    CCJ - Variation of amount

    CCJ - Variation of amount 9th Sep 17 at 6:47 PM
    Evening all

    After 10 years of paying off a substantial amount of money to all our creditors via a DMP we are finally seeing the light at the end of the tunnel!

    One of the debts we have is a CCJ that was set by the court (and paid every month for 10 years since) at around 35 a month. To put that figure in context we are paying over 10 times that amount to the other creditors in total. As we are approaching the end of all the other debts I really don't want the money we pay to the other creditors (the 350+) to go to the CCJ payment (I now that sounds daft, but they put us through hell getting that CCJ against us and would not listen to any of our reasoning or pleading.) I don't want to pay them a penny more than the CCJ has set.

    My question is - once the other debts are paid how easy is it for the CCJ to be reviewed by the creditor and or the court so they can reset it to a much higher amount to pay off sooner? Can they do this or are they just going to have to get what the CCJ says until it's paid off?

    The judgement stays at that amount unless either you, or the creditor, challenge it.

    You would be asked to fill in a new budget most likely, just make sure your budget shows 35 available per month to pay it.

    After ten years its not going to be changed now.
