Child DLA tribunal query

briancharles5612 Member Posts: 43 Connected


Our child has had an appeal outstanding for 42-43 weeks. Every time we ring the local court for an update we get a different explanation. They even contradicted citizens advice.

The latest they said is if it gets to 44 weeks they send the case back to DWP Birmingham.

Does anyone know what happens then?

We’re thinking the appeal may never get heard. 

Any information welcome.
