    In July 2011 I was involved in a RTC which led to me being awarded money for an injury sustained and some emotional trauma. Because I was 10 at the time of the collision and 11 when the money was awarded, my awarded money was put into a Court Funds Account for me, with my dad acting as my ligitation friend. I'm about to turn 17 in August and was wondering if the early release of funds they allow will be avaliable for driving lessons - and insurance after that. So, me and my dad have written to the court that awarded me the money to ask for my dad to be given the money, for him to then give to me for what I require. It's been a week since we sent the letter and we've had no response, do they take a long time to respond or have we done the procedure wrongly?

    Courts are by their nature, busy and this slow. I would allow 2-4 weeks, but if its that important then just call them and see if they can offer any guidance. If you get stuck after that post back and I will see if I can see what the criteria is.

    I'm not too sure that the letter I sent last Tuesday was the correct way to go about things. Further research has brought up a form which shows we can request the money from the court funds office, however I think I still need to see the court that awarded me the money. My account is a special account so its managed by a deputy (my dad) - not a ligitation friend as first thought. Further to my original post, do I still have to go through the court or do I have a court order from when I was awarded the money?

    Hi the information to obtain a payment is here and you ask the original court to give permission and then contact the court funds office.

    I believe you use this form.

    Just confirm with the court the correct form. They will know straight away.
