Hello, this is Jim and welcome to JustAnswer.
Thank you for the question, I am reviewing the details now. I will aim to resolve it as quickly as possible for you.
The order was made previously by a judge and then sealed / stamped - you will note the earlier date at the bottom of the wording in the order and the top right is usually a later date. The order should have been sent out to you before the expiry of that deadline however - if it was not then it's probably an error by the court staff.
That is a typical court order so that the staff can ensure all parties can attend the final hearing. If you did not reply then it's OK - the court will simply proceed and list a hearing date when the case will be dealt with by a judge. If you do have dates to avoid then you should write to the court, mark the letter "FAO The Court Manager", ensure you put in the party names and claim number - and say that you have a date to avoid (if you do, such as pre booked holiday).
I hope this answers the question. If you have any follow up questions then please do let me know.
Just a final note that I am free most days and would be happy to assist with any other queries you may have.
Thanks, ***** ***** like an error as the deadline for the dates has passed by the time the order was sent out (unless I am mistaken). It would be worth calling the court's civil listing section tomorrow morning when they open at 10am to ask them whether the date is a typo. I would say it's a mistake on the court's part.
My pleasure, errors do happen so I am sure the staff will clear this up for you
