Hi... I am self-representing in the Family Court and am fighting an international relocation application to have my two children aged 15 and 11 sent to the UK. I was successful in having them both returned home to Australia from the UK in December/January via The Hague Convention and have managed to navigate things so far. The children have recently been assigned their own ICL and are both clear in their desire remain in Australia and I feel confident that it is very unlikely that the courts would allow the request for relocation. We have just been set a Case Management hearing for early Oct, a Family Report appointment for mid Oct and a trial date has been 'allocated to a judicial docket as third next case to be allocated' . (Not sure of exactly how this works if I'm honest.) This is a lot to keep up with whilst I am also working on the financial settlement and I think I now need to engage some legal advice but as I have both children living with me full time and am covering the costs of all mortgages etc, I don't have the funds to engage a firm full time. I was wondering if anyone has had any experience of engaging firms or individuals on an ad-hoc basis. Ideally I would like to have some kind of a 'pay as you go' arrangement whereby I could pay for a professional to review my situation at any given time and give some advice on what my next move should be. I'm fine in drafting my affidavits and the various documents but sometimes it's hard not knowing what legal options there actually are available to me. I'm hoping this is possible otherwise I'm a little short of options. Thanks in advance.
