Debt help where money is owed as a result of court fines

If you’ve had court fines imposed on you, you must prioritise this above all other debts. Courts have significant powers to collect fines, including the use of bailiffs and, in the most serious of cases, you could face imprisonment.

You should attend all court hearings and be prepared to communicate with the court as to your essential living costs. This will help them in determining how much you should repay.

Worried about debts that won't go away?


Debt help tips for tackling court debts:

  • If you’re unable to meet your repayment obligations on your court fine, you should speak with the fines officer and request a reduction in your repayments.
