  1. When I say madness, I suppose I meant that I can understand the reasons for not keeping or maintaining certain documents after a nuber of years BUT if you are trying to pursue people many years after an event, you would think it makes sense to keep those records to hand. What I find very interesting is that they repeatedly refer to 'the documents you signed' and 'as stated on the documents you signed when applying for legal aid' etc and it turns out they don't have a copy themselves! Not sure how helpful this is to my case but its made me realise that they have been chancing their ar
  2. DX - I hope you are right, it seems madness that they don't have any documents. I will update you on the outcome and thank you for your support and feedback also. Jon
  3. Hi all, I thought I would update the situation. As per the advice on this and other forums, I requested a copy of all the information the LAA hold about me, as is my right under the DPA, especially, the Legal Aid application and associated paperwork. After 2 months of repeated requests, it turns out that they do not have it. My solicitors were legally obliged to retain it for 5 years after my case, and they no longer have it. The court no longer have a copy also. It appears that the LAA don't have a copy of the paperwork they keep saying I received and signed - all
  4. DX100UK - you've really got me laughing here which isn't easy at the moment. What you say is true. Cheers Phil
  5. thanks DX - i forgot to thank you for your suggestion. My question is with the debt being so large, it would take many, many years to pay off the 'debt' - do you think this is not that relevant as they need to 'tick a box' and consider it settled?

  6. I am so sorry - I posted to the 'general debt' forum hoping for more responses - apologies, my mistake. Phillip
  7. I think my main question is this - I used to9 have the money but I had no idea I owed the Legal Aid people anything, so it got spent over the last 3 years, which I can account for. Out of the blue, they want paying a huge sum which I no longer have. If there is no money left - how can I pay them?
  8. Hi Andy - it's connected to my legal aid bill and the Capital Contribution Order from the Legal Aid Agency. Sorry, glad to clarify that!
  9. Hello all, I am very stressed and anxious and feel I have no one to speak to about this. I would be grateful for any help anyone can offer me. I will keep it as brief as possible. Thank you for reading and taking the time out to help me. I was arrested for a very foolish issue in 2009, my assets were frozen so I received legal aid as I was unable, due to the restraint order being in place on my assets, to pay legal fees myself. In 2012, after many, many (expensive) meetings with my solicitor and barrister, I plead guilty and am sentenced to prison. I come home in 2014 and
