Customer Question

Hi
My Dad has been having dialysis since 2003, and has struggled to get to his treatment 3 times a week during this time. Since the loss of my mum a few weeks ago, he has realised that he is entitled to an Attendance Allowance benefit, something that he was previously totally unaware of. Is it possible that he could apply for this to be backdated?
Many thanks

Hello,
I'm Shantal and I'm a moderator for this topic.
I've been working hard to find a Professional to assist you with your question, but sometimes finding the right Professional can take a little longer than expected.
I was checking to see if you had already found your answer or if you still need assistance from one of the Professionals.
Please let me know if you wish to continue waiting or if you would like for us to close your question?
Thank you,
Shantal

My apologies for the delay an emergency arose.The D81 is a form that your solicitor may not only have completed but also signed on your behalf.You shoudl request a copy from your solicitor and the Court.If there is a clear indication of an intent to remarry or cohabit then there is no basis on which the Order can be challenged.If there is not then yes your ex can indeed ask for the Court to reconsider the matter on the basis of your remarriagealthough of course that does not actually mean that the Order will not stand - from what you have said it does not actually change the position in any way.Your ex is indeed late in making the payment and you can apply to enforce it - there is no compensation you can claim - just costs of enforcementPlease ask if you need further detailsClare
