Hi fellow bub hubbers,
DP and I sought legal advice last week while waiting for the mediation conference in regards to getting custody of his 9yo daughter who had been asking to come live with us. We spoke to her mum about it and she stopped all contact for the past month. Last week the solicitor told us that we don't have a winnable case as the court will say nothing has happened to warrant taking miss M away from her current living arrangements. We found out on Sunday night that dp's ex's house burnt down and she still hasn't contacted him to let us know. Luckily the police were able to find out that info for us. We contacted the solicitor yesterday and she said we now have grounds to file for emergency custody to the courts. We picked up the papers today and the solicitor wants a $10k deposit and it's going to cost us $44k in total. We are now kind of stuck between a rock and a hard place as miss M is worth fighting for but we just ant afford that kind of money as we are literally just about to start building our house and neither of us can get legal aid.
