The court has awarded in favour of the Claimant. The claimant is not in a position to represent herself. I understand that I will need a doctor to confirm that the Claimant is unfit to follow through with enforcing the judgement.
I have found form n235 'Certificate of suitability of litigation friend'. Is this what I should complete and attach a doctors statement?
So I presume form n235 is not appropriate?
Thanks for the information
The District Judge allowed me to become the Claimant’s McKensie friend and in a letter stated with regards ***** *****:
“ ………………………… who according to our records is acting on behalf of the claimant Mrs Hilda Customer ………”
With this I presumed I was OK to ‘act’ on behalf of the Claimant. Now worried that what I have done is wrong and I should have done this through first becoming a Litigation Friend.
The situation is that the courts have found in favour of the Claimant and as the claimant is 100 years of age frail and just not up to the paperwork I have progressed matters 'acted' on the claimant's behalf. Does this make the judgement null and void?
There is a date set for the Defendant to attend court for questioning and so I think I will let things ride.
Am I right that if the Defendant is successful with an appeal based on the Litigation Friend status basis that I just start again with the claim process and all is not necessarily lost?
Thank you again for your help.
