My partner missed his court case on Monday as he went to the wrong court. The letter he had was misleading. He asked the clerk to call the correct court to advise the error and to see if the case could be reheard.This was 30 mins before the case was due to be heard. Unfortunately the magistrate still continued without my partner being able to represent himself and was fined almost £1400 for a traffic offence of which he had documentation that proved his innocence.Assistant: Where is your partner? It matters because laws vary by location.Customer: In the U.KAssistant: What steps has your partner taken so far?Customer: He emailed the court directly on Monday evening, he has had a response today.Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: no

I Purchased a brand new vehicle from a Ford dealership in

I Purchased a brand new vehicle from a Ford dealership in March which within 7 weeks (2000 miles on the clock) Broke down and had to be taken into the workshop. It was in the workshop for a period of 4 months and had a new engine and associated coolant system fitted. I took ownership last week and within 4 days a similar fault occurred and the vehicle was undriveable. I have now rejected the vehicle and would like to know where I stand with regard to options available to me. I part exchanged my old vehicle which I wouldve lost value on due to Part Ex value being less than market value, I put approx. £8000 deposit down (including £2000 positive equity in my vehicle after finance settlement), I have paid insurance on the vehicle whilst it has been in the workshop, I have paid annual VED with the vehicle being off the road for 4 months thus far. I have had to make numerous trips into the dealership and in all honesty the stress has been ridiculous trying to sort this out. I just want to be in a position no worse than I was prior to purchasing the vehicle. The dealership is offering an exchange but they will calculate the vehicle value taking the depreciation into consideration and take it off the value of the new vehicle any extra fee will be my responsibility.Assistant: What steps have you taken so far?Customer: I have rejected the vehicle and asked the dealer to look into exchange optionsAssistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: no

In one of the very limited correspondence from my auntie I was informed I am a beneficiary in the will but I do not know who her solicitors are, only that they are in a town close by. My uncle has effectively become the mouth piece of the family when he does not have my interests at heart and has shut me out. How do I go about finding my grandmothers solicitor? Also my grandmother has photos of my late father and grandfather which I would like to keep or make copies off but he will not grant me access to the house. What can I do about this?Assistant: What documents or supporting evidence do you have?Customer: I am in EnglandAssistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: I have no evidence other than a letter from my auntie, another beneficiary, stating I will hear from Nan's solicitor in due course about her legacy

I was asked to make sure we had documents confirming public

I was asked to make sure we had documents confirming public use toilets were checked at certain times of the day. The solicitor claimed he never received the documents in the post and asked me to "find" new ones. The solicitor then sent off the original documents that I had actually sent and the recreated ones to the claimants solicitor. I'm I now liable for falsifying evidence? What can happen to me?
