Expert:  Stuart J replied 1 year ago.

good morning. Thank you for the question. It is my pleasure to assist you with this.

Could you explain your situation in a little more detail please?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
In the form: Apellant's Notice N161 (All appeals except small claims track appeals)In Section 11: Supporting Documents and in the Knowledge that I have to make the appeal to a Circuit Judge, what should it be:- "In the County Court of High Court"or:- "In the Court of Appeal"My guess is the first: "In the County Court of High Court"Am I right? This is Urgent so Yes or No, please.
Expert:  Stuart J replied 1 year ago.

I need to know which court the decision is that you are appealing from.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
County Court.
I don't see the form n161 asking me anything from which court, obviously this is the form I was given IN the court.
Expert:  Stuart J replied 1 year ago.

Which court was the original matter in. What is it that you are appealing?

Expert:  Thomas Judge replied 1 year ago.

In your case you are appealing as I understand it from a district judge to a circuit judge. This does not mean the court of appeal it stays within the county court. I hope that answers your questions. Please rate positive.

Expert:  Thomas Judge replied 1 year ago.

for the avoidance of doubt it is just called the 'county court' and not the county court of the high court. Please rate positive.

Expert:  Stuart J replied 1 year ago.

Thank you. For some reason, your answer advising me of the County Court crossed with my question about which court the original matter was in. I see now that is the County Court.

Your initial appeal therefore of the district judges finding is to the High Court or County Court and you should fill in the first section of 11.

If you are still going further with the appeal, for the next appeal you would fill in the next section, Court of Appeal

Kind regards.

Expert:  Thomas Judge replied 1 year ago.

My colleague is not correct in your case about the appeal going to the high court. It would go to the county court.
