Thank you for your question. I am a solicitor in Scotland. You could try to deal with this yourself but a proof before Answer deals with both questions of fact and law, is an ordinary action, as opposed to a simple procedure or small claim action, and I would not recommend that you do this on your own. If you are unemployed you could find a solicitor who might be prepared to do this on legal aid. The solicitor would have to make an immediate application to the court to have the case adjourned to enable an application for legal aid to be made. Those are your options. I hope that helps. Please leave a positive rating so that I am credited for my time.
