Attachment of Earnings Order – What Should I do?

“the judgement creditor obtained a judgement against you in the Northampton County Court and as you have failed to pay at ordered, the judgement creditor has applied for an attachment of earnings order requiring your employer to pay the judgement.
Failure to return the reply form and the statement that means is a punishable offence. It will result in your employer being contacted and you may also be sent to prison for up to 14 days.”
Now this is a rather serious letter from the courts!! Ignoring this type of letter it’s certainly not advisable!
The credit though has not done their homework, as the defendant is self-employed.
In this particular case the relevant reply form and statement of means has been sent to the courts. The defendant is offering £7.00 per month against the debt of £9554.
It is also possible to come to an agreement with the courts without your employer being contacted.
