My family court matter has been going on for 9 years and is very complicated, including a long history of domestic violence and child sexual abuse, which the lawyers have been trying to exclude from proceedings. At our last mention, I was pressured into signing yet another set of consent orders which I told the lawyer I didn't agree with as I was signing them. I specifically asked my lawyer to bring to the Judge's attention the family violence, which he said he would. He didn't end up saying anything about it. Just as the Judge was closing our mention, he asked me if I wanted to say anything and I told him about how the Family Report Writer and evaluating psychologist compiled their reports without being provided with highly relevant and important evidence, including long Domestic Violence history (applications, orders, variations, breaches, police statements, affidavits, etc) and that the police subpoenaed documentation was incomplete, including missing documents on history of sexual abuse investigations and Domestic Violence. The ICL has further not provided the reporting family consultants with important documentation regarding our child's medical condition, which was made available to the ICL. The ICL has been appointed for six months and has not once made any contact with our child's school who are heavily involved with our child's situation (involving CYMHS). The ICL has also not subpoenaed our child's latest counsellor (who he began treatment with before ICL was appointed). Are these grounds for ICL incompetence? The Judge appeared to be making a note about this. Is he obliged to conduct inquiries into these issues when brought to his attention? It's been over a week since the mention and the latest family court orders have not been uploaded on the portal (they've always been on there within a couple of days previously) which causes me to suspect something is going on behind the scenes due to the delay. Any ideas? Thank you.
