I have a general form of judgement/ order won in 2008

Customer Question

I have a general form of judgement/ order won in 2008 for a substantial amount of monies owed to me . He has never paid a penny, I could never locate him and he always worked as self employed. Is this order still valid as I have located him and I am aware he is now in full time employment?
Any help would be gratefully received ?

hi thank you for your question and welcome. My name is ***** ***** I will assist you. When was the last time you made a demand for the judgment. Did you ever write to his last known address demanding payment? Kind regards AJ

Hi AJ, The court did in 2008 but this was returned undelivered. He never came to the final hearing at court and I didn't know where else to turn. Thank you

Thank you. Have you taken any action since the judgment was granted? You may be statute barred from claiming this unless you can prove you have tried to make a demand for the Judgment in the last 6 years? Kind regards AJ
