Tuesday 18th October 2016 – Another Week, Another Tribunal……….(ChB 2nd)

Today, I attended my Child Benefit (2nd Claim/Appeal) First Tier Tribunal (FTT). My Ex-partner hasn’t yet been added as a “Party to Proceedings”. Today’s Judge will add my ex-partner as a “Party to Proceedings”.

Today’s Judge is aware of my other Child Benefit Tribunal (1st Claim/Appeal), which is currently being dealt with by the Upper Tribunal Office in London.  She Directs that I must inform ChB 2nd Tribunal of the impending Decision of the UTO when they make Decision about ChB 1st Tribunal.

If the UTO “Set Aside” the ChB 1st FTT Decision, and case gets bounced back to FTT to make fresh Decision/Hearing, then perhaps the ChB 1st & ChB 2nd Appeal Hearings could be heard together.

The Judge also raised the issue of  “Proportionality”, in relation to the Directions I’ve requested, in particular relating to one Direction which may be essential to my case. The Judge explained that she didn’t believe the request I’d made for a Direction was proportionate to the possible outcome of my Appeal. When I receive the Direction Notice in the post, I’ll probably challenge that Decision, now that I’ve chewed the concept over in my mind since then.

 

About slowlyrotting

I am constantly having to deal with several different benefits issues. I've got Appeals and Tribunals coming out of my ears. I've lost count of the formal complaints I've had to make. I've kept paper records of most of my interactions with the DWP, HMRC etc for years, so I've literally got several hundred posts (maybe thousands) to compose for this website. I can't post them to here as quick or as often as I'd like to, for a variety of reasons. The piss-poor postal services that HMCTS, HMRC, the DWP, & CSA rely on (bulk printing and several different carriers), compound the ineptitude of these departments and agencies. I intend to go back years, eventually. But at this rate, I don't think I'll ever get to post everything I want to. You can see from what I've put up so far that I've got a lot of crap to deal with. I'm probably not even 1% or 2% done. I am slowly rotting....................
