Hello my name is XXXXX XXXXX 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.
Did you discontinue the claim or just stop progressing it please?
I discontinued the claim as I thought it was putting undue pressure on my ex when i discovered she was already on benefits and not in a position to pay as well as threatening no contact with our son.
Acrually I am not certain whether I discontinued or just stopped progressing it. Does it make a difference?
If you discontinued it then you can NOT start it again
This means if you issue again it will be struck out as an abuse of process
If you withdrew or discontinued then this will be the position
If you just stopped, ie did not progress the claim further rather than discontinue then you may be able to revive it if you make an application to the Court and convince a Judge to allow you to
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
How do I check whether I have withdrawn or discontinued my application. I simply cannot remember
