Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you.
Is he represented? Is there a court order saying he must pay something?
Did he ever apply to vary the order to pay?
It is a suspended committal order?
Does he accept he owes the money?
When is he due to attend?
Just to be clear, this is ONLY for a debt? Not for breach of a Court order, like an injunction etc?
Ok - you need to check to see what it is for. If it is breach of a Court order for payment that is ok - nothing can happen.
If it is a breach of an injunction that he was not mean to, or had to do something, or breach of an undertaking that is a different matter.
The bundle of documents he has should contain details of what it is said he has done and why.
The matter will be listed for a first hearing and he can admit/denyIf he denies then it will be set down for a trial some time later to decide whether he breached it.If so then the Judge can warn, fine or send him to prison.He may be entitled to legal aid, but he is entitled to know the full evidence against him for any breaches so he can decide what to do
