Hello Mark my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
Have you been interviewed at all please?
OK. Can you be charged without an interview or caution - yes.
You can have a postal court issue. So yes it is possible.
Although generally this is only for minor matters, such as driving etc.
But can they take you to Court without speaking to you etc - yes
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
Ok, you need to contact the Court to make arrangements to re-attend.
I agree its not fair, but sadly the law says they dont have to charge you first.
I am sorry if this is not the answer you want, nor the one I want to give you, but I have a duty to be honest
Only if the matter was not issued in Court. If they issued the summons before 6 months, the clock stops.
It does not have to be heard before 6 months.
Does that clarify?
If I could ask you to rate my answer before you go today, otherwise the site does not pay me for the time spent with you today. Thank you in advance and good luck!
