Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I think I would be able to do a bulk payment of about £700 then do the rest installments. but i'm not working

Ok. Do you have any previous convictions?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
yeah 2 for common asult

How long ago?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
the first 2009 and the other 2011 and I got a conditional discharge and about £120 fine both times

Thanks. you will not go to prison then.

You will probably receive a fine or maybe a community order. I do not think it ca be marked by a conditional discharge though.

There is no chance of prison.

They may just let you repay the amounts in question.

Can I clarify anything for you?


Customer: replied 1 year ago.
oh I forgot to tell you I found my p45 it wasn't September it was October. so it worked out to be 4150. thank you for the advice

It won't make much difference.

It is a low amount and your other convictions are dissimilar.
