    Hi @julee welcome to the community! Sorry to hear that you are still waiting. Unfortunately, they can take up to or a little over a year. Hopefully you don't have to wait too much longer!

    I'm sorry you're having to wait so long @julee. Unfortunately it can take a long time and differs depending on where you are too.

    Hi
    yes have rung them and they said they are no longer giving out timescales as they are so inaccurate, it’s ridiculous and like you say for the hearing to be over in under a hour.
    Thanks for replies. x

    Hi julee if you have your pack of papers from the tribunal ring them and ask to have mobile phone updates ask for them to send you updates and in the text it will have a link that you can go to that as all updates to you tribunal if that helps you
