I attended the Tribunal today for my Child Benefit Appeal (ChB 1st). It was first heard by a Judge on 1st May 2015, then I further appealed to the Upper Tribunal Office, which set aside the original Decision. Which is why it has to be heard by a fresh First Tier Tribunal.
But today’s Judge hasn’t read the papers for this appeal. When he’d adjourned a related appeal (ChB 2nd), he’d mistakenly thought that the ChB 1st appeal would be adjourned too. Yet the ChB 1st appeal hadn’t been adjourned, & was clearly still listed for today.
The Judge apologised to me, as he wouldn’t be able to proceed with today’s ChB 1st appeal. I said I didn’t mind, as I’d woken up with a headache yesterday & today, & I didn’t feel on top form. So the Judge adjourned today’s (ChB 1st) appeal. My ex will be added as a Party To Proceedings (I’d assumed he already had been).
