Hi and welcome

You are going to have to try mediation first, as this is a requirement now before going down the court route - take a look at www.nfm.org.uk

It's also worth looking at the sticky topics at the top of the legal section here on representing yourself in court as that will give you and idea of the procedures.

As actd has said, you will need to attend mediation first, if you are on benefits or a low income you will be entitled to funding for this service.

Try not to worry too much about your history, if you have been clean for five years the courts will see that as historic. Your health issues will be looked at as the courts have to be sure that there are no safeguarding concerns regarding your child.

It might help you to attend a Families Need Fathers meeting in your area, you will get legal advice and support from other members. Here's a link to their website where you'll find details of meetings nationally.

Best of luck

Not legally trained... just plenty of experience and common sense!
