Hi thanks for your question. My name is Tony.
Yes, it's always worth writing to the Court to chase it up - they do take a little longer than usual these days due to backlogs and lack of recources.
The only point I would make, is that you need to make sure you filed a defence to the counterclaim if you intend to defend the counterclaim, as you don't say whether you did that in your question.
I have cases in which I have waited for 4 months for the court to respond, which is ridiculous, but these days they do seem to take a while to respond in some courts.
Thank you. Is there a time frame as to when defence to counterclaim ought to be filed, I was under the impression this should be at the time of allocation questionnaire but will get started straight away
A defence to Counterclaim needs to be filed within 14 days of service of the counterclaim on you.
If you fail to do it within this time, you risk them applying for judgment in default.
