I have started a small claim against Sanderson and I did it

Resolved Question:

I have started a small claim against Thomas Sanderson and I did it online, was only able to add myself as a claimant however have referred to both my self and partner in the claim. Thomas Sanderson is saying we must have a joint claim otherwise will be invalid. Is there a way of adding another claimant to one that has already started ?

Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you.

Has a defence been filed to that effect? Do you need to add partner as a party? Alex

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
No they have only filed and acknowledged. They sent me a email staying that it might be invalid however they would agree to have him added to the claim
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Only filed the acknowledgement of service

Ok. Then if you want to add you need to make a formal application to the court to add the second claimant.

However it may not be necessary if you are making the claim and you can use your partner as a witness.

She does not necessarily need to be a claimant.

Can I clairfy anything for you about this today please?
