    • I'm removing two posts here – one because it refers to "… All from the same ethnic background" and the second one referring to the fact that the customer was Spanish. The first, particularly by king12345 has a strong racist tone about it and is completely unwelcome here.  king1 2345 has been here long enough and knows very well that this is not what we do. ==============================================================================   In terms of the building and insurance problem, it certainly sounds if you are being treated very badly and we would be very happy to help. Unfortunately I find your story is rather unclear – probably because there is a lot of narrative and I'd be grateful if you could clarify your story and in particular breaking down the insurance job and the rest including giving their values. Do you know if the insurance money has been paid to the customer or is the insurance company simply waiting for some kind of approval. You say that the insurance company has signed the job off and so this suggests to me that they are satisfied but what worries me is that they may already have paid the money to the customer who is merely withholding it from you rather than authorising the direct payment of the insurance money to you. Your story needs substantial clarification please. Finally, does your customer own the property? If you are not sure then you should consult the land registry website to ascertain the owner of the property

    • Thanks DX re counterclaim. Just to clarify regarding witness should I just put one on the N180 and at court just take a witness statement from partner?  
    • I am hoping someone can advise me regarding my salary. I work as an emergency response driver for a private medical transport company. I work 6 x 24 hour shifts on call(total of 144 hrs) followed by 2 rest days(48 hrs). I work from my home address, with a company vehicle parked outside. During my six on call shifts, I must be available to respond to any task given to me (by phone-call) within a certain time. As you can imagine, while on call I am very limited to what activities I can take part in. Due to the nature of my role and the need to respond within 30 minutes to 90 minutes I am somewhat tied to my home. Obviously I cannot consume alcohol, go for family meals, go shopping etc. Even while attending hospital appointments, popping to the shop I must wear my uniform, take the vehicle with me and be contactable and ready to respond. It has been brought to my attention that on call time is now classed as working time if you must be at the disposal of your employer during that on call time.   Is that correct and if so, should I be paid at least the minimum wage while on call. I am currently paid an annual salary of £22,000 for being on duty an average of 6,570 hours per year which would put my hourly rate at well below the minimum( not including annual leave).   Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Morning, sorry if this isn't in the right section, just need some advice.

 

I am applying for my first ever passport tomorrow as I have booked an holiday for January, 6, 2019 as I am going to send of my form tomorrow at the Post Office with check and send and my foam contains pictures for my passport and other supporting documents.

 

Does anyone know how long it takes?

will I get it before January?

 

Also, is it 100% that I will get a passport?

or could I be refused one?

 

as I never had a passport and I am also a British citizen as I was born in the UK.

 

I am just worried that I will get refused a passport, should I be worried?

as I am looking forward to going to Benidorm for 7 days in January and I am excited to be going on a plane for the first time.

 

Any advice would be great thank you.

Hi.

 

 

The Benefits forum doesn't deal with passport matters, I've moved you to the Visas one.

This is from the Passport Office about reasons a passport can be refused or withdrawn.

 

https://www.gov.uk/british-passport-eligibility

 

As long as you don't fall under the categories they mention and have sent all the documents, I don't see why you wouldn't get a passport.

 

I don't know how long passports are taking at the moment, the Post Office should be able to tell you. I've used their checking service before and it works well. :)

That's great, thanks honeybee13 - I don't fall into that category which I am pleased about :)

- I have a council tax debt at the moment which I am paying £40.00 per month to Jacobs, will this stop me from getting a passport?

I wouldn't have thought council tax arrears would affect anything, Channing, being in debt isn't a criminal offence. :)

Haha, that's great honeybee13 - thanks for your help :) my mind is at ease now knowing nothing will affect my chance of getting a passport, will I have to attend an interview to continue my passport application?

I've never been asked in for an interview, I doubt if they have time. I've had a UK passport since I was in my teens.

If its your first passport, its likely you will go and speak to a passport official, just to confirm your identity and so they can make sure you are who you say you are.

 

Its a pretty short interview, and they have a ton of info about you anyway from various sources.

 

They ask random questions based on that info and just want to see if what you say matches their info.

 

Once the interviews over, it takes a week or so for your passport to come.

 

They have the passport there and then in the interview, but they have to sign off on it and send it out.

No, nothing to do with passport.

You should have your passport in 4 weeks max, unless there's a problem, then they'll call you

Hi

When I applied for my first passport, I also used the check and send service at the Post Office. With this service you only pay one fee and if you have to make changes (usually photo) then you won't be charged again.

 

 

As it was my first passport, I was invited to an interview to ensure I was who I said I was.

 

 

My interviewer asked me which post office I used and its location and he asked a few personal questions that only I would know. They have a computer on the desk so I assume they have the answers already and my responses were just a confirmation and that was it. 20 minutes.

 

 

My passport was delivered the next day by secure courier.

 

 

I must add that if you have issues with the forms, the helpline is good. I had issues because my mum had died and I'm estranged from my dad and all they said was to include a short letter to explain that I had no idea if my dad had a passport and my mums had expired (obviously)

Hi Silverfox1961

- Thanks for that and sorry to hear about your mum.

 

Can I ask, did you have to sign for your passport when the courier arrived?

 

I am just worried as I am starting back in work next Wednesday and I just hope I don't have to sign for it.

I do believe I didn't as I was home when it was delivered. It's a couple of years ago and I've slept since then.

Hi, today has been a total nightmare, I done it wrong 3 times on the passport foam as post office did a check and send so I had to re do it again three times - but that's not it as 4th one is also a nightmare as I need to send my parents marriage and birth certificate with my foam but my parents have't got birth certificate, so they just ordered them on the phone, which this will delay my passport. Why do they need my parents birth certificate and marriage when I am applying for the passport? they don't make it so easy. I am so stress with this all that If this delays my holiday to Benidorm, I won't be very happy at all. I only want a passport, it's not rocket science. :(

Hi.

 

I'm sorry it's been hard for you. I don't know why they would want to see your parents' evidence, did they say?

 

You have months in hand before your holiday, I don't think you should worry about the timing. :)

Does anything in this information from the government apply to you, channing?

Hi Honeybee13 - I think this does, where it states: On or after 1 January 1983 - as I was born in 1986, does that same about right when they asking for my parents birth certificate and marriage certificate as well. It could take up to 4 weeks once the birth certificate and marriage certificate arrived to my parents and then I can send my passport off, and I hope this is the end of it lol.

It's because you never had a passport before.

If your parents have passports you can send them (or just the number if I'm not mistaken), but if they don't then you need birth certificates.

This is to prevent people who enter the country illegally or overstayed their visa to register their kids as British citizens.

They've become a bit stricter in recent years.

Hi, Can I have some advice on filling in the form as I want to make sure I get it right for my passport application goes smoothly this time. I am only filling in the foam at the moment as I can't send it off just yet until my parents birth certificate and marriage certificate arrive.

 

It says on the form in Section 1 it says the following: If you want to pay for a 48-page passport, put a (X) in this box, what does this mean? Is this normal / standard passport? and should I put an X?

 

Also, in Section 5 it says this: Certificate of registration or naturalisation - Has the person named in section 2 been granted a certificate of registration or naturalisation? Cross (X) in the No or Yes box. Anyone know what this means? I am confused.

 

Any advice would be great, thank you.

have you been a citizen of another country and acquired UK citizenship by 'naturalisation'?
