Correct Steps

Postby biscuitqueen » Wed Jun 12, 2013 12:02 pm

Hi everyone,
My daughter and her ex partner are in the middle of fighting for full custody of my grandson and they have just exchanged witness statements ect as they are representing themselves. My daughter asked me to look through her ex partners statements she has received but Im not sure Im allowed too and I dont want to do anything that will lead to trouble. Also if you do write a witness statement do you have to attend the court hearing? Sorry to sound dim but I dont want to cross any lines that I shouldn't.

Hi sorry but you are on the wrong forum this is the site for families raising the children of relatives. But to answer your question no you should not read the statements as they are court papers and should not be shown to anyone else. Should you need to make any statements the court or your daughters solicitor will ask you. It would only be seen as ganging up anyway and may discredit you at a later date.
