The following Dispute Resolution guidance note provides comprehensive and up to date legal information covering:
Note: this Practice Note considers the attachment of earnings order (AE Order) procedure as provided in the new CPR 89 in force with effect from 6 April 2016. It applies to all applications for an AE Order made on/after 6 April 2016.
On 6 April 2016 a new Part, CPR 89 came into force. It replaces the County Court Rules Order 27 (which is no longer in force) governing the making of AE Orders and consolidated attachment orders.
This Practice Note considers what AE Orders are, who can apply for them, when you would wish to do so and steps you should take prior to making your application. It also considers questions such as who is an employee and what is the judgment debtor's home court for the purposes of the regime.
For guidance on how to apply and what a judgment debtor's obligations are on receiving notice of an application for an AE Order, see Practice Notes:
