1. If you are being represented by a barrister at the hearing you will need to set out a Statement of Costs, as you will be incurring legal costs at the hearing. Normally, a Litigant in Person would not fill out a Statement of Costs, but as you are employing counsel, you will be incurring legal costs. This is important if you win your case, as then you can seek reimbursement of these costs (of the barrister) from the other side. In this way you will not be out of pocket if you win your legal case.
