Hi
Began the appeal process in February and received confirmation from httcs that they had received my appeal.
Heard nothing more till 5 weeks ago court sent me a letter stating that they had had no response from dwp and directing them to send paperwork within 7 days .  They also asked me to send all my paperwork to them as dwp haven't bothered. I did this immediately.  My question is what happens if dwp still fail to respond which I'm assuming they haven't as I still haven't received any case files .

    Hi @kentpete123 and a warm welcome to the community! It may be worth giving Citizens Advice a call as they'll be able to give you more detailed advice. There is also Local Advice if you want to get face to face advice. I hope you managed to get it sorted as it sounds like it'd be stressful!

    Hi thanks for the reply
    It's just weird because I can't find any reference to it happening before. I know they won't just find in my favour just slightly confused as to how dwp can get away with not engaging with the process at all. !!!

    It is not unheard of for DWP to not attend, but this shouldn't go against you. I hope you're not waiting too long for a date!

    You need to contact HMCTS because anything you send them should them should be sent to DWP by them.
    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.

    The bundle is sent from DWP. If there's evidence missing from this that you've sent to HMCTS then it's these you need to contact because they should have sent this to DWP. As you have a representative, they should be explaining all of this to you.

    HI,

    They can adjourn the hearing if there's not enough evidence to make a decision. Once they have a new date they will contact you. Hopefully not too long. You'll need to make sure you send the evidence they've asked for within that time frame. Good luck.

    Great news, i'm assuming DWP changed their mind and placed you into a group? As i see you only very recently requested the Tribunal.
