It's over three weeks now since my wife lost her PIP tribunal and I asked for the SOR but to date have had no response, not even an acknowledgement. Does anyone know how to contact them to follow this up, please?

    Hi,

    There's no time scales for HMCTS to respond to your request and send you the SOR. You can try emailing them again to make another request.
    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.
