Hi I'm new to this group and was wondering if anyone knows how many times can a pip tribunal case be adjourned.

    HI and welcome,

    As many times as it's needed to be adjourned.

    Welcome to the community @Jas01! Has yours been adjourned a few times? I imagine that's quite frustrating.

    It's my partner's tribunal and yes it's been adjourned twice now .The first time was the judge wanting more medical evidence . This time it's the DWP because they say that they didn't get all the 900 pages of Doctors notes funny thing is everyone else did my partner has only been waiting for 27 months and now got to wait even longer now

    900 pages of evidence? wow that's a awful lot of evidence for anyone to read and i'll be very surprised if they read all of that, infact they most likely won't. Always remember that less is very often more. You also need to be careful when sending that amount of evidence, just incase one piece contradicts another.

    The 900 pages are just from her gp that the judge asked for and that only from the last 3 years

    In order to minimise the chances of a further postponement or adjournment I would suggest writing to HMCTS asking for a judge’s direction that the case be listed for a full session. If a tribunal want GP evidence one reason for that is that they feel the claim form was weak and the HCP report lacked credibility. You may want to secure yourself representation before you go back a third time so you can be advised on the strength of the case.
