Customer: This inquiry is directed just to the solicitor SASH_Law, Ms. Lea, therefore, to be answered please just by her. Thank you ***** Hopefully you doing well.Today was the last day. Started to complete the cross exam on me by her barrister and closed with two questions from the judge, and all gone well for this. After that the barrister started to give her final submission statement and she tried her best to show me guilty by inviting always the judge to consider and adopt most of the allegations despite without any supported evidence, just on the own written words. When she finished, I was asked to give my final submission statement. I could reach everything I would tell the judge about it, but really the interepretor was not helpful as i tried some times to speak on my behalf. My concern as following: last two days i was fully calm down as normal, during my final submission today and due that interepretor was not able to translate exactly what said, I became a little bit nervous when I talked and the judge may noted that, would this effect me badly on his decision? On the other hand, during my presenting of one point that i do believe that the solicitor tried to illusion the court with it, I said that directly to the court and show me some reaction of not like it and asked me seriously move on to the next, later on I tried to explain that i didnt mean to critical the barrister, the judge kindly answered me i understand your position, again would this effect me badly?

By the end I declared to the judge as I did through last two days that I do confirm that the mother is a really good mother with the children and no one can be better than her to have the custody on children and I never ever despite her on the custody than more just to meet weekly my children, he answered me kindly again no worry I understand you position. By the end everyone had a final short word to thank each other and all did the same exempt the mother as she used this opportunity to thank him first following starting crying and asking him to give special consideration to her as an anxiet mother about her and children from me ... etc. Then the judge stopped her and finish the hearing
Customer

I don't think you being a bit nervous, or being asked to move on to the next thing by the judge, are detrimental to you. Being nervous is perfectly understandable, and the judge would expect you to be nervous and would not make any negative view from that. The judge is there to take all the information and make an assessment of who he thinks is telling the truth about the allegations. He will take into consideration everything over the past three days, not just the final submissions today, so don't worry too much.

It sounds to me as though the judge has a good handle on everything that is going on. You are clearly stating the mother is a good mother and the children should stay with her, and you just want to spend time with them. I think it is highly likely that you will be able to achieve this, but of course, we do have to wait for the judge to give his findings on the allegations made, which is what the fact finding has been all about. But even if some of the findings are made against you, it won't necessarily mean that you won't get contact.

In my experience, the court only stops contact in really serious cases where harm has already been caused to the children, and it doesn't sound like that is the circumstance that you are in.

Customer
Thank you really Lea for your feedback as really calmed down me. The judge really has done a good handle on everything that is going on and I could factually feel that even he tried many times to defense some points against the barrister when she try to use it as to make me guilty. Regarding your last paragraph, I would mention that during the mother's barrister presenting her final submission and before just finishing, the judge reminded her if she would mention or add anything regarding their new allegation of children sexual abuse that has been raised by the end of mother's cross exam on the first day and what category they would the judge consider it under?? she first failed to give any category exempt saying something against the religion, the judge insisted then to get from them a category to this new allegation, She asked the judge to let her talk on phone with the mother, he allowed her, and then she confirmed to the judge the mother would you consider it under the category of sexual abuse, then the judge ended her final submission. In your experience how this could be understood?

the mother then tried her best to convince the judge that a mental and sycological harm has been caused to the children.

From your explanation it seems to me the judge was just trying to get the barrister to establish the category of allegation the mother was saying this was. It is just so that when the judge gives his judgment he can clearly state what his finding on that point is. It is nothing to worry about - more that the judge wanted a clear statement as to what allegation the mother was actually making.

The whole point of the fact finding is to decide on the allegations - so it is natural the mother put forward her views, as you did yours. It is up to the judge to now decide on the balance of probability, what he believes happened.
