What happens next

You’ll get a letter from the tribunal explaining what happens next. You might be asked to provide more documents to support your case.

Not all cases will have a hearing, but you can ask for one. You’ll usually get at least 14 days’ notice of the date of the hearing. The tribunal will write to you with details of what you need to do.
