Ask a Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
For now please let me know at what stage proceedings are please?
I sent back the court documents including the questionnaire to the Court, 2 weeks ago, I sent copies to the opponents as requested. last week i received the copy of the opponent's solicitors questionnaire ( mentioning the amount of witnesses they have and the refusal to go to the small court/ as it was initially suggested by the court themselves. So far I wait for the next step to be taken , by the Court I guess? to give a date for the D day of court day.
dear Alex, I did not receive any answer from you? just a question? the system asks me to rate your service....
Has the matter been allocated to track yet please?
I think the messages are system generated
no I dont think it is allocated to track, I have received nothing, is it possible I can contact the Court still? how could I do this?
You need to apply to amend your claim and include a counter claim
You need to do this asap
ok, what is the process you think the quickest to amend a counterclaim?
You need to complete form N244
There is a Court fee of £50 to pay
You need to set out your counter claim so the Judge can see it
The Judge will then consider whether to allow your counter claim
to set it out, do I need to put specific figures? or elements of proof?
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
Not proof at this stage
yes please, it is so important, I appreciate
Just set out what you have lost and when
So everyone knows the case you are saying
There is no evidence at this stage
all right, basically , this is the form N244 which matters..
do you think that the claimant with the CFA can have to pay something if he looses?
Yes he would be liable for your costs if you win
that is good to know, because the solicitors have intimated me so much about this CFA, that I thought a counterclaim was not useful
Yes its N244 that matters, you need to make a formal applicatsion
No, if you have a valid counter claim you are entitled to bring it
Does that help?
yes alex , it does,
just to make sure, I can download this N244 oonline ? and send it to the Court with the Court case number? should it delay the Court case?
Yes you download it, fill it out and send it to the Court with £50
ok , that is great, I will do this on Monday!
Great. Can I help with anything else today?
I see the form in front of me, i will print it and fill it. At this stage I do not need to give a figure of compensation?
like for example claiming a financial loss of 50K?
No. But when you send in your draft claim you need to include numbers or a valuation
Ie under £10,000
Between £10,000 and £25,000
Or over £25,000
You need to make sure you say one of those 3
I see the form in front of me.. it does not state any of these 3 possibilities?
No, this is a form for an application
( from the link you sent me)
But you need to put one of these
ok I will put this in the free text section then?
Set out your claim and say the value is whatever it is
Can I clarify anything else?
ok, great ,I think I get it. And after , do you think I should receive a new questionnaire from the court?
Yes hopefully. But do this asap
ok; great, thanks a lot
Does this answer the question for you?
yes it does thanks
I represent myself in the Court, I hope that will do
