What type of court fine is this?
So this is a Magistrates Court fine?
Ok. Is this the first failure?
How long has he been paying it?
They are not going to revoke and imprison him for that.
Just attend court and hand himself in for non payment of fines and negotiate a repayment schedule.
One other option, if he is prepared to risk arrest, is to just keep paying it at the agreed rate. He will be in breach but it will take them forever and a day to arrest him and then he would probably have it paid off.
If he wants certainty though, then he needs to go to court. He is likely to be negotiating with the admin office now who will not have a great deal of discretion.
Can I clarify anything for you?
They will levy the costs of bailiffs if bailiffs do act.
There is no way around that.
However, he could negotiate the same deal with bailiffs.
The reality is that the fine will increase but if he cannot pay that is the only option.
All the best.
