Hello, thank you for the question.
You really do need a lawyer for this because if you're convicted it will make it very difficult for you to fix the family law issues.
If you own property but have low income you can still apply for Legal Aid, perhaps you'll qualify for a certificate on a repayment plan. If that doesn't work then borrow some money against the home.
If you've been to court, I assume that you got your disclosure package and your crown screening form. Read over the disclosure carefully and make note about what you don't agree with. Then take it to a lawyer to review and look at defences to the charges.
Yes, she's not following the agreement and that's likely a mitigating factor but it's not a defence. Your lawyer and the judge will say that if there are family law disputes then you take it up in family court.
What else about this would you like to discuss?
You've seen what I wrote by now, I assume. Is there anything else about this matter you'd like to discuss with me?
