The problem here is that unless
this is Small Claims Court, the cost of bringing an action in the family Court
is going to be more than you are arguing over.
You could try issuing a small
claims court claim for £400 www.moneyclaim.gov.uk but it might get
referred to the family Court because of what is involved so you need to make sure it is just a money claim.
going to make a suggestion to you which
sometimes works and is probably about as powerful a message as you can send.
Instead of using the online
the court form N1 , you can also get explanatory notes
and send it, duly completed,
with a covering
letter with words to the effect of, here are the proceedings that I have
already completed and if you do not roll over and pay up, they will be going
off to the court on a certain date. Give them until a particular date rather
than a number of days and then there can be no dispute over when the deadline
I would not send that form off
to court but I
would use the online system because it saves you 10 quid!
You can add in what extra costs you like.
If you lose, these are the costs you will lose.
Does that answer the question? Can I
assist any further?
I am happy to follow up any individual
point you make
