1. I would advise the financially destitute dependent to initiate legal proceedings herself seeking money, provided she is within the six month time limit. This avoids the need to pay a lawyer to take the case. She can copy the legal proceedings already lodged and make her own claim.

Hi there, forgive me but I've not used this site before. Unfortunately the situation was much further along than a simple claim within the first 6 months and further details of this was given in the "Steps taken so far" part of the original question submission. Unfortunately, your answer was not useful at the stage I was at of the proceedings and now the proceedings are over. I don't wish to pay as the answer you gave me was irrelevant, however I don't wish to damage your start rating. How do I proceed with that using this website? Many thanks, Ashley

2. You can seek a refund of your money from the website administrator. Or you can ask another question. Or you can Rate the answer positively, but that means you get no refund. Those are the 3 options. However, just don't rate the answer negatively as that impacts adversely upon ratings.
