Hello, I hope you are well. My name is***** am a solicitor advocate and I will be assisting you with your question today. I am very sorry to hear of the problem you are experiencing and I will do my best to help you with this matter.
Thank you for that additional information, that will be helpfull in allowing me to advise you today.
As you have a solicitor instructed in this matter, you really should contact them to look into what has happed.
Normally if a defendant fails to to respond, the order would be made by the court in favour of the applicant.
I cannot say why the hearing dod dot the place, that would simply be a guess that does not help you. Only the court will know the reason.
Therefore either contact your solicitor and have them chase the matter, or make contact with the court dealing with the matter yourself to see what has happened and if a new date has been set.
It is possible the defendant is not telling you the truth and simply the judge was not available. It can be as simple as that.
Can I assist or clarify anything further?
Thank you for using Just Answer and for allowing me to assist you with your legal enquiry. I am pleased I was able to be of assistance. Please do not hesitate to come back to me for further advice on this or any other legal matter. It will be my pleasure to be able to assist you again.
If the defendant wanted to cancel the undertaking it would have to go via the court and you should be informed.
Again chase your solicitor.
