    Was it in a big brown envelope. With pages numbered. If so they are what's been sent to the appeal courts. You will get a date through but could take time. I'm going through this my appeal is in 2 weeks. Goid luck.

      When you sent off the papers for this Appeal did you ask for a paper based decision or are you both going to sttend in person? The reason i ask is because the chances of wining are much greater if you appear in person rather than just having the paper based decision. Did you also send in evidence to support your claim? The more evidence also the better your chances. Good luck smile

      Well the chances of wining if you appear in person are much greater, i'm not saying you have no chances of winning. I don't know the actual figures for DLA but i do know the figures in general are much greater if you appear. This is because it gives them a chance to see the claimant in person rather than just reading the evidence etc. Hopefully for you and your son the decision will go in your favour. Tribunal times do vary depending on where you are in the country. Some people are waiting months just to recieve a date. Sorry to hear about your stroke! Good luck with the appeal and please do come back and let us know the outcome.
