Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.

We are a question and answer site and cant represent you, but can certainly give you some advice/guidance.

The fine was for a man died on one of our sites he fell from the scaffolding.
Expert:  Jamie-Law replied 10 months ago.

Was the fine Imposed by the court?

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
Southwark crown court.
Expert:  Jamie-Law replied 10 months ago.

Ok. I assume the fine has not been paid?

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
No as i was bankrupt at the time we went to court and I am now registered disabled so I never had enough money to pay. I got in touch with the court a few months a go, and they agreed to take £20 a month out of my benefits which they started taking,and then 3 weeks ago they came back to me to say they can't do that anymore as I was given the wrong information.
Expert:  Jamie-Law replied 10 months ago.

Ok. Well you don't need to worry, when you go to court the judge will fix a level of repayment.

You won't be sent to prison for it, as you need to show you are a won't pay, rather than can't pay.

The court won't leave you with nothing to live on, they would rather work with you.

You don't need to worry about the expense of representation. The court will just fix repayments that you can afford.

They may even write some off if you attend court.

Can I clairfy anything for you about this today please?

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
I got a letter on Friday saying as I've not paid in full to give my reasons as to why I should not be sent to prison so what should I write ?
Expert:  Jamie-Law replied 10 months ago.

Well you won't be sent to prison. Just write back and explain the situation, you are disabled and can offer £20

Does that clairfy?

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
I will do what you advised me to do thank you.
