1. There are no set rates laid down for an instalment order. It depends upon the income accruing to the debtor. Accordingly, if your debtor earns 250,000 per annum, you will be looking at an instalment order for 10-15,000 per month. whilst not all the debtor's income can go in an instalment order, the debtor is simply left with enough to live on. Not a luxury living amount. In making an instalment order, all assets of the debtor are considered, but it is primarily the income levels which are considered. So, I would suggest if they have other assets, such as bank savings, that you garnishee these assets in addition to getting an instalment order. It makes no difference if the debtor turns up or not. The making of the order is not dependent upon the debtor turning up. I would not proffer evidence of the debtor's assets at any stage unless you want to prove the debtor is lying on his affidavit made in respect of the order for Discovery in aid of Execution. So you should hold your fire on this issue. Finally, whilst you cannot compel the debtor to work to pay you off, given that this person earns 250,000 per annum, it will be small beer for them to pay off a judgment for 30,000.
