Hi Clare, good news. Ex brother has given a written signed authorisation that the sale of the property money to be transferred in my account or my soliciotors account. But I also wanted the conveyancing solicitor to do the undertaking and to give a date when the money be paid.
My solicitor will adjourn the hearing for another month she won't close the case. Just in case same issue starts again.
What do you think?
Asma
Expert:  Clare replied 2 years ago.
Excellent news - and good tactics by your solicitor
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

Hi Clare, yes even I did not think about that could she adjourn the hearing.she has been extremely supportive and she's been very understanding. She knows there's a chance we will get an outcome that's why she hasnt give up. Another solicitor would have given up.

I give her credit she done and is continuing to do a good job

Hi Clare, I hoped she could deal with children matter but it would not be on legal aid. Money would be worth spent on if she had taken my children's case

What do you think?

She is very competent

Asma

Expert:  Clare replied 2 years ago.
sadly money is always an issue
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

Hi clare, it would be money spent worth if there was chance of success

Asma

Expert:  Clare replied 2 years ago.
I don't think it would make a difference and you need your money for other things
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

Hi clare would I get legal aid? Do you think I could with a psychiatric assessment?

Asma

Expert:  Clare replied 2 years ago.
I fear it is unlikely
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Hi Clare, I think I asked you new question. I didn't think I might need an assessment?
Asma
Expert:  Clare replied 2 years ago.
I will look at it
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Hi Clare, I have family and friends support but they all reside Walsall. How can I demonstrate that I have good support network?
Asma
Expert:  Clare replied 2 years ago.
That is a matter of explaining who is currently supporting you and how that will continue
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

Hi Clare, my siblings are residing walsall. But in birmigham I have relatives and community support eg mosques for Asian women, also support anawim women's centre and shelter housing

Will these organisations be useful?
