Hi all

I was summoned to the courts. It was a duty matter and listed next day so I didn’t have time to get legal advice.

I was unrepresented .
Before we started the judge gave us time to negotiate. . We agreed on consent orders.

Final orders were made.
I tried to comply with orders but I realised later that the lawyers had lied to me during the mediation process. I feel that I can no longer comply for reasons very important to me.

The plaintiffs lawyers are now threatening to file contempt of court.

My question:
What should I do? Can I file anything before a contempt is filed so I am not in contempt or do I wait until they file and defend myself. I can’t afford a lawyer.
