Upper tribunal last minute error in law advice

NoorNoor Member Posts: 1 Listener
i haven’t been able to find appropriate legal advice for upper tribunal and I wanted to try myself to find error of law... would anybody be able to direct me to last minute legal advice? My child has noonans syndrome and she previously received higher mobility rate and now gets lower and I want to get it back to higher as she finds it more difficult than her peers to walk due to her mobility and weakness because of her syndrome
thank you

    Is this for PIP or DLA? If you've already taken the decision to a first tier Tribunal and were refused then you'll have 1 month from the date of that decision to request the statement of reasons and record of proceedings. Once you receive these you'll have a further 1 month to find the error in law. If this isn't found then you won't be able to take it any further.

    No one on an internet forum can give you any advice whether an error in law was made because no one knows anything about your case and we can't see any paper work.

    This link will help you find an agency local to you for further expert advice. https://advicelocal.uk/

    Good luck.

    Hi @Noor and a warm welcome to the community! I am sorry to hear that you are having to take it to upper tribunal, I imagine it has been a long road to get to this point.

    Unfortunately, Poppy is right in the fact that we are unable to provide much information at this stage. However, please do let us know how you get on and I hope we will be able to support you emotionally through this process.

    There are 5 errors. Almost all first tier statements will contain 1.

    1 - insufficient reasons.
    2 - perversity.
    3 - breach of natural justice.
    4 - insufficient findings of fact.
    5 - getting the law wrong.
