Hi
Thank you for your question.
My name is Clare
I will do my best to help you but I need some further information first.
What is the nature of the hearing and why are you seeking an adjournment?
Clare
Customer: replied 3 years ago.
It is a final hearing and I do not have any representation as my legal aid was cut. They have only given me two weeks notice. Can I ask for more time to prepare and how do I do that

Hi
Why has the Final Hearing been listed so quickly - usually the pressure on Court time means that it is listed months in advance?
Clare
Customer: replied 3 years ago.
I don't know, I only found out about it today, his barrister says it is urgent as a year has passed since my daughter saw him
Expert:  Clare replied 3 years ago.
Hi
Is the lack if time to prepare the only reason you need an adjournment?
