Thank you for your question. To Introduce myself I am a sydney based Solicitor and will do my best to provide you with relevant information to assist you.
there is a hearing this friday for the Application in a case re: property that i recieved yesterday
there have been several hearings regarding family matters the one in July is for 2 days and is the final hearing
i would assume it is a directions hearing but this hearing has nothing to do with the trail in Mid July, this hearing is because of the application in a case submitted on the 4th of June regarding poperty settlement
the respondent has not filed any affidavit evidence as ordered to by COB yesterday parenting matters, this hearing i believe is an attempt to hijack the paranting matter
the respondent is seeking leave to be granted for the respondent to file an amended response to my initiating application regarding the children issues and to seek a variation of the property orders made last year
thanks, just one thing is it worth me submitting an application in a case asking the court to grant my initial pareanting application based on the respondent not conforming to the orders and submitting her affidavit evidence, i believe she cannot double dip and submit her evidence when she feels like it and i doubt the court will allow her to submit her evidence leading up to the court date in July
as there is strict time limits that the court has imposed with evidence and a setting down fee which i must pay next month
in short will the court hear what she has to say without submitted evidence as i believe she cannot submit on the day
thank you very much, the hearing in July is a final hearing so hopfully the court will not allow her to submit late evidence we shall see either way i will ask the court to strike it out, they have had plenty of time to submit thier evidence but where more intersted in Property and Money than dealing with the matter presently before the courts being the children and parenting
thanking you again
