    They have 1 month from the date of the decision to request the statement of reasons. There's no timescales for HMCTS to send this and they can take as long as they want to. Sometimes they request it but it doesn't mean they will appeal the decision. They can't appeal without finding the error in law.

    Backdated payments can take 8 weeks, sometimes longer.
