Tribunal waiting times

Rainbow116 Community member Posts: 126 Courageous
it seems a lifetime ago I started the whole process,  February 2023, received my report, MR sent in same score, information submitted for a tribunal including input from CAB 

now nearly 18 weeks later still no date for my tribunal … keep telling myself it won’t be much longer …. But already feels like an eternity …

    It can be a long wait and the MR waiting time isn't included in the Tribunal wait. For Tribunals it can be several months at least. You can also contact HMCTS and ask them what the estimated wait is for your area and they will be able to tell you. Please be aware though that this will only be a guide.
    I would appreciate it if members wouldn't tag me please. I have all notifcations turned off and wouldn't want a member thinking i'm being rude by not replying.
    If i see a question that i know the answer to i will try my best to help.
