to keep a long story short just looking for some advice. just looked at my payslip online, i have an attachment of earnings order they have taken £60 which isnt awfull i guess. however I wasnt notified that this was going to happen. I do have a debt with birstow and sutor for council tax which also has a ccj attached. I missed some payments because my partner lost his job which i did inform them of. they said my smaller payment was not acceptable the full payment was now due and they sent two large bailiffs round which was distressing.So im assuming the aoe is the council debt. my questions are -should they have informed me they were going to do this? -should the courts have sent me a form (some websites have said so) -were the bailliffs wrong to cancel the agreement when we had no means to pay?(we did pay a little bit) -should my employer have told me? thanks in advance and sorry if this is long/badly spelt.
Hi Everyone This is my first post so i apologise if its in the wrong section or I use incorrect terms but i am just a newbie here. I am hoping someone can advise me. I have recently received an attachment of earnings order for a case i knew previously knew nothing about, most probably due to a recent change of address. The case relates to an old business i used to run and i think i have a good chance of winning if i get my day in court. I took advice from Business Debtline and today submitted an application to set aside today. Whilst at the county court offices i mentioned that my first notice of the ccj was the attachment of earnings form, i asked for advice on what to do with this form as there are no instructions relevant to my scenario listed on there. I didnt want to ignore at the punishments for not replying don't sound very fun but also i dont want to fill it in as it would seem to me like an admission of guilt? The employee at the time said that a note would be made on the file that i had applied for the judgement to be set aside and that if i received any more letters that it would just be the system crossing over until the application was dealt with. I went on my merry way satisfied that I wouldn't be chased for payments before my application had been dealt with. i then received a call from another employee saying that i still need to fill in the form and just put a note on that i had applied for judgement to be set aside. My worry is that i do this that a) i am essentially accepting the debt and it may affect a case against the claim b) my employer may be contacted un-necessarily before i get a chance to defend myself in court c) i may end up paying for something i don't believe i owe before i get a chance in court surely i am not the only person ever to have been in this situation? any advice or experiences would be greatly appreciated. i have been given an allowance of an extra couple of days to submit the form (still a time pressure as received the letter 3 days after it was dated) thanks in advance if any can contribute
