Order to obtain information

SKU: 9.54
  • Advice

    An order to obtain information is an order to go back to court and be questioned under oath, it is an offence to purposefully withhold information when questioned, however, you only need to answer direct questions, you do not need to elaborate, especially if it is detrimental to your situation.


    If you are unsure of any answers then just be brutally honest, some solicitors (assuming they would be representing the other side) may ask you questions such as “how much is your car worth” etc (rest assured they would have already got the answer online) – hence you state “maybe a thousand pounds” for them to show a quotation from “we buy any car” etc a valuation of several thousands. These traps are there to make you look bad so blunt honesty (and not guessing to try and please them) is usually the best policy.


    You may be ordered to bring documents to your court hearing. These may include documents such items such as bank statements, receipts, payslips etc. The order to obtain information will also include a warning if you do not attend the hearing. Technically you could even be imprisoned for not complying with a court order.


    How we can help

    We would never suggest a client go into court without professional representation, our initial stance would be to request a list of questions from the other side so that we can answer them without the court having to give up any of its valuable time. Court staff expect both sides to only go to court if no amicable solution can be found, as such by providing the required information, we may be able to avoid court altogether.
