, your local CAB should be able to get you a free 30 min chat wtih a local Solicitor.
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 Mark.
Went to CAB . I spoke to solicitors on different occasion so they will not give me another 20 minutes for free.
