Hello, I am a contractor who agreed to pay back a client the sum of $1500 per month for a total of $12000 debt I have. Over a period of 6 months, I've paid back $4500 but payments are not always by the due date we agreed on. However I have tried to pay as much as I can but due to work being very slow at the moment I'm struggling to make any payment for the last 6 weeks. Now I've received a seizure notice from the courts for my vehicle, my work car or my wife's car. What can I do?

Hi Dale,

The original agreement, was that by court order? What kind of agreement is that?

Did you explain to the client your financial situation and negotiate a new payment arrangement?

Did the client issue you with a notice for payment or overdue payment for the last 6 weeks' payments?

Further, is your wife's car jointly owned? Under whose name is the car registered?
