Hi. Putting aside whether the advice is wrong or right, as I would need more information for that, it would be nearly impossible to get this case listed at the minute due to Covid. However even if it was listed that Court would rely on the fact that whilst you were given advice, the final decision was made by yourself. So, I'm sorry but I dont think you would be successful in asking for your decision to be changed but there is nothing to stop you speaking to the Court and seeing what could be done.

All the best
