Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you.Could you please explain your situation a little more?Is there Claimant 1 and Claimant 2 on the claim form?Alex

Thanks for replying. There is a Claimant 1 (my mother) and a Claimant 2 (me) on the claim form. The school which we were suing insisted that I should be representing myself as a Litigant in Person as opposed to my mother - also a litigant in person - representing us both. So now both Claimant 1 and Claimant 2 are litigants in person.

sorry yes. It's sent to d1 and d2. You don't need to send a cheque unless you have been ordered to by the court.Does that clarify?Alex

No I think you may have misunderstood the question. I am trying to figure out if we can both claim legal costs in our own right.
