I am intending to be a litigation friend for my OH in court soon. Is it automatic that a request for the case to be heard in private will happen as I am concerned about reactions to stress. If I am trying to talk on behalf the OH as I know more about the case then she does and I have trouble speaking, as I at times do (stress related as much as anythink else) will they(the court) allow time for that. More the reason for the case to be heard in private so to limit these issues. Would be grateful for advise on this issue and I thank you..

Based on the information in your post I don't think you will be given any clear answer.

 

I suspect it would depend on what the court case was about and what stage you had reached.

 

Best advice is to speak to the clerk of court, so they can hopefully set your mind at rest.


We could do with some help from you.

Thanks for the quick reply. Civil case about a loan, first hearing, nothing major. I hear of courts are stressful places and I rather prevent something in advance getting unmanageable..

Going to court and accesibility. If you have to go to court as a witness (thats me), juror, victim or defendant, you may need extra support or facilities.

 

Court rooms and places where civil or family proceedings are held should be accessible to disabled people..

This will probably just be in a side room in the court, with just the Judge, you and OH, the claimants legal representative and someone to take notes. Not that many people.

 

If the claimants (creditors or assigned debt company) are bringing the case, they will have to make all the running. The judge will question what case they are making and then ask you as representative of the OH for your comments.

 

If you have supplied the court the relevant documents and the claimants have also done the same, then the Judge has probably made their mind up already. If this is the case, then the hearing may be over very quickly.

I could cope with the side room, but the idea of an open court is a bit intimindating..
