Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
For now please let me know what is the value of the claim?
61500 in fact
Ok - you will need to get permission from the Judge.
The contract can't be assigned only if the contract allows for it
But bearing in mind it is in Court then this would be too late at this stage.
But you can represent your wife if the Court gives permission.
And yes, you can be a Litigant in person
She is my fiancee - does that change anything?
we do have a cohabitation agreement
You still need the Courts permission
The answer is the same.
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
what kind of application or form is required?
You just ask at Court.
at the next hearing - or in writing beforehand?
At the hearing
Will a court normally grant such a request?
You can put the other side on notice and see if they object
Depends on the Judge really.
Usually Judges are quite accomodating
Can I clarify anything else for you?
so this is something that we simply ask the judge at the next hearing? The judge indicated to the respondent that he really needed to to have a lawyer. But that is not necessary - even for multi-track?
Its ideal, but not necessary
Better to have a lawyer, but if you don't need the hearing can still go ahead
ok - thx
