    Hi all,

    Does anyone have any opinion for someone representing themselves?

    I am the respondent in the matter and I have not received any material from other parties including the ICL to prepare for the final trial.

    Cheers

    Hi Cherie

    If it is a Family Law matter you would have trial directions from the court that tell you what to do.

    Do you have those?

    Yes I do. Being the respondent I am unsure what to do as I do not have any affadavits or evidence from the other parties.

    Are you sure it is a trial?

    If so, you should have all the previous court documents from the other parties served on you.

    It does not make sense.

    If you need legal help, please email, [email protected].

    Thank you.
    Yes is is definitely trial.
    I have got all previous documents. However to my knowledge they are irrelevant as evidence and I have not received any trial material.

    What sort of costs would this incur?
    I am representing myself as I cannot afford a lawyer.

    We can give some advice at a discounted rate, but it will not cost anything to send us the orders.
