I have Family court orders that are current my ex partner…

Customer Question
Hi, I have Family...

Hi, I have Family court orders that are current my ex partner and i go back to court on the 4th of December. Our children live with me. I have sole responsibility for medical regarding our disabled son but it is shared responsibility on education. My question is if my ex and i can not come to a agreement regarding special schooling for our son which was recommended by a specialist what happens ? Our children have a Independent children lawyer.

Lawyer's Assistant: Because education law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?

We are in Queensland

Lawyer's Assistant: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?

I had legal aid funding for a lawyer but i am now self representing for our next apperance

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?
