I refused to pay again as they had stated that I did not need to, and then asked for money. Yes appeal was filed in time, they, that is the court, sat on it for 9 months and two days, then said it was over the appeal time.
There are steps which have to be taken to progress an appeal which are set according to a time table prescribed by the rules. Was it one of those steps you missed? have you asked about getting fees waived?
they said that bit was their fault that it went over time, and stated that I would not have to pay again and then sent me a bill. the delay was at their end as they admitted in the conversation on the phone to my attorney Rob Moodie.
So where is the appeal now? has it been struck out or is there some step needed?
steps are needed as I have written to the Minister of courts and he/she has sent me a form to fill in, which I have yet to do. I have not filled iot in as I am at our cottage in Papamoa and the letter is at my office in Hawkes Bay. I feel I will be fobbed off yet again anyhow.
The link for the form is here and you can download another http://www.justice.govt.nz/services/court-fees/documents/Fees%20Waiver%20Application%20Form-organisation%201Jul04.pdf
Does that help?
