TOPIC: Upset and gobsmacked

Upset and gobsmacked 1 month 2 weeks ago #186779

I am happy that my tribunal will be held in my home town, that is a huge worry off my mind for me. Will I be able to take a witness and will he be able to speak as well as me please?

Yes you can and they will be able to speak but it will be at the discretion of the Judge, I would expect them to be asked at the end of the hearing.

The HMCTS sent me a letter on 5th April saying they'd received my appeal and that they will make arrangements for my appeal to be heard.
They state on that letter that they have asked the DWP to prepare a written response to my appeal. All this I knew because of B & W, my question is, the 28 days for DWP to respond is up so how soon now until I hear something from the HMCTS please.

If you haven't received the DWP's "bundle" by Monday then give the TS a call for an update.

Hi Judy, sorry to jump in here on your post but I just want to wish you all the very best of luck with everything. I am upset for you judy, these people have no idea what life is like in this ''real'' world we live in day in day out. Fingers crossed for you. Take care.

Has this scenario ever happened (still no bundle today so Monday I will chase it up) that the DWP fail to respond to a tribunal appeal? And if so what would happen. (One can only hope).
