In late Jan 2015, I went through a 5 day trial for parenting and property settlement case. The result was that some interim orders for the children arrangements were handed down on the last day of trial by the judge ( family court), and the judge said he'd be back in regards to his final orders in the near future. The interim orders were very basic, and now it's coming up to a year since the trial and still nothing from the family court. I have missed so many special occasions of my children's life and growing moments. This will be both the children's and my first Christmas without seeing one another at all. The children are frustrated and upset just as much as me and I wonder how much more this unnecessary limbo mode must go on for? I have contacted the registry and asked what's going on. I am told: "no date set yet, listed as dare to be decided, and I can't say when Justice ••••••••• will have made his decision, all you can do is keep checking back with us every few days". I am respondent and have no legal representation. The ex is the applicant and has a team of qualified high paid, not legal aid representation. Does anybody know what is my next step, so that I can: 1. Have the interim orders made into more precise terms? i.e. birthdays, Christmas, school events, etc shared between both parents? 2. Know an approx time frame the judge will have final orders for children arrangements? 3. Property settlement orders so far are not even mentioned in interim but did form part of the case and judge did draw attention saying he'd be looking at in final orders. Why am I still struggling and not able to afford lawyers due to his wastage of the pool? 4. Can I request via application in a case to have current interim orders changed? 5. How do j go about showing the presiding judge that he has made a mistake in his interim orders because of no other reason than lack of my representation to get my side across? 6. I am being shut out of my kids life. How do I show the judge the parent alienation and the clear examples of the ex not being capable of co-parenting? 7. How do I have the use of a contact Centre changed given it is and was always a waste of resources and put in place simply because the ex had money and lawyers to dictate? Any direction for what I can do to have the children spend time with both parents on a 50/50 basis would be very much appreciated. We now live within 10 minutes drive of each other. In the previous years, we lived 1 hour away but since the trial, I have moved closer to children but still no extra time is being offered by the ex. Thank you in advance.
