I have a mate whose ex is refusing him extra time with the kids. When he asked for an extra night, she said nope. Then she said he can only have 3 nights a fortnight, when he previously had 4. Madness. She won't mediate, just refused to show. So he has the certificate. He earned about $25 000 last year. So is Legal Aid an option? And if I help him with the paperwork to file an application to family court, what sort of costs is he likely to incur? He has walked away from the relationship with debt... She kept all the household appliances / furniture, etc., but he has the credit card debt. He ain't that worried about that bit, but the point I'm making is he is broke. So we need to know what the likely expenses of self-representing are gonna be before we even consider making the application. Any thoughts?
