Anyone can fall on hard times and find themselves in debt, and if you've had notice of impending attachment of earnings order you should know exactly what you're dealing with. Life can throw up many different crappy circumstances, unannounced, unwanted, and out of our control. If it does, burying your head is the last thing you should be considering. Debt is a bitch that needs to be tackled head on, make no mistake about that. The fact of the matter is if you have outstanding debt, one or more of your creditors could take court action against you and obtain a County Court Judgment (CCJ) or another court order.

Should you fail to meet the requirements of the court order, your creditor can crack on with taking further action against you to retrieve the cash you owe. There are several ways they can go about doing this. If you’re working, your creditor could well try to obtain a court order that takes money from your wages which is paid directly to them - you have no say, not a peep, it'll never hit your bank. This is what they call an attachment of earnings. I'm going to give you a no nonsense guide of what happens if your creditor(s) apply for an attachment of earnings order and if there is anything you can do to prevent, or change the terms of the order.

A bailiff has the right to take away some of your possessions, with the exception being anything you cannot live or work without. They can sell any possessions they lift from your home to raise money that is paid to your creditors for your outstanding debt.  As I mentioned earlier, they can be a court official or employed by a private company. Bailiffs usually won’t get involved unless the case has already been to court and you were unable to come to an agreement with your creditors.
