Order to attend court for questioning help please

Recommended Posts

This evening, somebody attended my home and gave me a court order from Bradford County Court for an 'Order to attend court for questioning.

 

A judge sitting in the County Court orders that

 

1: Myself T/a 'trading name' the judgement debtor attend at the County Court at Bradford, Civil and Family Centre, <address here> on <date here> before a court officer at <time here> to provide information about the judgement debtor's means and any other information needed to enforce the judgement or order.

 

2: The judgement debtor at the time and place produce at court all documents in the judgement debtor's control which relate to the judgement debtors means of paying the amount due under the judgement or order and which relate to those matters mentioned in paragraph 1.

 

3: The judgement debtor at the time and place answer on oath, all the questions which the court asks and which the court allows the judgement creditor to ask.

 

4: The court where the questioning is to take place may make an order for payment of the costs of the application and the hearing.

 

The amount owing is between £7,000 and £8,000, from a creditor when I ran my sole trader business, since then, In have ceased trading as I have become to ill and now receive enhanced rate PIP due to severe disablement.  I have no money and rely on unemployment benefits and disability benefits.

 

My questions of help are realy as follows.

 

What are the court and/or the creditor allowed to ask me? I know it will be financially themed, ie what my income, outgoings and savings are, but what else are they allowed to ask, what am I required to answer etc etc.

 

What are my rights as a judgement debtor attending an order to attend court for questioning?

 

I know if I do not attend I may receive a committal sentance and ultimatel lead to contemt of court/prison time etc etc, so I will be attending.

 

So am I required to take bank statements, I can and will if needed, no money to hide?

 

Thanks in advance, if anyone has a guide to those in my situation or can answer my questions I would be greatful beyond words.

 

regards,

I haven't, a high court officer visited twice, and on both occasions I told him I was disabled, vulnerable and on benefits, he asked me to email proofs to his office, 

 

I did with the details, only they seem not to have received them now, even though they replied to the email thanking me for sending through my proofs of disability and benefits.

 

As for the original court claim, I was in hospital when the claim was going through court and an order was made in default, no reason to apply for set aside as I owe the money, I just am not in a position to repay it.

Best idea is reply to the court 

I will assume this was a default judgement through northants bulk and because the sum was above £5k the claimant swiched courts to use HCEO.

 

you say it was a sole trade debt? Did you sign a pers guarantee??

who's the claimant?? Not a dca i hope?

Thanks for your reply,

 

It was originally not contested, so they won by default, not sure where, Northampton????

 

It was a sole trader, and yes the account I had with a supplier was in personal name t/a, the debt is a company, a garden machinery machine supplier, no dca, they went to couort directly through their solicitors and instructed High Court Bailiffs when they won.

well HCEO can't do anything - for want of a different word just ignore them in all essence.

theres no right of forced entry on consumer credit debt.

 

on the court order

Nothing to worry about. Quite formal, clerk with black gown, swear an oath and answer standard questions.
