Customer Question

In accordance with CPR 3.13 all parties, except litigants in person, must file and exchange budgets. At this time, I am acting as Litigant in person but I may employ a barrister for the final hearing (or sooner). How will this be viewed in the context of CPR 3.13?

I think I have already paid £48 for an answer to this question. Why am I being asked again for £44?

The system asks if you want a call. You don’t have to accept it.

Sorry, it was £38

It’s one fee for the chat, if you want a call it’s an extra cost.
