Customer Question
Hi. I got cut...

Hi. I got cut off too soon last time. I had a question about a court order that was issued to my daughter in 2013 for a loan death of $22,000 which she took out here in Perth, but the the company were based in SA & therefore it was issued from the Magestrates court in SA. Can she be arrested or imprisoned for non payment ?

Lawyer's Assistant: What state are you in? It matters because laws vary by location.

WA

Lawyer's Assistant: What steps have you taken so far?

None. There is also another court issued payment of $ 3,400 from a Perth magistrates court that has also not been paid. Can she be arrested or imprisoned for this.

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

Yes. Can the amounts be negotiated What can be done. What can happen if nothing done.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
