Alex Watts :

Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.

Alex Watts :

Could you please explain your situation a little more?

Customer:

I have ILR for 5 year and i intend to apply for naturalisation now, so i was going throught the form and i have some questions regarding the form. One of them is CCJ a civil judgement or penalty?

Customer:

The second part of my question is in my original question

Alex Watts :

It is a civl Judgment

Customer:

Like I said in my original message, a CCJ was matched wrongly to my name

Alex Watts :

Ok, but it is your CCJ?

Customer:

no

Alex Watts :

So it belongs to someone else, it was never your debt?

Customer:

some one had similar name as mine but different date of birth

Customer:

It appeared on my credit file that is how I saw it

Alex Watts :

Ok - then you need to dispute that with the credit reference agency

Customer:

I got equifax to remove it , but I checked Experian and it is still there so I started pursuing them to remove it as well

Alex Watts :

Ok, then if it is not yours you do not need to declare it

Customer:

what if I submit my application and it is still on my credit file

Alex Watts :

You dispute the CCJ with the credit reference agencies

Customer:

as I intend to submit my application this week

Alex Watts :

That is ok because you have already started the dispute process

Customer:

okay

Customer:

so I don't need to mention it

Alex Watts :

Can I clarify anything else for you?

Alex Watts :

No

Customer:

I am self employed and my income is less than what I can pay tax, is it possible that this can affect my application

Alex Watts :

It depends on how they view it and whether they take into account gross or net earnings.

Alex Watts :

I am not an immigration specialist but answered your question as it said is a civil Judgment a CCJ

Alex Watts :

Can I clarify anything else for you regarding your initial post re CCJ's?

Customer:

so what do I do if I want to ask questions relating to immigration issues

Customer:

as I paid £38 for this service , hence I need to get the most of it

Alex Watts :

Can I ask you to post a new question for that so one of my colleagues pick that up.

Customer:

Okay

Alex Watts :

Can I clarify anything else for you?

Customer:

Thank you for answering my first question

Alex Watts :

If not can I ask you to rate my answer to this question before you go, the button should be at the bottom of the screen

Alex Watts :

If you need more help on this question please click reply

Customer:

hope I will not need to pay for posting another question

Alex Watts :

I can't see any billing information, as an expert I only have access to the questions, nothing else

Alex Watts :

But any billing related issues you can contact customer service

Customer:

OKay

Alex Watts :

Thanks.
