Hi everyone, I've asked a question here before and it was answered beautifully! I'm writing a novel that involves a Supreme Court case as a major part of the book. I do have a few more as I'm close to writing the case in court. It's a civil case where a child is suing his parents over some childhood problems. I don't want to give too much away, but it would possibly be a bit of a stretch of a case, then again, maybe not.... I have done the claim forms and have a court date written, it is to start the day after a public holiday, so a Tuesday. Q1, would the opposing lawyers have meetings to try and negotiate a deal before they start court? Q2, my court date is 6 months from time of filing, is that about right? Q3, what is required to be disclosed by each party, i.e. Witnesses, evidence, etc? Q4, the child is suing both parents, but one has decided to settle without court, and is rebuilding a relationship with the child. Can that parent give evidence against the other? (They have been divorced for a few years. Thanks for any assistance with this.
