Thank you for your question
My name is Clare
I shall do my best to help you but I need some further information first.
What expenses are actually being claimed?
Do you understand that a phone call will cost you more?
That is fine
Can you substantiate any specific time you had off?
How many hours did you actually spend on appointments rather than correspondance?
My apologies for the delay.
You can only charge for loss of earnings for those occasions when you actually lost earnings - when you had to attend appointments - and then you can only charge what you actually lost in terms of your earnings.
Once you have calculated then you may need to offer to repay some monies to your brother
If you have no capital assets then a monthly payment is all that you can offer.
I hope that this is of assistance - please ask if you need further details
