I signed an individual payment agreement in January 2010 as I felt threatened and felt I had no choice but to do so.Then the IP took me to court in March 2010 (a month after my discharge) to try and have a court order to make me pay £450 p.m.
On the day the case was to be decided on, the IP withdrew the claim. The judge told me that it was over and I didn't have to worry about it any more.
There was no court order to make me pay anything, only the agreement that I feel I was blackmailed into signing in Jan 2010.
