Ask a Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Hello, I’m Ben, a UK lawyer and will be dealing with your case today. I may also need to ask some questions to determine the legal position.
What is the reason for the claim?
OK thank you. Leave it with me for now and I will get back to you with my answer as soon as I can, which will be at some point today. The system will notify you when this happens. Please do not reply in the meantime as this may unnecessarily delay my response. Many thanks.
Many thanks for your patience. You cannot expect the court to research the address of the respondent unfortunately. This is entirely up to you and you have to find a way to get their address. Without it you would not be able to submit a claim as there would be nowhere you can serve the court papers. You have two options – continue to try and find their address and perhaps engage a private investigator to try and locate them; or use their last known address which is legally permissible to serve legal papers.
