SRL Friendly Barristers - NSW - PLS Help:

Ok monaro and conan i owe you both an appology, please accept.
Conan said
Realistically a good look around the site would have shown there was a very specialist organization for SRLs and I m surprised you did not bother to apply for membership? The great advantage is to keep your material away from Googling eyes.
 I have been looking and reading everything but i cant find the organization you mean.
I thought i did apply for membership to something on this site, it was the SRL thing. Is that the one you mean?
My only deeper issues are frustration, mostly with the complexity of the legal system and injustice.
I edited my comments made under frustration. Im working night shift. Awake all day on computer and phone with what i felt was to no avail. Thought i was doing ok till yesterday. Anyway over it now, had 7 hrs sleep in 4 days, the 1 hr sleep before work last night helped. Just trying to meet an ever decreasing deadline.

Monaro said "Attitudes as your's are certainly unproductive" yea i realise that, got nothing done last night, at most times we all let off some steam. sorry if i offended you. ive edited post. dont wanna look hostile. 

Im only asking if anyone can give me direction, like where i can find assistance.

SRL Friendly Barristers - NSW - PLS Help:

I am sure you know how complex the family law system is and that is why i am asking for help. I have no other option as i can not afford a solicitor. I have nothing now so realisticly why would i put all this effort in and then just get railroaded again by lying cheating solicitors. That is the only reason i am a SRL. Without help or real advice i now realise i will get nowhere.

SRL Friendly Barristers - NSW - PLS Help:

I didnt know they would do that.
In that case is there any solicitors or barristers on the Gold Coast that would help me with my appeal. I have excellent grounds but dont want to stuff up. I have been working so hard on it, read millions of other cases and think i have most things covered but really need assist to get advice, look over or to write for me. I have called everyone i can for assistance but im at dead end now. I dont want to (out of impoverishness) but will pay for time consumed. Then when i sue my old solicitor there may be even more money in it for you. I have some excellent grounds for that also.

Or can anyone recommend someone?

Help please….ASAP

A rant about the CSA:

I too "dont have a problem with paying child support" but I never thought of it that way before. Your so right D4L.

Another issue is that the government is supporting the custodial parent also.

My X gets more than my wage in pensions and concessions, yet she has a full time self-employed business.

Oh and don't forget the government gave away all that money prior to Christmas to all the custodial parents that we did not see our 24% care share of.

Let's vote them in again!

Solicitors, professionals?, whose best interest?:

Thanks for email, i did what you suggested, and i checked out the law society, they will take complaint. Ill leave that low on the list of things to do. i have it all documented. Have to appeal to decision first, before its too late. Looking up grounds at the moment, even tho i feel i have plenty i have to find one that will be accepted.

What rules / laws do the federal magistrates go by? Because it seems like they use both family laws and federal magistrates laws. Thats why im having trouble finding out to what i can appeal.

Solicitors, professionals?, whose best interest?

 I really need help / advice as i am going to try and SRL or atleast fight injustice, even if it gets me nowhere. If i lose more its ok because i have lost everything and now looks like im going to lose my unit as well. My solicitor has let me down, he promised the world until he decided to help the other party win by manipulating the outcome of the case. He wrote my affidavit and lodged it without my reading or signing it. He has left out the most important parts of my claims. He had the case decided on the weighting of affidavits and allowed the other party to use an affidavit and financial statement written 12 months prior. I advised him i had proof that the other parties affidavit and financial statements were all lies. He advised me to put my money from settlement into the other parties solicitors trust account. He has billed me and i asked him for a beakdown of costs, of which i am disputing. He even has the hide to charge me an advocacy fee, no way was he acting as my advocate. I am sure he is applying for the courts to allow him to get his money from the trust account. A man with papers came to my work, i work shift work and he knows i wouldnt be there. He will not talk to me, will not reply to my phone calls or letters. I feel so betrayed, like this was his intent from the start. I was asking the court to change the orders due to a change of circumstances. After i lost the case he told me we needed to go into damage control and pay the other party whatever they were asking for in their costs claim. I sacked him ofcourse. He notified the courts of ceasing to act and i was sent the copy the day before i was due to appear in court. (His secretary let that date slip out to me.) The ceasing to act form asks for him to write the next date for appearance to court (as in claim for costs) and it was left blank, obviously hoping the other party could have it decided by their friend/collegue the magistrate without me being present. The same magistrate that told me $30,000 was not worth fighting over, thats all i was getting. The same magistrate that decided i had no grounds to ask for a change in orders. The same magistrate that did award them extremelly inflated costs. Over half my money. The same magistrate that was happy i would not be in any financial difficulty if i was to lose my unit.

I dont know where to start so i better handle one thing at a time.

1 I need to appeal the decision against my claim to have the orders changed.

2 I need to appeal the decision to pay costs.

3 I need to complain to someone about my solicitors ethics, and oppose his payment.

4 I need to have the other solicitor charged with contempt or something, allowing the X to lodge untrue statements and much more. Everything he has done he has done underhanded. Including getting the csa involved in what we were working out quite fine without them.

5 I probably need to do more but dont yet know what.

Am i bitter? Yes. Am i angry? Yes. I know i am emotional but this has gone on for 5 years. I had a family until solicitors were involved. I have been suicidal. I have struggled every week with what i earn and pay to C$A. I am a salary and wage earner, my X has her own bussiness that she states earns her minimal to no pay. I have been alienated from my kids. I have never told them anything about their mother or the court cases. Yet she has told them everything. To her advantage ofcourse. I have been consistently doubted and overcharged by the C$A, even though i have proof against the X's claims. Sorry not the right place to vent. I feel that i am receiving injustice every where i turn. So i gotta fight for my rights. Please any suggestions.
