  • Help to get adjournment

    Hi I am being prosecuted for my son's non attendance (I am currently homeschooling him and taking his EHCP to tribunal)
    I am not entitled to legal aid representation due to not being at risk of imprisonment. I have received no advice regarding this matter. I plead not guilty and I am going to trial. I had 6 weeks over the new year period to try and get some advice or free representation, *I have been unsuccessful therefore I am clueless going in to trial and I feel this is unfair! I am appearing at Camberwell magistrates court, their phone lines ring out, I'm not allowed to contact the prosecution, so I have had no idea or any way of finding out how to adjourn this case until I've received at least some legal advice. I have until 1:30pm tomorrow. I understand I might not get a response in this time. If that's the case I will be going into the court room and asking for an adjournment. Somebody please help me. I want to adjourn this case on the grounds of not having enough time to get get legal advice. How do I do this? I have no solicitor and it is impossible to get through to the court.
