Preference will be given to UK nationals. I am seeking compensation from the UK Family Court as my final divorce hearing was cancelled the day before and not heard for 3 months. In this time a £1000s were spent by both sets of solicitors with further enquiries right up until the new final hearing date some 3 months later ( I will check dates it may have been 5 months). As the divorce was bitterly fought the delay caused a lot of emotional and financial pain. I have written to complained and am at the near end of the trail trying to get compensation for the additional solicitors fees reimbursed by the courts, however they state that there was not any administrative error by the court and therefore my case holds no water. As I am not legally trained I need help researching the court administrative system/documentation to find a clause to hang my compensation claim upon. Can you help?
