Good afternoon all. A bullet point summary of my situation followed by a couple of legal questions for anyone who may be able to help clarify a few things. Wife abducted and retained our two children in the UK in Sept 14. Both children were returned three months later via the Hague Convention. Wife has now also returned to Australia and has a law firm working on an international relocation ( custody of children). Both children have stated openly and to the court they wish to stay in Australia. They are 14 and 10 years old. Both children live with me and spend alternate weekends with their mother who is now living downstairs in the same property. I am self representing. Her family lawyers are very 'hands on' and I receive a steady stream of letters from them on a variety of topics. I am well aware that they are attempting to bully me and leverage my lack of knowledge around the legal processes. I have been instructed to provide full financial disclosure as per the Family Law Rules 2004 and I have provided those documents that I have and am working on securing those I don't. My legal questions are: Do I need to respond to the ongoing list of questions they are putting to me to clarify the documents they have? I have asked them to provide documents relating to my wife's financial situation but they have not responded. Can they just ignore my requests? They have subpoenaed ( subpoena) my company for salary and contract information and we have a hearing this week. Why is there a hearing in relation to this? I have a second hearing this week as they have put in an application to expedite the final orders related to relocation. They have cited the fact my wife has a job offer in the UK starting in Sept as the reason for the application. Do I have to defend this or should I just go with with what the court says? I would assume there are many more urgent cases that would need to be heard sooner. I can't afford legal representation and yet she is spending vast amounts. Is there anyway I could be held liable for half her costs? Thanks in advance and I'm hope this site will be a help as a self representing litigant. Would be great to get in touch with anyone who is in a similar family law situation as it can be a lonely place taking on this by yourself. Thanks in advance.
