I work for a company that has a debtor owing £4,364.86. We have a Judgment against him, a warrant of execution and the baliffs have been out (although about 12 months ago). We have also issued a "Order to attend questioning" - which has been completed.


The question l ask is what would l get if l paid and completed an "Attachement Of Earnings" form to get him to pay monthly direct to us from his wages.


He currently "states" he earns £200.00 per week. I know the cost of getting this done is £100.00 but l am happy to pay that if the guy ends up paying (for example) £15.00 a week.


Any advice is helpful.

If you apply for an AOE the court will send a form to him which he has to fill in his incomings and outgoings. The court will then determine what he can afford to pay - it could be as little as £5 or £10 per month - albeit you will be guaranteed to get the payment as his employer cannot ignore the court order.

Sorry about this, I saw this thread when the OP posted, and meant to respond, but I forgot. Ell-enn is almost 100% correct. The only problem is you need to know who his employer is, and if he is self-employed, then it is probably problematic to get the money out of him.


An AoE is only good where he's employed by a reliable employer.


Whilst technically the employer must follow the AoE, enforcing that on the employer is complicated - in my experience.
