Hi,
I am the applicant - the adult child's mother, he is at university.My main problem with this is I can't find any examples or templates for a "trial plan" and am not sure how I should lay it out and what I need to put in it
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
My son and I have filed Affidavits & Form 13's
There are no witnesses as there are no relevant witnesses to call - I don't want to call my son as I don't want him to have to hear his father make excuses etc to try and get out of paying any money towards his support
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
I intend to argue that his father has the capacity to pay under section 66L of the Family Law Rules - he earns $88k per year, owns 2 4 bed properties, 2 boats, 2 cars

Hi, I am in West Australia
Solicitor: Patrick H., Lawyer replied 1 year ago
Ah, WA has a somewhat different court regime than the rest of the country and I don't believe there are any WA based lawyers on this web service, otherwise I would refer you to them.I would strongly suggest you contact the court registry. Whilst they cannot give you legal advice as to what you should say, they can advise you as to the appropriate forms to use and the matters you need to cover, as required by the court.The court ultimately decides how the trial will proceed, the document you are being asked to prepare is essentially for the purpose of assisting the court in making sure enough time is allocated to deal with your matter.Don't worry too much about getting the forms exactly right as the family court is reasonably tolerant of unrepresented parties making minor mistakes. I would also suggest you review both court website material, the court rules:http://www.familycourt.wa.gov.au/http://www.austlii.edu.au/au/legis/wa/consol_reg/fcr1998202/I trust the above assists.Good luck and please rate my answer.Patrick
