    Default Entering an N245

    Hi Folks. I need to arrange for an N245 for my friend who is in arrears on a CCJ & is receiving a summons every month. He can afford the repayment (just), but was advised by the banks solicitors, that it would be best for himt to send in an N245, to "reset" the case, so that he wasn't getting the summons every month.
    I have been onto the HMCS website & their is a form on there, but you can't actually fill it in & submit online.
    The case is dealt with at the bulk court in Northampton.
    A couple of questions. Can I get the form for him, from the local court & submit it there, or do I need to get the form & post it to Northampton?
    Would it be best to apply to vary the order to a slightly lower amount? As I said he can afford the payment, but it seems the form only really deals with a variation to the monthly payment.
    Any help aprreciated.

    You can complete an N245 form to apply to reduce the instalment amount and send this to the court. Your application will then be considered. You must pay a 35.00 fee. The cheque or postal orders should be made payable to HMCS. If you are on benefit or cannot afford to pay the fee you may complete the EX160 form, Fee Remission form.

    Don't forget to do an income and expenditure form for your friend, it will help the judge decide how much your friend can afford.

    The form is here:
