Attachment to earnings – what is your experience?

Attachment to earnings – what is your experience?

Recently, we have seen a lot of discussion about using HCEO to recover debts. People started sharing their experiences, give us more inside view on how HCEO works. It may help other people to make better decision in the future.wages

I would like to bring on another enforcement method: an attachment to earnings. After the court received an application about an attachment to earnings, the judgement debtors were sent a form to fill in – their statement means of course they would state their outgoings are greater than their income, based on information they provided, application was dismissed.

Then you put an objection in, and then the matter will be transferred to home court for hearing.

Can anyone share their experience and advice on this please?
Many thanks
Wanda

Hi Robert,
As you had previously jointed our discussion with experience using HCEO, the situation now is my attachment of earing has dismissed by the court, now I got a letter from the court stated “if you disagree with defendant’s statement, write to the court, stating why you object within 16 days , the court will arrange a hearing “. Has anyone been to this type of hearing ?

thanks
Wanda

Sorry, I have no experience of this so I cannot comment on this process. However, if you have reason to believe that the debtor has income or assets they have not declared then I presume this would be the grounds for your objection (but you may need some evidence to back up any reasons you give).
