    Facts please, no-one can give advice until they know exactly what the problem is.
    I'd rather be an Optimist and be proved wrong than a Pessimist and be proved right.

    If this is a Council PCN then I fear you have problems.
    If this is from a Private Parking Company then I suspect that you have no problems at all.

    Which is it ?

    Woah not so fast sunny jim ways and means ways and means as they say.

    Post details / photos on here or on pepipoo and im sure we'll be able to get it put back to the initial £35, DONT pay anything till you have had further advice.

    If its got to Bailiff stage this can be put back to the original ammount, but you have to help us to help you by posting ALL the details etc.

    well im a bit embarrsed to say but me and my partner both got a council parking ticket, my partner suffers from depression so i said i would sort them out, but i was putting them off hoping that i could deal with them after we were married and back from our honeymoon, i totally except that the fines were my fault but its going to ruin my wedding and honey moon as in total they were nearly 700 pounds, i paid one as the baliff threatened to take our cars, please could you tell me any info you need because i will gladly get it, i would be really gratefull if anyone could help me, cheers matt

    If you received all the requisite paperwork then there is little anyone can do I fear.
    Did you receive NTO, Charge Certificate and Order for Recovery ?

    The bailiff's will not wait for you.

    Do not keep ignoring this. Bailiff's charges will ramp up swiftly and to an eye watering amount.

    I recommend you you google
    bailiff advice online
    it is an excellent source of advice.
