I am trying to pursue a company in Scotland via small claims court,
I have received the paperwork back today
Subject : Claims Issued Out Of Jurisdiction
Please find enclosed claim forms returned to you for service,
As this is a claim form to be issues out of the jurisdiction of the court.
Money Claims Centre no longer servers the claim form direct to the defendant.
The money Claims Centre has received this guidance from Court Business Support and as directed by a District Judge.
Rule 6.4b of the cilic Procedure Rules only refer to general service by first class post
to a jurisdiction within England and Wales and does not apply to foreign process.
There is no provision to serve papers to addresses outside England and Wales
I have rang PSU in Liverpool who in my opinion wasn't overly helpful
in the pack returned I have :-
Notice of issue (Duplicate)
- I believe I keep this and fill in the missing dates of when sent, when it was received and date to reply
Copy of claim form and submitted evidence - which I send to defendant
N510 form - do I send that to the defendant ?
Response form - which I assume the defendant needs to ?
I need to know if I can put all the paperwork in the post and send via recorded method ?
I need to know how many days I have to give the defendant to reply ?
I know this is urgent and need to deal with it ASAP thanks for your support
