HiThank you for your question and welcome to Just Answer. I will try to help with this. Please RATE my answer OK SERVICE or above.-Could you explain your situation a little more?
Can i not attach the forms they have sent me. I am not sure which option to choose and what I need to send to the courts. I do not want to attend the court date, and I am also under a debt managment programme?
I think you can do that but you will have to email customer services about the procedure which can be fairly slow.You can plead guilty by post normally and they may fine you in absence but there is no way of guaranteeing that unfortunately.Being in a debt management programme is a non issue I'm afraid. Court fines take priority over even council tax and revenue debts. Your debt position will not be considered and a debt management plan certainly would not I'm afraid.Sorry thats probably not the answer you wanted but it is the position that you have and I have a duty to give you truthful and accurate information even though its not what I want to say.Please rate my answer with OK SERVICE or more and then I will continue for free.
your answer does not help me at all, you havent asked what options they have given me, do i need to send a letter?
I'm not sure why you think what options they have given you is relevant?A summons sheet is a summons sheet and they only give you two options.I will be happy to continue with this but please rate my answer OK SERVICE or above.
they have given me three options i am looking at it!
Ok then. Good luck with this.I'm going to opt out at this stage as its clear to me that you are displeased.
