    nah - not going bankrupt, declaring someone else who's still pissing you
    about after 6 months and not paying

    a latin name IIRC

    Has to be more than £750 owed to you:


    no posh Latin words there, though: you lodge a creditor's petition.

    £2k since December

    what's offpissing is as much that "he's not here ATM" when I know full
    well that he is

    so **** him

    You should get a lawyer or CAD on the case, it is not a job for DIY.
    First you need to serve a statutary demand, if he does not pay you then
    make a bankruptcy petition. At this point he is out of options and must
    either pay or go bust. It is important that the statutary demand and the
    petition are both "served" in the proper manner.

    If he does go bust you will be an unsecured creditor so you may end up
    getting nothing or maybe pence in the pound. OTOH he might have enough
    assets and you might get paid.

    Wouldn't it be easier to apply for a county court judgement? Then
    assuming the judgement goes in your favour - and he still doesn't pay -
    you can apply for an attachment to earnings order so you get your money
    before he does.

    You've got slightly more chance of getting some of your money back that
    way (still not much though, the law seems to favour the 'poor', and also
    thinks non-preferential creditors[1] can get fucked.)

    [1]preference is given to Inland Revenue, Local government,
    gas/water/electric, etc. You might get a share of any money left.

    A friend did that recently to a major investment fund who were tardy
    about giving him back his money. The paid up sharpish. Others may not be
    so lucky as their situation develops.
