How did you come to do it unintentionally?
I need the information I asked for?
Ok. That isn't unintentional then.
Are you prepared to risk going to court?
Well then if you can't comply with restorative justice the only option is to go to court.
You could offer a lesser sum. You could offer payment in instalments.
The truth is that even if you went to court she might well get that sum anyway if she can show that is what it will cost. A complete respray is probably the only way to resolve this so that she is in the position she was before I'm afraid.
I would try to negotiate. Going to court is not likely to help.
Can I clarify anything for you?
Yes, talk to the officer in the case.
If the quote is excessive make that point. If not but you need time to pay then ask for that.
Yes, that could happen.
If they do then I suppose it will have to go to court. There are no ways of preventing that.
You can use the duty solicitor.
How long you will be kept in depends. I would imagine they would just make an appointment to surrender voluntarily.
I'm happy to continue with this but please rate my answer.
