Course One - Obtaining A CCJ For Undisputed Debts

If someone owes you money, what can you do if they fail to pay? To force a debtor to pay, you need the legal authority to enforce and the first step is obtaining a CCJ.

A CCJ is an order by a Judge compelling the debtor to pay the sum specified.

If the debtor still doesn't pay, you can then take steps to enforce it (for enforcement see course 2).

Course Overview

The process of obtaining a CCJ can be daunting if you haven’t used the courts before but we teach you all you need to know, step by step, from sending the initial letter of claim, to filing the documents at court to getting the CCJ from the court.
