Hi Rosemary, welcome to the site. My name is XXXXX XXXXX I will help you with your question.
Once you have have judgment, then you can apply to the Court for what is called an attachment of earnings order.
This would require a sum of money (decided by the Court) to be paid by the employer directly to you from the defendant's salary.
It's a very common application.
Sounds easy. Would I ask for this order at the first stage of obtaining Judgment or is this another court hearing???
It's often done on paper and a formal hearing isn't always required. But once you have judgment, you just fill out the forms, and you would likely just get the order. It's pretty simple to be honest. There is a useful explanatory booklet here for you: http://www.justice.gov.uk/downloads/courts/centralised-attachment-earnings-payment/ae_e0507.pdf
Thankyou. One more question:- What if his employer doesn't or refuses to transfer funds??? R
His employer cannot refuse - it is a court order compelling him to do it. If he doesn't, then he faces being in contempt of court.
Thank you. Speak with you again. Rosemary
