Example of a Bundle Index

An Index needs to be prepared for the Final Hearing Bundle.

The Index should be drafted by the Applicant and sent to the Respondent for approval. The Respondent should be given the opportunity to add any documents that they believe are missing.

The responsibility for preparing the Bundle is that of the Applicant, with the exception being when the Applicant is self representing and the Respondent has a solicitor.

The format should be based on the below which is a fictitious example.

We can help you with your Bundle at a fraction of the cost of solicitors.
