Yes, I would like to wait longer. It's not a problem.
That is okay. I was hoping for a solicitor who deals with higher education issues, if that is of any help.
I look forward to your reply,
Could you ask Clare - Family Solicitor, who answered my last question on matters dealing with son's education? Her ID is clairep80.
She may be able to help herself or recommend the best trail to take.
I look forward to your reply.
That is great news!
Yes, will wait. It's not a problem.
It was Student Finance England that were late, but it is amalgamated through UCAS. When you apply via the college, you complete your application in class with supervision of your tutor. I was not late applying. The application for UCAS was completed in December 2011.
Not until January 2013!!
Once I received a lump sum of money £1179.00, I did pay back £300.00, but I was so worried I kept hold of everything. Bear in mind my weekly allowance to get to college and maintenance calculated to at least £90.00 per week. Also, there were issues with regard to the payments for my childcare commitments. The childcare providers had to wait up to twelve weeks to be paid! The debt of £1383.00 was the payment for my two childcare providers for the first academic term.
Also, Student Finance would request duplicate information with regard to the childcare grant application (CCG) on numerous occasions, whilst I was trying to study. So there was always a delay with childcare payments. They are to this day still asking for the name of my son - as if they don't know what that is. I've taken copies of the CCG forms sent back in January 2014, where I have stated my child's name, so all these requests are unecessary.
I hope this explains the problems.
