Had my FH 10 weeks ago and still haven''t had the outcome!!!!
However, I received a letter today from the court which said "due to the circumstances with reference to her practice this still has not been completed, and unfortunately, at present I do not have a time schedule for this." It also apologied for the delay !!!
My biggest concern was the Deputy District Judge named on the letter was not the Judge that actually heard the case
So I rang the court clerk and pointed out the error, only to be advised that the named DJ has acknowledged the delay and responded anyway the clerk is going to look into it ..... I was also informed that the s2bx''s solicitor is pestering them for a response....hence the reason for the letter today
I must admit that the delay is working in my favour as im still in the FMH, however my concern is how can a proper decision be made so long after the hearing?
Has anyone else experienced this?
Any ideas of the delay/problem?
Would i have to go through another FH if the court has really messed up?
Any suggestions really appreciated, as i had almost forgot about that part of my life lol
The Judge would normally keep detailed notes through the hearing,and heardings are recirded so she would be able to listen to the tapes if she needed to refresh her memory.
It sounds as thought the case may have been heard by a deputy (part time Judge) who has not had time to draw up a detailed judgement yet.
All you can do is keep chasing. I would reccommend you keep a note of each time you call, and the name of the person you speak to, and what they tell you so you have a record of what happens.
If you are called back to court so that you can hear the Judgegive her judgment, make a note of exactly what she says, as this would form the basis of any appeal if you feel the decision is wildly wrong.
