Serving A N39 Order to Attend Court

What’s it for? Ordering a debtor to attend court for questioning.

Once an application has been made to the court, the judgement debtor is ordered to attend court for questioning. They will then be questioned on oath. Questions shall be about their finances and employment status.
Income and expenditure for the debtor and their dependents shall be questioned. Failure to obey this order may eventually result in the debtor being sent to prison. The N39 order must be served at least 14 days before the hearing date and a professional process server can ensure speed of personal service.
