Preparing you for handling allegations
Fact Finding Hearings are used by the courts to help the judge decide whether allegations made by a party are true or not in family law cases. The different types of allegations can include physical abuse, sexual abuse, financial abuse, emotional abuse, psychological abuse, racial abuse, and controlling or coercive behaviour, as well as any other behaviour that you may have found abusive to you. The aim of a Fact Finding Hearing is to get to the truth, to progress contact with any children involved in a safe manner, and remove any risks of abuse towards them.
This course will teach you how to prepare thoroughly for a Fact Finding Hearing (whether you are the one making allegations or a victim of false allegations), as well as how to behave and what to do afterwards.
Giving you confidence and insider knowledge
Facing a Fact Finding Hearing can be a daunting prospect whether you’re the victim of untrue allegations or the one making the claims. It can also be a bit of a minefield if you’re representing yourself in court. Although I believe anyone can self-represent successfully, it’s really important to get some advice and support with preparing for a Fact Finding Hearing as making a mess of it can detrimentally affect your case.
18 years of experience helping people represent themselves in the Family Court
I’ve known for a long time that representing yourself in court is a viable option that doesn’t have to jeopardise your case. You just need some insider knowledge and thorough preparation. I’ve been where you are today and the process of representing myself in court inspired me to train as a McKenzie Friend and barrister so I could help others going through the same thing without the help of a solicitor. I’ve supported people for over 18 years now through both my courses and lectures, and personal services. I want you to come out of that courtroom feeling like you gave it your best shot.
Guiding you through
This course goes into Fact Finding Hearings in depth, with an example of a Scott Schedule to examine. We’ll go through each allegation in the example in detail and consider what evidence could be used to support or disprove them – depending on your position. You’ll also learn how to handle possible responses to allegations and how to prepare your statement.
One of the main benefits of the course is being able to prepare a defence against abuse claims if you’re self-representing and are the victim of unfounded allegations.
I’ve been where you are now – you can read more about my story here – so I know how it feels, but I also know that YOU CAN DO THIS.
Imagine how much more confident you’ll feel walking into that courtroom with all this knowledge behind you.
