How Long Does The Legal Debt Collection Process Take?
The process takes between 1-2 months, including arbitration. During this time, a person is appointed by the court to talk to both parties to see if they can resolve the issue without the need for a judge.
If the subject doesn’t pay, the judgement must be entered and enforced including the use of county court bailiffs. You can also pay to upgrade to a Sheriff who has more powers than a county court bailiff. Sheriffs have the power of arrest and can keep the debtor in a cell to be asked about payment.
