Change of Tribunal Court?

LittleGizmo86 Member Posts: 79 Courageous
Hi guys,

So i am waing on a tribunal hearing for pip which i have asked for on the papers. This was scheduled with the liverpool court and all correspondance and confirmation of evidence sent has come from liverpool.

I am in hospital this week and not home til weekend. My mum has text me to say 2 letters came today one brown envelope and ome white one. They are both from the tribunal court in birmingham.

My mum wont open my letter as she struggles to interpret them so there is little point.

I am confuses why i have 2 letters... both in different colour envelopes... at the same time and from a different court?

Do paper hearings get dealth with at different courts bases on back log etc?

Is this likely a decision?

Im confused. Can anyone shes some light?

Thank you ?

    Paper based decisions are dealt with in between the hearings, if there's time.It would be totally impossible to answer your question and guess what the letters are about.

    Can you ask your mum to open them and read them to you?

    Sadly in order to accurately answer the question we need to know where you live. Liverpool is a regional centre for admin but also has a tribunal venue. Paper hearings under Liverpool can be dealt with anywhere in the North West.
