Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you.
Does it say its with or without a hearing?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
It says without a hearing. Evidence has been provided, albeit incomplete in our opinion.
Thanks
Expert:  Ash replied 2 years ago.
Ok - then you should contact the Court and ask for a hearing. The court will then list the matter for a hearing. At that point you can submit your evidence, the Judge will hear representations from both sides and make a decision.
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?

Thanks and yes it does. One final point, do on what grounds do we need to ask for a hearing or will the Court automatically agree?
Expert:  Ash replied 2 years ago.
If you dispute it the Court should automatically set it down for a hearing, but I would briefly outline why.
Can I clarify anything else for you?
