I am a single mum working part time to make ends meet I am at the court house now

Ask the court to allow you pay by instalments and explain your personal financial circumstances. That is all you can do? How much do you owe?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I think it was around £300

Ask to pay this by instalments on the basis of your financial circumstances, say, £10 a week.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Ok thank you so much. Hopefully they will be understanding I am just scared

You’re welcome. Don’t forget to leave a positive rating so that I am credited for my time.
