Writing a Statement for Family Court

Writing a statement for family court proceedings involves several key steps and considerations:

  1. Consultation with Solicitors: Seek legal advice and consultation with experienced family law solicitors who can guide you on what to include in your statement and ensure it aligns with your case strategy.

  2. Content and Format: Your statement should be concise, factual, and organized. It should address relevant issues, provide evidence where necessary, and adhere to the prescribed format.

  3. Clarity and Objectivity: Use clear and concise language, avoiding emotional or inflammatory language. Be objective and focus on the facts of the case.

  4. Relevance: Include only information that is directly related to the case and supports your position. Irrelevant details can detract from your statement’s effectiveness.

  5. Timeline: Present the events or facts in a chronological order to create a coherent narrative for the court.

  6. Supporting Evidence: If applicable, include supporting evidence, such as documents or witness statements, and reference them in your statement.

  7. Legal References: If relevant, cite applicable laws or precedents that support your arguments.

  8. Review and Editing: Carefully review and edit your statement to ensure accuracy, clarity, and consistency.

Questions You Might Have (FAQs)

General Quesitons

A statement for family court serves to present your case, provide relevant information, and support your position in legal proceedings.

Your statement should include factual information related to the case, an organized timeline, supporting evidence, and legal references if applicable.

Yes, experienced family law solicitors can provide guidance on writing an effective statement, ensuring it aligns with your case strategy and legal requirements.

Your statement should be concise, well-organized, and use clear language. It should adhere to the prescribed format for court submissions.

It is advisable to seek legal advice early in the process to ensure your statement is well-prepared and aligns with your legal strategy. Solicitors can assist you from the beginning of your case.

Financial Related

The process for negotiating a financial settlement can be done in two ways. Firstly, if financial matters are agreed upon between both parties a finance consent order can then be drafted and filed with the court alongside the relevant paperwork.

On the other hand, if matters are not agreed upon between parties and where there is a financial dispute regarding assets and finances, it would then be recommended to go through the court process of obtaining a financial order. This process is generally quite lengthy and consists of financial hearings and full financial disclosure from both parties. Once a settlement is agreed a final order will then be granted.

If Children Involved

If you have a genuine fear that your ex-partner will not return the children back to you or the UK where they are usually resident, we will make an emergency application with the Family Courts for a Prohibited Steps Order.

Unfortunately, grandparents do not have parental rights and therefore an application needs to be made to the court initially. You will need to ask the court for permission to make an application for contact under Form C100. Our team is on hand to support you through such cases.

If you have parental responsibility, our family team can make an application to the family courts requesting a contact arrangement.

Here at Wildings, we would guide you through the process, whilst ensuring that we obtain the best and most effective result for you.

In such cases, we would initially recommend mediation. Should matters continue to not be resolved, we would then advise you on what application should be made to the court to finalise arrangements.

About Your Safety

If you are in fear for your safety or have experienced either physical, verbal, emotional, or psychological abuse, control, coercion, harassment or threatening behaviour, we are able to make an ex-parte non-molestation order to protect you from the forms of harassment above.  Should there be an occupational dispute concerning property, we are also able to make an application for an occupation order.

It is essential for us to give you right guidance, please do not delay to take the first step and contact us!
