Hello, my name is ***** ***** I am a qualified lawyer happy to help you today.
There is no timescale to pay back a CCJ however it will be wiped from your credit record after 6 years. If the payments cover several months then that is still OK - it would be up to the claimant to apply to the court for a charging order on your property (if you own a property) if it will take several years to repay the CCJ. You asked about how they got the court order - I presume you mean the CCJ. They have issued a claim against you and this might have been at a former address (if you moved house and did not update them). If you feel they have obtained their CCJ in an underhand way then you can apply to the court to set aside the CCJ - but I would only recommend you do that if you dispute the debt. Otherwise the court is unlikely to agree to set it aside.
I hope this helps - if you can please accept the answer and give me a 5 star rating (there should be a button on your screen to do this), I can answer follow up Q&A's at no extra charge and Just Answer will credit me for helping you today.
