Ask a Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Hello my name is Alex and I will help you with this. Please note that I am a working Solicitor and may be on and offline as I have to attend Court and meet with clients, even at weekends. As such you may not get an instant response when you reply as this is not an ‘on demand’ live service, but rest assured I will be giving your question my immediate attention upon return. There is no need to wait here, you will get an email when I reply.
What is it you would like to know about this please?
I have to reply to day as the Order dated 14/02/14.
Need best wording to have Order set aside.
Adam is diagnosed as having Asperger's Syndrome Disorder. The Order requires Adam to provide absence of competence
under the Mental Health Act or act for himself unless I can have the Order Set Aside with this Application.
Asperger's was enough for the Home Sec to stop the Americans from extraditing. Is it enough to warrant honouring his request
that his parents act for him? The entire process is to delay and confuse issues. City were told by EP Assessment in 20005
but we only discovered in 2008. complaint brought proof of delivery of Assessment to City in 2005. All conspirators to deny services to Adam have left City. Failed to obtain legal aid support, so doing it the hard way. Until March 14th for Adam to fill forms
I am using covering letter to ex[lain that papers arrived today.
Does he have any report saying he does not have capacity?
No, only Diagnosis ans Assessments - latest 2012 - to obtain 3rd year funding,
So on what basis are you trying to set aside the Order requiring him to provide proof or otherwise he can not act?
That Asperger's Syndrome denies Adam the ability to respond as needed to meet the conditions in any Court. It was accepted that he could not cope with normal College life. Finding Westminster very difficult. Has not attended this term yet. Quote "Need suitable mentors" Very bright but volatile. Valerie (mum) diagnosed with MS last year, pressure is getting to her
But you dont have anything saying he lacks capacity?
Relative, If Adam does not engage, nothing to be done, condition driven response. No guarantee that he would get to Court.
But you said there is no psychiatric report saying he does not have capacity?
Once I could get his feet on the bedroom floor, it was all OK. could not move his legs.
Only that he has Asperger''s Syndrome disorder. Each person is different. Adam is Adam. Had to have Valerie as an anchor during Statutory Assessment, could not engage with EP John Hutchings, No problem with Dr Tanna during diagnostic process..
Unless there is a Doctor report saying he does not have capacity then he is deemed that he does.
Therefore unless you provide proof then the application will fail.
You must get a report saying he does not have capacity
If you do not then it will fail.
I realise this is not the answer you want and certainly not the one I want to give you but I have a duty to be honest
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
Can i ask the Court to await proof?
Yes you need to make an application for that.
Using form n244
But you would need to outline why you have not taken steps so far and what steps you have taken now.
OK Thank you Alex

Are you assuming Adam to be in reasonable health? Physically reasonable, emotionally, unable to attend lectures or meetings since early December '13. is this "health" issue not covered by Common and EU Articles 6 and 8?
Article 6 and 8 are prescribed by law. The Court will need to be satisfied that he has capacity to conduct proceedings.
He can of course appoint a Solicitor to act on his behalf.
But if the court is not satisfied about his capacity then a report can be obtained.
But this is, as I have said above to determine whether he has capacity under the Mental Health Act
If he does - he will continue to act
If he does not - then a litigation friend or official solicitor can be appointed.
But just because he is not well does not mean he does not have capcity.
Does this clarify matters?
failed to obtain legal aided support. Withdawal is recognised as danger for Asperger's. No telling how long it takes to emerge. Will Dr letter be adequate proof to Court? does not Common Law right to have illness considered override procedures?
No - you need a proper medical report saying that he does not have capacity
No common law does not over rule statue law
The Mental Health Act lays out the requirements and you need a proper psychiatric report to confirm that he does not have capacity
The court will expect that.
I realise this is not the answer you want and certainly not the one I want to give you, but I have a duty to be honest
Can I clarify anything else for you?
Did my reply reach you?
No I did not see anything else?
You need to complete form N208
The Court will then list the matter for a hearing and if contested make directions for the matter to be heard.
Then at the final hearing a Judge will make a decision
You are asking for an Order that the decision made to remove you is invalid because they did not follow proper process
The Court fee to issue the claim is £175 unless you qualify for fee remission
I did not get your last reply - no
please advise if you believe advice adequate to complete N244 as asked for? You claimed experience, Did I miss something?
You want to apply to set aside a previous order requiring Adam to provide proof he does not have capacity, that's right?
I said that without any evidence to say that he does not have capacity I think your application would fail.
I can give you the wording - but I would like you to be aware I do not think it would succeed without the evidence.
