Hello, my name is ***** ***** I am a qualified lawyer happy to help you this afternoon.
I recommend a letter is written to the court to confirm that the claimant now has capacity and as such, a variation of the earlier order is required. The assessment should be enclosed with the letter.
You should follow up the letter with a phone call to the court (ask for the civil listing section) to see if they have received it and passed it to the next available Judge.
If they have then fine and hopefully it could be dealt with by a Judge - there is a risk the Judge will confirm back by saying that the claimant needs to make an application to the court to vary the order.
If that happens then an application using form N244 is required (copy attached) and a fee of £255 payable to HMCTS. The capacity assessment will need to be referred to in the application. The court should then be able to deal with the application on paper without the need for a hearing.
I hope this helps - if you can please accept the answer and give me a 5 star rating (there should be a button on your screen to do this), I can answer follow up Q&A's at no extra charge and Just Answer will credit me for helping you today.
