I've had an ongoing court battle which I won outright. The bailiffs recently went in and found that the debtor didn't have means to pay and didn't have anything that could be removed and sold. Apparently everything in the debtors property is owned by the debtors parent (who lives in a different property). I feel like this was highly likely a tactical move made by them as they knew this was coming. But I cannot prove that. It states on the letter that I received that the bailiff cannot do more unless I can provide further information to re-issue the warrant. Basically, proof that they own other goods or have other funds that could be collected.
Where do I stand with this? Is there anything I can do? I have no information about any other possessions etc. Could I just wait 12 months and get the warrant reissued so the bailiffs can try again?
I'm in England.
I have a monetary order against someone. He is refusing to pay it and just ignoring me. I'm filling out the form for a payment hearing. I'm not sure what to put under
>You are required to bring the following records and other things:
For garnishing I could use his employers contact information, and his banking information. Should I include these things? Are there anything else I should include? How specific must I be, is there any certain language that's required? Are there any examples I can see?
Progress with debtors: Negotiations were progressing along with Brazil’s internal debtors over a suspension in interest payments for several years due to Brazil’s hairy financial situation after the pandemic and recession. Although initially reluctant, a Chinese refinancing loan and the threat of reducing the value of debt, along with the promises of financial liberalization and reform have progressed negotiations. The time had come for the Brazilian government to undertake actual reform before the debtors would budge, and this was the most difficult part. The actual reform voting has gone surprisingly well, but the court case against the president has started to delve into how some of these votes were obtained.
Reforms passed to please debtors are the increased centralization and simplification of tax collection and the cutting of red, making business and entrepreneurship much easier all across Brazil and allowing for an increased ease of scaling up, while also making corruption a tad more difficult for some local governments. Although faced by resistance from local governments, the move was a necessary one and debtors have signalled their pleasure at the act. Another necessary reform has been the increased legal independence of the central bank, also helping to placate debtors who have long wanted to see greater financial stability in the nation. The final deal worked out is that in exchange for these reforms, internal Brazilian debt would interest payments suspended for 5 years, in which time Brazil would continue to reform its tax code and not run any deficits. Although a victory for Bolsonaro, it may have been pyrrhic as judges he had empowered now to close in on his questionable financials, his son already in court under damning evidence. A victory for the nation is not always a victory for the leader, proven by Brazil’s projected savings of hundreds of billions of dollars and increased financial health, but a president sinking in the polls as his rival, Governor Silva, continues to rise. Promises of pension and government pay reductions are also planned, and spending on infrastructure is in the works but these plans must wait until at least the next fiscal year.
Given the COVID restrictions, hearings are now being held over the phone. I'm the creditor for a payment hearing. In my experience the debtor/defendant is very skilled at being tricky. In the last hearing he fooled the arbitrator into thinking I was speaking when in fact it was him. At the time it seemed like a moot point so I didn't point it out, but knowing how "unreversable" some decisions are in law, I will do this next time.
I felt like the last arbitrator wasn't diligent enough to be on guard. Is there any specific etiquette or protocol I should use either before an incident happens or after? The arbitrator was very sensitive to people not interrupting her but still the process must be fair.
Another thing the defendant does is not being clear which number he's referring to, says "I'll meet you half way" then does a ton of rounding etc.
I also have reason to believe he may go by a slight different name (or had changed his name, or use his middle name as his first etc.) What question should I ask in the payment hearing to get all possible information on what his full name is?
Lastly, what happens if he just doesn't attend the payment hearing? I know it says the creditor can ask for his arrest. Does the Justice usually grant the request? What exactly happens when he is arrested, would he be jailed until the time of the next hearing?

