Help us to help you

You can help us, and get the most out of your appointment, by doing the following:

Contact us as soon as you can

Court cases have strict deadlines. The more notice you can give us, the more options we may have to help you.

Bring the relevant paperwork

If you have received court documents bring them with you. Put the paperwork you need to bring in a clear order. If you are unsure about what to bring, please ask when you are given the appointment.

If you want help with completing a court document, bring it with you. Fill it in as much as you can. Use pencil if you are not sure.

Come prepared

Your appointment will last about 45 minutes. Please be realistic about what you can achieve in that time.

You can help the solicitor by giving a clear and brief summary of your situation. Have key facts and dates written down.

Think about the questions you want answers to. Again, it might help to write them down and bring them with you.
