    Default Can't make court date

    Hi I have been given a court date for the 19th of September Vs HSBCicon for a claim of near 700 total. HSBC have already advised they will be applying for a stay. I will not be in the country as at the last minute I am being sent to the US for work. Is it possible to not turn up in person? I might be able to find someone else to show up for me , but this is also unlikely.
    Any help much appreciated really dont want to go back to the start again. Thanks

    As far as I am aware there are only special circumstances that allow for you sending someone in your place for a court hearing.
    I think the only thing you can do is to ask for an adjournment due to unforseen circumstances. The only trouble being is that it may drag the case out longer.
    I will get some confirmation on this and get back to you!

    That is exactly what I was going to say. I am just trying to find out what forms you need to do that.
    If it's good enough for dg it's good enough for you. They would only apply for a stay anyway so just beat them to it.

    Default Re: Can't make court date

    can I make a suggestion, how about phoning the Court int he morning and ask what the procedure is because work are sending you abroad, it is out with your control........ or you could offer a phone conference?? they are 2 other options other than asking for a stay how about a short adjournment

    Hiya Kiwi, just phone the court to check that DG have done what they have told you, the stay has been requested and your Judge is going to put one in place.

    I have seen that letter go out to people and no stay has been requested at the court.
