If you are owed money by a debtor based on the Gold Coast or elsewhere in Australia, our highly experienced Debt Collection Gold Coast based lawyers and support staff can assist you to:
Once the Claim has been served, the debtor will have 28 days from the date of service to either pay the total amount claimed plus costs or settle the Claim for a lesser amount you may be prepared to accept or enter into a payment arrangement on terms to your satisfaction for the total amount claimed plus costs or file and serve a Notice of Intention to Defend and Defence setting out the grounds the debtor disputes your Claim.
We will advise you of the different ways to enforce a Judgment and we will make a recommendation to you about the avenue that may be the best for you. If you do not have any information regarding the assets and liabilities of the debtor, we may suggest certain searches be done or request the debtor to complete a statement of financial position within 14 days. If the debtor does not complete and return that form within the 14 days, you can apply to the Court for a Summons to compel the debtor to attend court to be examined regarding their financial position (which we would do on your behalf). Once we know the debtors financial position, we will recommend the next step. Some of the options are: Enforcement Warrant-Redirection of Earnings (colloquially referred to a garnishee of wages), Enforcement Warrant-Seizure and Sale of Property (where you can seek an order and ask the bailiff to seize real estate or other property owned by debtor such a motor vehicle or boat and have it sold at a public auction, or if the debtor is a company you may issue a creditors statutory demand for payment of debt
