Anonymous Asked:

I'm preparing for my case conference, I don't have a lawyer, nor does she. The areas that we are disputing are Access, child and spousal support. Will all of these get address in the case conference. Do I get a chance to speak/deliver my case in the case conference? I've had shared access for the last year and a bit, but in the last 7 weeks she has decided to only allow me to see my kids every other weekend. Which I obviously don't want. I've asked the judge to grant access rights on my brief, will this get reviewed? Also, I've been reading a lot of how the judge decides access, etc, and it's all about the best interest of the child. When do they say NO to shared custody.

The point of a case conference is to canvass all issues with a judge and discuss issues of access support etc. You will have a chance to present your case - you have to file a Form 17A Case Conference Brief 7 days before the case conference which sets out your position on the issues. You must also file a Confirmation form 14C with the court confirming the case conference is going ahead at least 3 days before the court date. At the case conference, the judge will attempt to assist the two of you in trying to resolve some of the matters. If they cannot be resolved, you are permitted to bring a motion on the issues after the case conference is heard, if needed. The judge can make orders re disclosure etc. and procedural orders at the case conference but not normally substantive orders like changing the access etc. However, a judge may likely order some child support if none is being paid. You really should, if possible, speak to a lawyer about the process and have someone represent you.
