Enforcement Of Civil Debt

In the event that a judgment has been entered and the debt remains unpaid, the Plaintiff has the right to enforce payment of the debt. A judgment will only be enforced at the request of the Plaintiff.

All methods of enforcement attract Court fees.

All Court fees paid for enforcement can be added to the debt and are recoverable from the debtor.

These fees can be viewed in the current Civil Court Fees Scale.

Most common forms of enforcement include:

  • Attachment of Debt
  • Attachment of Earnings Order
  • Instalment Order
  • Warrant to Seize Property
  • Summons for Oral Examination

Information about each is available from the links in the left hand menu.
