Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
Have you named the female partner as a defendant?
Has it been allocated as a small claim?Have they filed any evidence?
Yes in that case you can. You need to make an application to the county court. If granted, the court will issue a summons. You then need to have it personally served upon the person you want to attend and offer travel expenses.
So yes you can apply for a witness summons even to a small claim.
Can I clairfy anything for you about this today please?
Looking I did ask for further information on 20th September and it appears you replied on 23rd. You can also ask the court to abridge service.
Yes you can ask the male where the money came from no prove as such.
You are the claimant, you just need to prove that on balance your version of events is more likely than not.
Does that Clarify?
Sorry, my faulty for not being clear. You can ask them to prove it where it came from, you can ask those questions.
So yes you can ask without him presenting proof. Ideally you want proof to challenge, but that does not stop you from asking.
Remember, all you need to show is on balance your version of events is more likely.
Does that clarify?
