HOW TO REPRESENT YOURSELF IN FAMILY COURT - AN ESSENTIAL GUIDE - Representation of parents in the family court has long been the preserve of solicitors and barristers. If, as a parent, you were in conflict with the mother or father of your child and could not resolve the matter, one or either of you could take the matter to court and be represented by a solicitor via obtaining legal aid, which pays for your solicitors fees. However, over recent years accessibility to receive legal aid has become far more restrictive, which has lead to numerous parents finding themselves between a rock and a hard place. How to represent yourself in Family Court is 100-page comprehensive guide that will not only teach you the family court process, it will also provide you with a step-by-step guide to representing yourself in family court. For any parent who is required to attend a family court, this essential guide will teach them exactly what they need to know, and do, in order to succeed.
My name is Michael Watson and I have been a professionally qualified social worker for over twenty six years.
I have worked in a variety of social work positions, starting out as a generic social worker in the 1980's and going on to work in adoption and later on specialising in working with Children and Families.
Between 1986 and 1994 I worked for four different local authorities and then changed jobs to become what was then known as a Guardian Ad Litem for a number of years prior to the commencement of the Child And Family Court Advisory and Support Service (CAFCASS).
After Cafacass was established my job title changed to that of a self employed Children's Guardian, but the duties were very largely the same. Basically, for the past almost twenty years, I have been an expert in the court with regard to children and families.
Throughout my years as a social worker I have always been an aspiring writer.
Although prior to me writing my first book, all my earlier writing involved fiction. It was not until I went on a course late last year that I decided that I would put my considerable years of experience in the family court, including working with children and families and my writing skills together, to produce material that I hope will benefit a far wider audience.
My first book and one or two others in the pipeline will be focused on helping children, families and parents experiencing relationship problems. But don't be surprised if in the near future, you discover I'm also writing fiction too.
