If you need to change the date of your hearing
You can apply to change the date of your hearing but, in most cases, you will need to show ‘exceptional circumstances’ such as an emergency beyond your control. You will also need to show that you took reasonable steps to deal with it. If the emergency was medical, you must provide medical evidence.
You may also be able to change the hearing date if your lawyer is not available but only if you meet certain conditions. Your lawyer should apply within 5 days of your eligibility interview.← If you need to change the date of your hearing
