  1. I read that you can include all CCJ's in one application - saving money on fees and making just one monthly payment. Irrelevant as total debt has to be below £5k. Husband earns more than the threshold, so I didn't qualify for help with the fee. I followed the advice given here and sent the form and fee last week. I got a call on yesterday to say that as soon as the cheque clears, the application will be processed. In the meantime, he said he would make sure that the bailiffs were aware my son was autistic and would ask them not to visit. I don't know if that will actually work, but that's what he said. If my low monthly offer is accepted, I certainly won't miss a payment. I'm not destitute, I just don't want my husband to have to pay for my stupidity. I want only my income to be counted and the money payable to come from me. Thanks again for the good advice.
  2. Back at it this morning. It doesn't ask for copies on the form, just wondered if it may when they receives the form. Out of my £286.65 monthly income from CA, my outgoings are £285ish. I can tweak that a little so I've offered £5 per month. I haven't put anything in the "others living in my home give me" section, as my husband just pays for everything. Is that right? I'll enclose a cheque for the £50 fee, and it asks if I can pay anything off the ccj - should I enclose a cheque for £5 too? Is that also payable to the court or Cabot? Thanks for your help so far.
  3. I've just had a look at the EX160 form and it doesn't look like I'm exempt from the fee as I don't get UC, IS or ESA. It asks for my income (not to include Carer's Allowance), so there'd be nothing to put in that section - in which case it's asking for my husband's income - he earns over the threshold they mention, so there's no point. I'll just ask him to pay the fee if and when the variation is successful (if that's how it works). Thanks Anydorch for the link to the trust register. I'll look at that tomorrow. I haven't even filled out N245 entirely - I'm feeling a little overwhelmed at the minute, and I've got things I need to get on with today. My son's already whittling and asking me if I'm OK, so I'm obviously visibly stressed out. I've tried to reassure him I'm fine, but I just want this to be over. I feel like a pain coming back here with all these questions, and that's just this first form. Will I need to send in a copy of my Carers Allowance letter, and my bank statement to show the payment going in? Obviously, with the money hubby pays in for housekeeping etc, my bank account will look healthy.
  4. I pay £50 per month to CT arrears so I'll list that in priority debts. I only have details of one CCJ (this one) and Northants couldn't tell me about the others as I don't have case/claim numbers. Does this mean I'll have to check my credit report? I've been reluctant to do that as it will definitely alert any other creditors to me, and so far they've just been fishing. Can I just sort out each CCJ as they crop up instead? At least I'll know what to do and how to fill in the forms.. I know you can bundle CCJ's together if they are less than £5k, but mine are over that amount. My head feels like it's going to explode!
  5. So, first few of many questions - no doubt. It asked about current account (whether overdrawn or in credit) - it's in credit by £68, so I've put that (Carers allowance went in yesterday). Then it's asking about savings accounts. Now, I do have one which hubby transfers savings into - approx £400. Do I put that? I don't want to say I don't have one, but it's not my money that goes in. Should I open a savings account in husbands name? It was easier to pay it in to mine as I had one open already. Next stumbling block, it asks about rent, CT, utilities, water, food, clothing etc - as my husband pays these (apart from uitilities which I pay by DD), do I put them down as my expenses?? There's no box to write down an explanation as to why I'd have such high outgoings with only a small income. Next it asks about priority debts - as I explained, I stopped paying those over 2 years ago. Do I now have to contact them all and make offers of payments? The only debts I pay are a small CT debt and utilities from my previous address. Next - court orders. I know I have at least one other CCJ, which again I have avoided paying, so don't have any information about. I really don't know how to fill this out, do I? Should I add a cover letter to explain all of this? Thanks. p.s - this is only form 1 **what should I put down as an offer?
  6. Ok, I'll print the forms off now and start filling them in. I'm hoping to not need much assistance with it, as I don't want to bog the thread down with 'unhelpful to others' stuff.
