Please help. RE: CCJs and court fees

Please move to correct section.

Here goes...
I have been searching my credit file for the first time and it appears I have been given a CCJ a year ago for an unpaid Barclaycard which exceeded its limit and wasn't paid. I moved house months before the CCJ was issued so this is news to me.

1. What would happen now? I want to sort this debt out so how do I find out about the judgement/money agreed to pay back etc.
2. What about court costs? I'm not too worried about the CCJ because it's a civil judgement and not a criminal one. Fine it's made my credit rating bad but not paying court costs is a inprisonable offence right? What is the worst that can happen legally. Could a warrant for arrest be made. I presume the court would have demanded money after the CCJ was issued and this has gone to my old address which I think is the one the electoral register? Any one know how long that would take and if they are strict/what happens/ANYTHING?
