I had problems with my council tax last year where they basically didnt bill me. They have now gained an attachment of earnings order on my salary for 2 different bills. This means that today they garnished about 34% of my money and have left me in the preverbial (sp sorry!).

 

My question is, whilst I understand that it needs to be paid, I need to be able to afford to live and feed my kids - can I do anything about getting this amount reduced as quite literally after bills, I have minus £50 for food, gas and electric!!!

Can you do anything about an attachment of earnings order once it's been made?

 

If you can't afford the payments

 

If you think too much money is being taken out of your wages, you can tell the court you don't agree with what your creditor has asked for.

 

You have 14 days from the date the original order is made to do this. If the order has been in place for some time and your circumstances change, you can still apply to the court to change the terms of the order. A hearing will be arranged and a judge may make a different order.

I dont know when the original order was made, literally the first I knew of it was when I had my payslip handed to me this morning :(

Find out the details of the liability order and then make an application to vary as per the above link.
