"TBH, I wouldn't trust any solicitor. In short, just after my son was born in June 2010, I was arrested for various ''allegations'' and ended up with a 4 year restraining order. No previous before this as a gentleman of good character. After a few days of sentencing, I got a Facebook message from my so called previous partner, which says, ''I'm sorry for the lies and allegations my mum made me do it so her side would stick, we only wanted you to do things our way, please forgive me for this''. Now, tried to inform the so called solicitors of this, and also at least 2 police stations in person in Manchester and also a different police force in another area as I have since moved from many miles Manchester, but guess what, they don't want to know and are making it very difficult for me. Also in addition to this a number of other messages from my previous partner which is basically admittance to ''perjury'', and also because the arresting officer on the night of my arrest is still to this date a sergeant within greater Manchester police, who actually booked me in on the night of my arrest. My previous partner later admitted to this and that this was all pre planned and pre meditated. ''Why do you think Chxxx was on duty that night at the police station, to ensure the allegations would stick''. Apart from being wrongly advised by the solicitors to also ''Admit'' to these offences, for which is also unlawful, (Human rights act Schedule 1, Part 1, Article 2, Article 6, Right to a fair trial). The solicitor said '' Probably get told to not do it again and a small fine, nothing more''. Oh, how wrong where they. Also, after sentencing, when I finally saw the statements given by my previous partner, I would like to know how I did some of these things, especially at the time and date I was supposed to have done something, when I was over 200 miles away at my own father’s funeral. I have tried to make the solicitors and police aware of this, but, they just don't want to know. I have had very little contact with my son since he was born, and bit by bit, I have been studying various legal avenues, but, I most certainly NOT ALLOW, a solicitor to act on my behalf. If you can, go and study the legal system and how it works. There are various ''Jurisdictions'' within the courts of the UK, but, you do have to be very cautious and careful, especially when you are perhaps ''Advising'' A Judge on how they should perhaps be doing their job and to the legislation, act's or governance to which you are applying. I have a mountain to climb, I cant yet see the top, but, on the other side is my son. I have been climbing this mountain for many years, and hopefully within the next year or so once I have gathered enough information and knowledge, I will reach the top of the mountain, and there will be my son. Good luck and god bless everybody."
