Attachment of earnings

If your debtor is in employment then an attachment of earnings could be an effective method of enforcement open to you.

This is a procedure whereby payments are automatically deducted from the wages of the debtor and paid to the court, if the attachment of earnings is made.

When a full attachment of earnings order is made, the centralised attachment of earnings payment system known as ‘CAPS‘ is responsible for collecting payments.

Whilst this is an effective method of enforcement it is also a long drawn out process. There is a minimum sum beneath which an employee’s wages are not allowed to be attached called the protected earnings rate.
