Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
Yes you are allowed to represent.
If its a small claim - its a given you are allowed to represent.
If its a fast track or multi track trial then you must seek permission of the Judge before the hearing
You dont need to make a formal application on form n244 or anything, you simply ask before the hearing.
You should also ask the other side to see if they object, it is unlikely but you should ask.
But generally the Judge should let you, although it is not guaranteed.
Can I clarify anything for you about this today at all?
just literally walk over to the judge before the hearing or call the clerk ahead of time?
ok - v clear
