      In the meantime, you can prepare your witness statement and draft order to suit, should you need issue an application without consent.

      I have an example statement floating around that you can use as a starting point but will need to dig it out.
      If you have a question about the voluntary termination process, please read this guide first, as it should have all the answers you need. Please do not hijack another person's thread as I will not respond to you

        Here you go, I've managed to find a template I prepared some time last year consisting of a witness statement, draft order and N244.

        Note on the N244 there is wording in the evidence box but it is an either or option i.e. you either utilise what's been drafted in the box or you use the witness statement which is more detailed (I prefer the latter but your choice).

        You will need to adapt to suit.

          Just a brief update to note that unsurprisingly VCS directly have not responded to my mail.

              Hi

              I intend to send my application (the attached documents) imminently. Please can i ask for a final eye casting if possible?

              For the remaining draft order gaps to fill (2 & 4), i assume they are for the court to fill and no estimate or similar is supposed to be filled by myself?

              Just to clarify as i've heard conflicting advice, do i send both claimant and court copies to the court or one to the court and one to Elms(claimant legal rep)?

              thanks

                I notice that the automated CCBC email response states:

                You will need to send any ‘claim response’ which includes the acknowledgment of service, part admission or defence/counterclaim forms as well as directions questionnaires (DQs) directly to ccbcaq@justice.gov.uk to ensure that they are filed correctly. Your email has not been forwarded.

                N244 and N245 applications should be sent to ccbcfees@justice.gov.uk

                I was under the impression it was all postal but email is more welcomed. the official n244 notes form on the gov website doesn't actually say where to send it.

                In which case do you know where i send my application - i would think ccbcfees from the above but just to check thanks

                  Some feedback below.

                  Your N244 Form
                  1. You need to change the colour of text on yourN244 form from blue to black.

                  2. Paragraph 2 is unnecessary as you are essentially saying the same thing in your WS.

                  3. You have omitted your claim for costs in Q3, if you want to claim it as your draft order suggests, get it in there otherwise you may be rejected because you haven't asked the court for it.

                  4. You've not completed Q6, put in 30 mins.

                  Witness Statement
                  1. The WS could be better structured e.g. paragraph 6 isn't really suited where it is because you are setting out the relevant facts and background where this is an opinion or allegation. However, it's probably not fatal and given that you want to submit this tomorrow then probably leave it in.

                  2.Don't think you need paragraph 13 which is just a regurgitation of the CPR which I'm sure the judge will be aware of. Again no harm in keeping it in but just not necessary.

                  3. Paragraph 14 doesn't make sense to me because I can't see any reasons in your WS that you have grounds for a defence. I think your suggesting paragraph shows grounds for a defence but really if you are relying on a defence as a ground for setting aside then you should really provide a draft defence as part of your application, so the judge can see how you would intend to defend it and the reasons.

                  4. Your statement of truth is out of date. There is a new one you must include which is below.

                  I believe that the facts stated in this witness statement are true. I understand that proceedings for contempt of court may be brought against anyone who makes, or causes to be made, a false statement in a document verified by a statement of truth without an honest belief in its truth.

                  Draft Order
                  1.Blue text needs changing to black.

                  2. In para. 2 you mentioned that VCS should file detailed particulars but unless I missed it, there wasn't anything in your WS to suggest that their particulars were inadequate plus you would need explain why they are inadequate. You could however explain that at the hearing instead.

                  3. Para. 5 refers to your application costs but what about your costs preparing the application and drafting the witness statement and draft order? You are entitled to seek an hourly rate of £19 per hour. CPR 46.5 allows this and the Practice Direction confirms this at 3.4

                  As for your other questions, the judge completes the blanks but confirm these at the hearing, don't just rely on the judge ask him to confirm that the draft order is sufficient or you can put the times in your e.g. 14 days each.

                  No need to send the application to the other side, this is done by the court as you have completed Q9.

                    Many thanks Rob. All taken onboard.

                    Final call: I have attached a new draft order if you could take a look.

                    I am then going to send all of my documents to ccbcfees@justice.gov.uk as that appears to be most appropriate

                    -----------

                      Remove that image from the second page and just add the £95.00 to the £255 so the total costs should be £350.

                      If you are sending by email, do you qualify for the fee exemption otherwise how are you going to pay? If you do qualify, you need to make sure you put your HWF fee on the N244 at the top right corner.

                        ok thanks.

                        Yes, my N244 features HWF code (which i generated through online route via the gov application website around a week ago) I have put this in the relevant box on the form.


                        They make it a tad unclear on various gov sites / pages where to send all of this and by what method in my opinion but here are the steps / response i received when going down the online route if interested.


                        Complete your application for help with fees
                        1. Write this application reference on your claim form

                        HWF-EVR-MQX

                        2. If you’re not using a paper claim form, you still need to send your application reference to the court. You can use this template:
                        Reference: HWF-EVR-MQX

                        I completed an online application for help with fees on 07/01/2021.

                        Yours sincerely,

                        MR
                        3. Deliver your claim form to the court or tribunal dealing with your case (by post or in person)

                        4. You'll hear from the court or tribunal if your application is unsuccessful or if they need more information from you.
                        Your case will not proceed until you send your reference number and claim form to the court or tribunal.
