    Who is the claimant?

    Is DCBL DCB Limited or DCB Legal?

    If you have a court case pending then you must have received a LBC/LoC followed by a court claim.

    In Scotland a debt is statute barred after 5 years and ceases to exist.

    In England and Wales, a court claim cannot be started after 6 years, but the debt still exists.

    Was a court claim started against you before 5 years, if you live in Scotland, or before 6 years if you live in England or Wales.

    You must mean you have a hearing in April.  If they filed the claim before July 2021 it was just in time.

    What does the hearing Order say about the deadline to get your witness statement in, and evidence?

    Have you received theirs?

    What did you put in your defence in 2021, word for word please?

    A rather brief post once a week helps no-one.

    What is the Issue Date on your County Court Claim Form?

    Please show us your Claim History on the MoneyClaimsOnline website.
    It's only a few lines - just copy and paste here.

    Have you received anything from the County Court Business Centre other than the Claim Form pack?

    I think you mean you missed the deadline to do a WS and evidence?

    The answer is simple - do it NOW.  People file them late quite a lot, and it usually doesn't bother a Judge.

    Have you had theirs?

    yes i have had theirs. this is the statement i gave them I dispute the parking charge , as keeper of the vehicle, I deny
    any liability or contractual agreement, as i was not the driver on
    the day.
    I have been advised that it is not a requirement for me to name
    who was driving, and no assumptions can be drawn.
    The Claimant has not provided any details of the offence, other
    than the vehicle was parked in breach of the terms on the
    claimants sign.
    After nearly six years all I can confirm is, that I was working on
    this day and would therefore not be parked at Beacon Retail Park.
