Ask a Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Hi Alex. No, I haven't. How would I go about doing that? What would be my reasons for doing that? Is there any reason why that would not be approved? The WUP was served on Friday, and I made full payment on Saturday, including fees.
Would doing that cancel it altogether and stop them advertising?
I would have answered sooner but it didn't send me an email. I will check this site through the day.
Yes - you should get a statutory demand first of all before a winding up petition.
This is because they must prove that the debt is owing.
Therefore they should issue this which you could have applied to set aside.
However in terms of the return date, there should be a Court date on it.
You need to attend Court and apply to have the petition dismissed.
Otherwise it could, although unlikely be granted.
But go to date on the documents and apply to have the petition dismissed.
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?

Let me answer this one by one:
Does this mean they will not advertise? - They are required to advertise as part of the petition process
Does it mean they also cannot advertise? - They can advertise that you are being petitioned, but not that you have been wound up
If I get something in writing from them saying they will not advertise, will that suffice, or should I receive an official form? - Yes you can get this in writing. If you do and they do advertise then you can sue for breach of contract.
If they do state they will not advertise, is it prudent for me to seek an injunction to stop it anyway, and how would I go about that? - No because if they agree they will not and then do, you can sue for breach of contract and claim loss and damage as a result.
