Alex. I have another question about being pursued by CWD

Resolved Question:

Hi Alex. I have another question about being pursued by CWD for a UAE credit card debt. I have tried replying to our previous conversation but it keeps changing the status to finished?
CWD have issued proceedings so I am planning to return the notice of acceptance stating that I am planning to contest jurisdiction based on the details you have provided to me.
Do I then have a further 14 days to provide details of the reasons why I am contesting jurisdiction?

Alex Watts :

Hello and thanks for requesting me.

Alex Watts :

You need to file a notice saying you dispute the jurisdiction because:

Alex Watts :

1) The agreement is not governed by UK law

Alex Watts :

2) The agreement was signed in UAE

Alex Watts :

3) There is no treaty that allows for recipricol enforcement

Alex Watts :

4) The substantive contract took place in UAE

Alex Watts :

5) The agreement is not governed by UK law

Alex Watts :

6) There is no case law on all fours to say it can be tried here

Alex Watts :

Does that help?

Customer:

Thanks Alex. I will file the notice contesting jurisdiction and let you know how I get on.
