Hi, welcome to JA, I amCustomerone of legal experts here. My goal is to provide you with the best experience possible and answer any questions which you may have about your current situation. I may not respond immediately, this is because I may need a few minutes to read what you shared above, type and respond to you. Feel free to ask any follow up questions as needed until you are satisfied.
What do you wish to have assistance with?
Thanks for your patience and enquiry.
With the one that is at enforcement you may apply to the court to have that set aside on the basis that you were never served with notice of proceedings. Application to set aside judgments are time sensitive and you ordinarily would have been required to have applied a long time a go. You may however ask the court to exercise its discretion in light of the fact that it has only just been brought to your attention.
With respect to the others, which have not yet been before the court you may use the a similar approach. Advise them of the fact that you had no intentions to not pay and that your failure is solely attributable to you not being made aware of the tickets. Such a position is likely to be accepted by the court if this is a situation where you were not aware of the tickets at all.
Can I clarify anything for you? I hope I have answered your query in a way that is simple and easy to understand. If anything remains unclear, I will be more than happy to clarify it for you. In the meantime, thank you once again for using our services.
I must apologise for the delay in responding. it was inadvertent. I was not aware that you had posted further queries.
Please note the following responses:
1. No I am not saying no CCJ has been entered. CCJ means that a county court judgment has been recorded against a person. If bailiffs have been coming out it means a CCJ has been entered and that the debtor has subsequently gone back to court to get an order allowing them to enforce judgment by way of the bailiffs coming out. You may apply to set aside by using the below form:
Please note though that because of how far gone the process is, you may find it difficult to set aside. However, the law requires for a defendant (being you) to be personally served. If you were not served, then they ought not to have proceeded to obtain judgment against you.
2. If with respect to the other three only letters have been sent, then that means proceedings have not yet commenced.
