However if court proceedings are necessary we will guide you through the whole process carefully, pursuing a robust stance on your behalf to conclusion, including the issue of emergency injunction relief, if considered necessary, to protect your legitimate business interests.

The first stage in attempting to recover your debt is to send the debtor a letter of claim. Realistically, the debtor has 3 options at this stage: To pay in full – If payment in full is simply received following the letter of claim then we will limit our fee to £50.00 (excl. VAT). To dispute the debt – If the other party raises a dispute at any point, then we will assess the points in dispute together with you and advise you on your further options. If the debt is disputed then your case will no longer fall within our undisputed debt collection fixed fee scheme and your will be provided with further costs estimates for the options available to you. To fail to respond – If the debtor fails to respond to the letter of claim at all, then the claim will be issued at Court. If there is no response after issue, then we will ask the Court to grant you Judgment in default against the debtor. If the debtor still fails to pay upon receiving a County Court Judgement (CCJ) then we will advise you upon the enforcement options available to you and the costs that entails to pursue the debtor further.
Regrettably, some parents and family members may find themselves in dispute with Social Services about the way in which they are looking after their children. In some cases, Social Services may even want to take their children into Local Authority care, a distressing situation for any parent or carer. At Elliot Mather we have a team of specialists, and 7 of our solicitors in the child care team are members of the Law Society’s Children Panel Accreditation Scheme, which recognises their expertise in this area of law. Membership of the Children Panel allows them to represent both children as well as parents and other family members in Care Proceedings, and other complex Children Act proceedings.
