I am currently taking someone to court over an ebay dispute. The date is this Thursday the 8th. I am however too ill to attend and have been told by my doctor that I need complete bed rest for the next 7 days (serious pregnancy complications) and the court is a good 2 hour drive away.


Is it too late to get the hearing adjourned? The doctor said he would be able to supply a letter if needs be.

Hi Bailey and welcome to CAG


Ring the court in question and ask.....if its too late to adjourn you can submit a Witness Statement if you wish to add anything further in your absence.



We could do with some help from you.

I would also add that it would be a good idea to phone the other party and explain the position to them. If they are prepared to agree then an adjournment will be almost automatic.

In any event send a copy of the doctors certificate to the court - by fax and by email and explain the position. Mark it all "urgent" and address it to the office manage of the court. Send a copy by email or fax to the other party.

You may have difficulty getting through to the court by phone. Many of the courts seem to be dealing with resource shortages and customer-facing services are failing badly.

Get the documents off to them all first as a priority and then spend time wating on the phone afterwards when that is all done.
