Yes it is a County Court Claim
The Court Order says
4. The Defendant to send to the Court and to the Claimant his Witness Statement by 4pm 19 March 2013
5. The Claimant to have permission to respond by Witness Statement and to file and serve [can't read the word it is handwritten!!!] and any other Witness evidence upon which she tends to relyby 4pm 2nd April 2013
No it is regarding the sale of two houses ....the Defendant has paid all the monies owing to his parner she wants her name off the mortgages but he has not sold the houses yet
Yes both parties attended Court ....would it be better for me to contact my sons' Barrister?
Yes my sons ex partner had spent extensive costs £11.500 and my son had his Barrister just for the day because of costs
The first house had got to point of sale as ordered from a previous Hearing and his partner refused to sign unless he had her name removed from the second house? [which he lives in] so the house sale fell through .....this is why the Case went back to Court.
My son was advised to make a Statement regarding the sale
headed WITHOUT PREJUDICE SAVE AS TO COSTS and his former partners new husband is going to make her Statement on the date as advised ....two weeks later! can you explain why? please
Would you advise my son to get Legal help?
his ex partner and her new husband obstructed sale of the house once? as she wouldnt sign? apparently couldnt be forced to as there was no Plan of Sale then they tried to get an Order for him to auction BOTH houses, they want to ruin him!
My sons' ex partner the one that left with their 18 month old child ...they had been together for 14 years
My son has a small painting and decorating business and obviously hasnt got the money to waste on large Legal Fees he instructed a Barrister last time but just for the prep... the day before and in Court on the day but this Case has been dragging its heels ...he acted for himself before but his ex partner and her new husband have spent £68,000 apparently on fees!!!
Just your advice about what he should do next please would be highly regarded and appreciated.
