Looking at court procedures: if there are any additional

This answer was rated:

Looking at court procedures: if there are any additional hearings such as a procedural hearing prior to the appeal hearing will these incur extra court fees in addition to the fee for the appeal hearing itself; also what is the sheriffs note that has to be handed in with the appeal and where would I find it?Thanks
Generally fees are payable on the lodging of documents and for the main hearing in a case. Procedural hearings don't tend to attract a fee. The sheriff will write a note about a decision which is appealed against. However, he will not do so if it's simply a case that you didn't enter appearance in the original action. Check with the clerk of court that you are following the right procedure for the type of action you are involved in.

We did appear in the original action so should we have automatically received a copy of the sheriffs note with the decision or do we have to request it; if we request that the Sheriff writes a note on our application to appeal (form 6.2) will we automatically receive a copy of the sheriffs note at that point or does it go straight in to process without our being able to see it?Thanks

.......will notes of evidence be included in the sheriffs note automatically or does that have to be requested separately?Thanks
The sheriff will write a note in advance of the appeal and that will be circulated to the parties. The shorthand notes will not be automatically transcribed. If there was a proof hearing with a shorthand writer and if you want the notes for the appeal you would have to arrange for and pay for that yourself.
