This is a civil matter. The Claim number is ***** Time is ticking on and my fear is that our legitimate claim may be dismissed if, due to Mr. Garvey's illness, we do not appear in Northampton on the date specified. Mr. Garvey is in medical hands and should be able to testify within a few weeks. I myself am 86 years old and not fully conversant with all the facts.
I shall bookmark your profile.
Thank you so far, Alex. I do not understand your reference to Box 10.
Where is this box to be found?
I can obtain a medical referral, but am still not clear where I should send this, presu,able to the Court Manager, Northampton County Court. Would this be in a letter from ourselves (on our company headed notepaper), of must I send some official form. N.244 does not seem to fit our circumstances.
Excellent though your answers have been so far, especially about what I have to put into Box 10, perhaps I am exceptionally dim in not understanding all the other questions which are no doubt as clear as day to you.
1. To whom should I make out the cheque?
3.. What order am I asking the court to make? One of adjournment?
4. Have I attached a draft of the order I am applying for? I do not know.
5. At a hearing or without a hearing? Without a hearing for the adjournment?
6. How long will the hearing last? Do they mean to decide whether togrant adjournment?
7. Details of fixed trial date? Presumably September 16th, 2015, at 12.00 noon?
8. What level of judge?
9. Who should be served with this application? I do not know, and hope you can tell me.
10. Box 10, you have already told me.
Yes, thank you, Alex. All these details help enormously. One final thing:
"If you have spoken with the other side and they agree, that will help. If you have include that document when you send it to Court."
No, we are in no communication with the other side, who in fact hopes we will drop the entire proceeding, so that he will get away with the monies of which he has cheated us. Does this make a problem?
Yes, thank you, ***** ***** am just about to rate your service as excellent.
BUT I would like to print off the form N 244, and fill it in by hand, but they do not seem to allow me to do this without signing up to some service.
Is this standard practice?
Dear Alex,Thank you for asking, but, as a result of the valuable advice you gave me, I was able to complete Form 244 in a satisfactory mannner, and I have now sent it off to the Court Manager in Northampton. Only one thing gives me a little pause, and that is that I was unable to make contact with my associate's G.P., but I did obtain and send in a medical report from a prominent neurologist who knows his medical background and has treated him in a similar situation. If you think this will not be satisfactory, please do not tell me as I would rather not know, but will await a decision from the court whether they will grant an adjournment.You may be sure I will keep your contact details by me - do I actually have them? - for any future problems which may arise.Yours sincerely,,Adrian
Dear Alex,Good to hear from you. I agree, you were most helpful in our recent dealings obtaining an adjournment with the Northampton Crown Court, when one of my partners was ill and could not attend on the prescribed date. He has recovered now, and the case has been referred to the Small Claims Court. Should we run into further difficulties I shall lose no time in contacting you again.Yours sincerely,Adrian
