I've kept track of the time I've spent on this case, filing out paperwork and the time filing it at the court.

Can somebody point me in the right direction on how to organize and present this to a judge as a self rep.

I've spent about 12 hours on it so far. How do I determine what hourly rate to attribute to this? I've heard $100/hr for self rep is acceptable but that seems high to me. I was thinking of just putting what I actually make per hour.

I just want to be ready to have something to present to the judge regarding costs if given the opportunity.

Thoughts?

Thanks

EDIT: just to confirm my ex never filed a case conference brief. I can't imagine this will go well for her tomorrow.

Perhaps refer (and cite) workingdad's case & costs award? He was self-represented.

Heading to court in a bit. I find it a bit challenging to know how this will go since the only paperwork she has filed in this matter simply states that she "disagrees"

I will be arriving prepared with the travel consent ready to sign if she so chooses. Otherwise I'll try and get a motion before Nov 1st since that's when my final payment for the trip is due.

Anyway. I'll let you all know how it goes.

Nothing got resolved today so we are moving forward with a motion.

DRO had many questions for her and not so many for me. He seemed satisfied will all my answers and not so satisfied with hers. Although he did say he couldn't really say which way it would go. That being said he flat out told her she cant go to motion with "I disagree", she needs to provide proof that going on this trip will harm their education.

She made many accusations about me to the DRO and he just ignored it. Although the funniest of them all was that I have blackmailed her into signing the previous travel consents. She forgot she signed the first one in front of the DRO (Exact same one). I brought that up and she had nothing to say to him about that.

Basically I'm a bully and I blackmail her into everything and I don't follow our court order.

That's my side... I'm sure she has another story to tell.

I've started the paperwork and looks like the motion will be next Friday.

Keep track of ALL of your time and be sure to ask for costs. Sorry you didn't get things resolved today.

At least you don't have to wait long for the motion.

They are no allowed to give out their email to parents.

I had to send in some documents and I asked if I could email then and they said no. So I had to fax them.

That's my main concern... They will absolutely not put it in writing so what's the point.

The other thing that concerns me is my ex is very close with the school and teachers. She's on Mat leave so she sees them almost everyday. So if I approach them they'll probably say something to her and all hell will break loose.
