Hello again,

It has been almost 11 months since we submitted an appeal to the courts. Our lawyer has submitted the appeal around the end of November 2017, and we received a letter from the courts around December 2017 that the courts have received our appeal. We went to Exil yesterday and we were told that we will soon be receiving a court date (her estimate is between December 2018 and January 2019). But we have been reading news that people actually receive court dates after 2 to 3 years. We also have read that the courts have become slower and slower because of the influx of appeals.

My question is, how long is it really for us to receive a court date? And if what do we need to do in order to prepare?

Thanks.

Dear @someoneingermany, thank you for sharing your situation with us in the community, as I am sure that many people are facing the same situation like you. Yes it is sometimes the case that people wait for more than 2 years for their date, however you can fast-track it slighlty by sending letters and referring to the obstacles you and your family are facing with the sttus you are having right now( those obstacles could be health issues, eductaional issues or work issues). If you do not "bother" the court they do not treat your case as urgent. I hope this answers your question, if you need further guidance please do not hesitate to contact the community. Best regards, Nilab
