Hello, I am Law Denning and I am a practising solicitor in a High
Street practice. I have been an expert on this website in UK law since 2008.
During that time, as you appreciate, I have answered thousand's of questions from satisfied users on a variety of subjects.
Because we are all in practice with clients and court and other users, I might not always respond in
minutes, particularly evenings and weekends. Please bear with me in that case.

It is my pleasure to try and assist you with this today. Please bear with me while I gather some further information from you in order for me to be able to advise you fully.

So i am wnt to know what happens next and what they will do with the money which i have paid today

Expert:  James Mather replied 4 years ago.

The £80 gets
credited to your account and they will only collect £416.59p by any other order.

The amount of the
judgement remains because that was ordered before you made the payment

that answer the question? Can I help further? Can I answer any specific points?
