    Hello @challenge44   Pleased to meet you thank you for joining and sharing.

    Sorry to hear this.

    Court appeals vary in area to areas always a backlog.

    Please can I ask what information do you wish to know?

    The current situation with COVID 19 means going to be a back log.

    We have lots on our website appeals and COVID 19

    Is that what you mean ?

    Please take care.

    Hi @challenge44 and welcome to the Community.  It's nice to meet you.  Sorry to hear about your lengthy wait for your tribunal.  As @thespiceman says, COVID 19 will be having an impact on this and many other things.  If there is any further way we can help or support you then please just let us know.  All the best.  :smile:

    Hi @challenge44 - Welcome to the community, & thank you for joining. The waiting time for tribunals was unfortunately about 1+ years in many parts of the country before Covid-19. Altho there are now phone hearings taking place, if you hope to have your representative involved in your tribunal, this might also cause a delay, as it may then be by video conferencing.
    There are unfortunately no particular predictable timescales for a tribunal, now more than ever, but I do hope it's not too long for you. :)
