Help With Court Applications
1. When applying to court you need to try mediation .
The current protocol that applies in the courts for someone who is applying for a court application is required to attend a Mediation Information Assessment (MIAM). This will give them the opportunity to learn more about the mediation process, talk about their situation in a confidential setting with a qualified mediator, and decide if it might be something that would be beneficial for them.
2. Court papers can be confusing and filling in them wrong can cause delays.
There are no fast track ways to get your court application through quickly, and it can be easy to panic especially at a time of heightened emotion. However, making a mistake when filling forms out for the court will likely cause delays. Delays mean that it will take longer to process your application and you will have to fill another form out with the correct details.
The form C100 is an application under the Children Act 1989 for residence and contact. Form A is for a basic disclosure. Form E is for detailed disclosures whereby there is complex financial issues, /pagetemplate/assets/ or there is no knowledge of ex-partner’s finances. It is a more rigours process and a longer form. When filling out a divorce application a copy of your marriage certificate will be needed because you need to file it with the court when you begin your divorce petition. Don’t worry if you can’t find or have lost your marriage certificate, you can order a copy from the General Register Office.
