Then an application for legal aid can be made on your behalf in order to secure you free representation at the Magistrates Court. You cannot get free representation in every case, but it may well be worth asking us to see if we can assist you.

Non-Payment of Fines

You may be ordered to pay a fine if:

  • You have been convicted of a criminal offence
  • You have been caught speeding in your vehicle
  • You have not paid your T.V licence, Council Tax or Rail fares.
  • You have not complied with an order of the Court

There are many reasons why you may have been given a fine. Whatever the reason, it is important that you make the payments that have been ordered. A Court may allow you time to pay or allow you to pay by instalments. If you fall behind on payments, arrears may build up and the Court may issue enforcement proceedings against you. This may result in additional costs such as the costs for Bailiffs being added to the amount you owe.

Ignoring the problem will result in you having to go back to court. If a Court decides that you have intentionally refused to pay your fines then you may be forced to undertake unpaid work or you may even be sent to prison.

If you cannot afford to pay your fine because of a change in your financial circumstances, then a Court has the power to reduce the amount you must pay. In some circumstances the Court may even order that you pay nothing.

Our team of experienced lawyers has a track record of successfully arguing for thousands of pounds to be wiped off fines owed by clients, saving them money and stopping the Court sending them to prison.

If you are unemployed, have no income or on low income, public funding is available for you to be represented in these matters. This means that we can assist you without adding to the financial burden you are already facing. You will not have to make a contribution towards the cost of your legal representation.
