Hello my name is Jamie and I will help you. I am just reviewing your question. This is an email service so there may be delays when responding.

Ok - what you can do is issue a paper claim here.

You form N1:

You will also need to complete form N510:

https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/form-n510-service-out-of-the-jurisdiction

Once you get Judgment in England you can then enforce it in Scotland.

Can I clarify anything for you about this today, please?
