First: the website (Just answer uk) doesn't recognise my email address:[email protected]
Second: the bailiff isn't allowed to put the order to attend court through the letter box. He must hand it to him after the person identifies himself.
Yes, I am in the UK. I have spoken to the bailiffs and this is what they told me. Pretty hopeless. The debtor had received letters from the court asking to pay me money back or something to that effect, so he was forewarned. If he does not let them in, identify himself, they are powerless. They can't force themselves in.
He does not own the house he lives in. The car is likely registered not in his name. What to do next?
The house isn't his. The car may not be either. What next?
What is a third party debt order?
How can I possibly know which bank he holds his money in. He is a Nigerian citizen and might hold his money there. If he even comes to court he might not disclose this. I only know which bank from his cheque bounced from.
How do I instruct the court when I receive the form them. The attachment of earnings order is no use and I have to ask the court precisely what I want to happen next. They don't advise.
His source of income is not known. His wife works as a care assistant, but whether he has an employer is not known. He might only run an illegal export business of used electrical goods to Nigeria from a container park. That is all I know. If he does not have an employer then an attachment of earnings order is no good. He has plenty of cash -he was seen with wads of money not long ago.
Is that form exclusively for a substituted service?
If this is posted through his letter box and just ignored by him, what will happen next? No new information on his circumstances will have been revealed.
On approval of substituted service does the court automatically issue a suspended committal order?
Posting form N244 will involve a fee-how much?
If approved, issuing a suspended committal order is another separate process with a different form and another fee-how much?
Is this a 2 step 2 fees best option or have I misunderstood?
How long will it take process? Days or weeks? Do I send a cheque to court? Is the form difficult to fill in? I already have it.
On form N224 there is mentioned a draft of the order one is applying for as an attachment, which I haven't got.
What should that contain?
Form asks for method of application by which it is to be dealt with ie.,
at a hearing or without or at a telephone hearing. which option is right?
Form asks how long the hearing will last( hours or minutes?). I don't know, so what to tick?
Form asks for any fixed trial data or period details. Again I don't know, so what to write?
Form asks what level of Judge the hearing needs. Again I don't know, so what to write?
The form looks easy, but it is not to me!
I would appreciate guidance on this.
What should a draft of the order contain and is it necessary?
