Hi Everyone,


I'm not sure if this is in the right place but if not, perhaps one of the site team can allocate correctly.


I am part way through a CCA challenge process.


I have sent out all the usual letters and received the normal replies. I have issued default notices to 5 of 6 alleged creditors.


I have issued 3 SARs and received 2 replies to date, the third is still within the 40 days.


I understand the merits of DIY and an happy to continue on this route.


I have recently been made redundant so have the necessary motivation - more details on the above available if required.


My employer has now approached me with a proposal. My UK position has been determined redundant but a proposal has been made for me to go contract in overseas facilities. This will involve me working for significant periods overseas - initially, Brunei has been suggested although other places are also available.


My problem is that I will be away for months at a time, my post will still be delivered to my home, which I will rent out, whilst I live in hotels or on board ships.


As I see it, I have 3 options:


Give up for now, pay the arrears and restart once I am in a more stable position.


Carry on and risk a CCJ and attachment in my absence - I know this could be overcome but it is a long and expensive process.


Pass the matters over to a third party. I have read extensively of the merits of DIY and the risks associated with CMCs.


I don't really want to give up, I don't really want to pass this over to a CMC but I'm not sure which is the best route to go and if there are decent CMCs to use - I also don't have the time to do the research necessary.


Anyone got any advice - I need to move fairly quickly.

How soon does your employer want/expect you to jet off?


Within 1 month, possibly less. We are still negotiating but I get the impression that its Hobson's choice. Work overseas or not work at all. Financially, I have to go and I'm pretty sure they know this.


I think I will be pressured to travel sooner rather than later. I know the projects involved as I have worked on them in the past - from the UK.