  7. I called the Northants bulk office, but I was in queue position 31, and after 20 mins, only got down to 23! I didn't have the time to hang on as I was helping my husband at work. Instead, I called the county court enforcement office dealing with the Warrant of control. A helpful lady found the CCJ and told me it was Cabot for an original debt with New Day.. I don't know who New Day are, but presumed they may have been a parent company for the credit card. I explained I wanted to apply for a variation but she said , as I didn't recognise the name, I should get in touch with them and ask for details of the debt. In the meantime, she hadn't sent the warrant to the bailiffs yet and would wait for me to get back in touch. I explained that I have a 21 year old autistic son at home, and as I'm very often helping my husband, I couldn't have bailiffs turning up at our door and trying to deal with him or his younger brother. She said she would make a note of that, and told me to get back to her when I'd spoken with Cabot. My question is, what do I do now, how do I contact them? I'm nervous about calling them and I'm not sure what I need to say/find out. Thanks for your help so far, guys.
  8. Hi again and thanks for the links. I've looked at the form and I have to list expenses - obviously as I only get £64 per week, it's fairly obvious I wouldn't be able to afford the rent, council tax, food and bills without listing my husband's income. Isn't that going to be a problem? I'm not actually sure how to fill this in without it looking contradictory.
  9. Hello and thanks for replying. I'm trying to be calm and rational but it's not so easy! I may not have been clear as I was on a bit of a ramble but the ccj's were issued while I was at my old address. I stupidly chose to ignore them and of course, they followed me to my new address. There's no bailiff name - it's a notice of issue of warrant of control from county court - creditor is named as Cabot financial. I know I'm on a low income but won't they still want to know about husband's income? I only get carers allowance and no tax credits etc, so they'll know my husband has to be paying for me, it's only £64 per week after all. Haven't I left it too late to try and negotiate with the court? The ccj's were issued last year. I'm thinking they won't have any sympathy for me, and why should they? I knew I was in threat of a ccj, I knew I'd got them, and I chose to ignore them. Why I thought that was the best option, I don't know. Still, if you say that's what I need to do, I'll have a look at the form section you posted and get on to it first thing. Thanks for trying to put my mind at rest, I really appreciate it.
  10. Hello. I've got myself in a bit of trouble today I received a warrant of control in the post. I'm in debt with credit cards about 2 years ago, I became unable to continue paying my bills so I just stopped and put all letters that arrived in the bin. Burying my head in the sand has done me no favours obviously, I have 2 ccj's, each for about 4k. There are other debts but these are the only ones to apply for a ccj so far. I only opened this letter because it had a local court name stamped on the envelope. I married shortly after I stopped paying my bills and while my husband knows I was in debt before we got married, I haven't told him about the ccj's yet. We're not linked financially, so I know he's not actually liable to pay my debt - even so, how do I explain to the bailiffs that it's just my income to take into account? What will they want to take from me for the debt? My husband is self employed, and I moved in with him after we married. The tenancy is in his name only. Everything is his, apart from my clothing and a few bits of furniture and cooker etc. I'm not working but get £64 per week carers allowance benefit as I have an autistic son who lives with us and my younger son. I can't afford to pay the £4k before next Monday and my husband doesn't earn enough to cover rent, bills, food and my debt. I'm just so scared and am dreading them turning up. I can't eat and I feel so anxious - not just because I caused this with my own stupidity, but I don't want to be a disappointment or burden to my husband. Also, bailiffs knocking on the door and the tension it will cause will make my son highly anxious. I'm not sure how to explain this to a 21 year old with autism. It will be my fault that he's distressed and it's eating me up. I'm hoping I haven't left it too late to try and sort this out. I can't have bailiffs coming and taking my husband's van or belongings - he nor I can prove that they're his things as he's had them for so long that receipts etc have long gone. Also, my son has a Motability car that I'm registered to drive, can they take that? Please, can someone offer me some advice?
