Has anyone had experience of filling in the EX160A exemption form? My mother is in a care home and we are applying for Court of Protection (Property and financial affairs) as she no longer has mental capacity. I was told by the COP that an EX160A exemption form had to be filled in. I will try to explain below starting at the top of the form:- Application for fee remission 1. About the case Name of claimant(s)/petitioner(s)/applicant(s) (Does my mother’s name or my step-father's name go here? I assume it is my step-father's name, as it refers to the person applying on behalf of someone else as "the applicant") Name of defendant(s)/respondent(s) (Does my mother’s name go here because I can't see where else it can go if my step-father is named as the claimant/petitioner,applicant?) 2. Your details (Here I have put my step fathers details (name and address, etc.) based on the paragraph from the explanatory notes below:- “You need to tell us whether you are applying for remission based on your (the applicant’s) circumstances or the person the application is about. If you are making an application to the Court of Protection on behalf of the other person you can apply for a full or part remission using your own details.” What doesn’t make sense is that they are asking for his date of birth, etc. One would think my mother’s details should go in here as there is nowhere else on the form that asks for her details. One assumes that it will be looked at in conjunction with the other COP forms and of course there will be a covering letter when it is sent.) I have never seen a form and explanatory notes that are so ambiguous and poorly written. It is a total hotchpotch that has been designed to cover exemptions for all tribunal hearings, not just Court of Protection. Of course I could spend ages on the phone waiting for the COP to eventually answer or wait days for them to reply to an e-mail, but if anyone can help I would be grateful.
