#13 Access to Justice

In the last few weeks events in my life have taken a few odd twists and turns.

A fortnight ago I knew next to nothing about the court and justice system. Now I know nearly enough to begin a law degree [hyperbole – but you get the picture]

Who would have thought that it would be possible for a judge to make a life changing judgement based on the grossly exaggerated statement of a vicious man without considering any evidence? Not me. But it can happen and has happened.

The legal aid cuts to family law cases that the government introduced last year have meant that access to justice is being severely restricted. People like myself can no longer afford to defend ourselves in cases where rash decisions based on misinformation have been made.

My children are suffering and I am suffering. There is no sense in this country anymore.
