Just checked with court on the progress of our application to vary sent to court at the end of July - court file showed the application docs received but returned to his solicitor because the fee cheque was signed by him and not by his solicitor.
Is this normal?
Thanks dukey - very on edge about it all but I thought it was odd - the court officer said the cheque hadn''t bounced - it just wasn''t accepted by them - sounded as though if someone was represented they wouldn''t accept cheques from anyone except the solicitor.
.......his solicitor didn''t sign any of the application documents either.........
my paranoia at full throttle.
Maggie not all solicitors do sign applications in fact some don`t seem to like signing they ask the client, nothing to worry about there.
Ive called my local court (they know me well ) the clerk says they don`t even check who wrote the cheque/signed it, only to make sure it is made out to HMCTS, in his words its the payment that matters not who pays.
Thinking about it there are plenty of wiki`s who use cheques from the royal bank of mam and dad without problem, pedantic court officer maybe?.
I don`t think anything sinister is going on though Maggie.
