Ask a Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Hello, this is Jim and I am a dual-qualified lawyer (UK and Republic of Ireland) and happy to help you today.
It means you need to attach your proposed directions for how the claim will run. To make it easier just tailor the attached order (claim number, party names, name of the court) and attach to your directions questionnaire - send one copy to the court and one to the other side. The order I attached has the typical directions and no need to put in any dates as it is to help the court make its own timetable.
I hope this helps – if you can please rate the answer by clicking the 5 stars (the top of your screen & then click “submit”), I can answer follow up Q&A's at no extra charge and I will be credited for helping you today.
Sorry, use this one instead...
My pleasure - I can also help with questions about the case as it progresses too so if you can please bear me in mind (and this site), that would be much appreciated.
Have a good day.
Mediation is entirely optional and if liability is in dispute then it could help but for it to work, both sides need to agree to participate. The first step is proposing mediation to the other side - if they agree then the cost should be shared. There are several mediators in the UK (this is a good resource: https://civilmediation.org/for-the-public/about-mediation).
The various protocols can also be found here:
If you have further questions (not related to the directions questionnaire) may I ask that you post a new question to the main site. It will not cost extra if you have membership. If you would like me to deal with the new question please mark it “FAO:JIM” and I will pick it up as soon as I can.
