    Hello again Great news about your date, here are a few tips for your day. Don't Miss Your Court Date. Do not be late. Being late can make you anxious and unable to do your best in front of the judge. Allow Plenty of Time to Get to Court. You should arrive at the courtroom 1 hour before your hearing time. Consider the traffic, weather, parking, frequency of the bus. Bring your files. You should have a file with copies of all papers you and the other side have filed with the court, or given to each other. Bring a notepad and pens for taking notes during the hearing. Bring an outline of what you want to say. As you cover each point, check it off. Before you conclude, look back to see if you covered each point. Bring your evidence. all court orders letters, any proof of arrears charges etc.Before you leave, re-read the most important documents, including your witness statement and any submissions you are planning to make to the court. It is particularly useful to practise saying aloud, either to yourself or to a friend or family member, the key things that you want to tell the court. During the hearing you should listen carefully, ask permission of the Judge to speak, talk directly to the judge and not the other side, avoid arguing with or interrupting another person, and control your emotions. When you talk to the Judge, start by saying "Your Honour". Speak loudly and clearly and remember that only one person can speak at a time. Before you leave court make sure you understand what happens next. Do you need to come back for another court hearing? Do you need to prepare a written legal argument or proposed court order?Do you need to take other steps or actions? That's why the notebook and pen come in handy. Dress smart / casual, don't chew gum and turn your mobile off. Ask someone you know and trust to come to court with you. They may be able to help you keep calm and focused, assist you in keeping your papers together, and help with taking notes. They will normally be able to sit with you in court, although they will not normally be able to speak for you. Try and stay calm you are not a criminal on trial here.Hopefully things will go very well for you.

    Stay hearings are heard by district judges (resident and deputy), not by circuit judges, hence one addresses them as 'Sir' or 'Madam'...it is customary to add either to the END of the sentence, not the beginning. Do not ask the judge's permission to speak, he/she will come to you when they are ready to hear from you. If the other side say something that you disagree with, the judge will come back to you, if not, THEN ask if you 'may address the point made by....' (it is useful to ask the rep's name outside of court so you can use their name, if not, say 'the rep for the mortgagee' or similar). Bail hearings are heard in criminal courts, your stay hearing is in a civil court, unless your county court deals with both matters (not the usual course of things). Stay hearings are all listed at the same time for a given day, and are slotted in to whichever judges' list has space - so don't expect to be seen at 10 am, it's very unlikely to occur. If you can afford the CMI plus something towards the arrears, a judge is very unlikely to award possession (so long as you have proof). Good luck.

    We do have very good reps on here Hi CAG members, We thought it would be nice to introduce ourselves and to assure you all that our presence on CAG is with the very best of intentions. vodafone UK has recently introduced a dedicated Web Relations Team which is keen to seek out customers who’re having difficulties with their accounts and feel that they have no other place to turn to than CAG and other consumer forums and blogs. Naturally, it’s not possible for us to help directly with account specific queries on CAG and as such we would encourage those members who feel we can help them to contact us privately at [email protected] quoting ‘WRT135 – CAG Forum’ in the subject line to ensure that it reaches the Web Relations Team. When emailing us we would also ask that you either provide us with a link to your post or thread – if you’ve posted in another member’s thread please also provide your CAG username so that we can check what your query is.

    The OP is entitled to ask questions for others if they wish. Usual practice if there are concerns about posts is to report them and let the Site Team deal with them rather than take a thread off track in the open forum. Thank you.

    I think it covers the key points. Once sent, the burden of proof would shift to them to prove that they still have the right to chase you. Please keep us all update with your progress. Best wishes, David.

    Worth putting in your letter about the interest rates that are a direct result of their updating of your credit reference failure to correct that.

    Someone on one of these things said I was lying/making, they simply could not believe it. Well neither can I which is why I will never ever stop. Atrocious practices will continue, so when I do stop it will be because things have been fully righted or I am dead. I too am apparently "unemployable" so be it, rather that than let injustice prevail and remain silent. The term is actually black-listed, starved into submission. I spent 33 years' of my life employed by the same people and am a little further along the line than you having exhausted the EAT and JR system. This site was infiltrated by my ex employer or their legal people when I consulted it prior to my Tribunal, the costs judge said I didn't have to pay that bit! Continue to fight the good fight. The systems in place are certainly not fair the EAT in London is as flawed as the ET but something you have to go through. The subsequent JR, though less hostile, was equally useless. I have no option but to fully exhaust their systems, Hillsborough, Lawrence and Savile took 20 years' to be exposed continue to fight the good fight or become bitter.

    WHAT CAN WE DO? I have tried to complain about the lack of accountability of the judges - They are supposed to comply with a duty to give reasons and describe the evidence they used in their decisions. There is a habit of using quotes from past cases without explaining how they relate to the case they are adjudicating on. See my blog! I am now attempting to compile a dossier of these decisions in my quest to improve the system. I have attempted to make disclosures to all of those in highest authority. I would like to hear the full details of your story. I have started a blog on blog spot. I have called it tribunals and tribulations. ( no spaces) It is an ongoing process and I need more material - not to mention more time! I am trying not to let this take over my life, but it is not something that we should be ignoring. More people need to make their voice heard. I have observed some employment tribunals and the majority of judges are rude, intimidating and dismissive of evidence. I have been told by ALL of the lawyers I have been in contact with that the outcome of a case 'depends on the mood of the judge and whether he likes you or not.' I have spoken to many and not one of them had any faith in the system.
