County Court Judgment Proceedings

A County Court judgment (CCJ) is a Court order instructing a debtor to pay the money owed to a creditor. It is one of the actions a creditor can take as part of the debt collection process. If you are considering applying to a Court for a CCJ we can provide you with our advice and expertise.