Nowadays most debts aren't realistically collectable- creditors who borrowed money in trust with debtors, who are not willing to pay or has other problems often end up themselves with problems with their own obligations, because of that. If you willingly committed yourself to pay someone money, it should be your duty to fullfill your obligation or live your whole life with your wage(to a certain point, where you have just enough money for food and shelter and literally nothing else- no Netflix, no games, vacations etc.) being offsetted on your creditor's behalf- nobody made you, to borrow money you can't afford to pay back, so take responsibility for your own actions. I disagree with such an unfair potrayal in mainstream of debtors being the poor victim, while creditors are evil villains, just for wanting the money, they're legally entitled to.
Some of these are definitely meant to mirror the situation of gang members but others are far more vague and are simply based on appearance and general personality:-
Wrobel = Leopold Strauss
These 2 have a similar kind of profession as they are both in charge of the money of small enterprises. Strauss in charge of the gangs money and Wrobel in charge of Painted Sky. They both have a similar weedy appearance and are both foreigners from almost neighbouring regions of Europe. Their fates also kind of end the same with Strauss being outcast and Wrobel falling on hard times when Arthur pays him a visit.
Chick Matthews = Sean Maguire
This one is pretty vague and may not even be relevant but his personality and childishness seems to be somewhat similar to Sean's. His fate also kind of echoes Sean's in this chapter with the way Arthur has to tie him up to collect money from him in the same way Sean is tied up by the bounty hunters for the money they will collect for him.
Lilly Millet & Cooper = Molly O'Shea and Dutch Van Der Linde
When returning only Lilly's debt Arthur states that she has made some "bad decisions in her life" in obvious reference to her relationship with Cooper. Lilly's name sounds very similar to Molly and her dress sense and appearance is also very similar. Likewise Cooper also has a somewhat similar style to a younger less refined Dutch. The fact that they are arguing when Arthur arrives echoes what we see between Dutch and Molly in camp multiple times. They are essentially a reference to Molly's bad choice of Dutch as the man she wants to spend her life with and the negatives that arise from that.
Thomas Downes = (Good) Arthur Morgan
I think Thomas Downes is meant to represent the type of man that Arthur could've been if he had made good choices and chosen to be a good man. Arthur earns money through stealing and violence whereas Downes earns money through kindness and hard work. Downes got sick by using kindness to help the sick and poor whereas Arthur got sick by using violence. The Downes family situation also shows what Arthur could've had if he had chosen Mary over the gang or even earlier stayed with his original family of Eliza and Isaac.
Gwyn Hughes = Kieran Duffy
This is another one which just seems to be based purely on demeanour and appearance. His extreme nervousness and skittishness is very similar to Kieran's and he seems to do whatever he can just to stay alive even though he regrets it. In th... keep reading on reddit ➡
5e is about heroes. Good heroes must struggle. 5e isnt my favorite system but its fun to run and i’ve got a great campaign going in it. One thing ive thought about while reading and running other systems that emphasize PCs starting out as nobodies is that new GMs often start with 5e and often struggle with starting adventures. My idea, new GM or not, talk to your players about starting with nothing but the clothes on their backs and maybe a dagger, club, or woodchopping axe. It might be a hard sell, but its way more fun to have a story behind that sword and that chainmail that isn’t backstory. They have their skills, but the wizard may not even have a spell book yet. Acquiring these things would make levels 1 and 2 more meaningful and less “ok we go do this job so we can get to level 3”.
This also gives good potential reasons for them to be traveling together rather than an entire session of setup to get them to actually be a party, just throw em in there.

You awake to painful jostling and dust in your eyes and a dirty rag in your mouth. You are slung over the back of a horse and your hands are bound. You are in a wagon chain, in the middle of the desert, surrounded by endless sand and stout shrubs, tall saguaros and prickly pears. You look up and see ahead your old friends Redo and Jess in cramped cages on the back of a wagon. What’s the last thing you remember?

Ok, so... a multi-national company ("A") signed a contract in the UK, with a UK company ("B"), for an office lease in the UK.
"A" then entered Chapter 11 Bankruptcy in the US proceedings and managed to get an "Order Approving the Rejection of Certain Executor Contracts and Unexpired Leases and the Abandonment of Certain Expendable Property", which includes the contract between "A" and "B".
"A" is now using this US order to effectively reject the UK lease without any penalties and disregarding UK law. If you're interested in the order they are using to support them cancelling the tenany agreement without any further discussions, you can see it here: https://dm.epiq11.com/case/aem/dockets . It's the newest docket, #691.
What is "B", a UK company supposed to do now? Fight this out in the USA? Are our judges really servants of those in the USA?
Now it grows faster than we can work it off, and the only ones without debt are the guards.
|<Hey pals, I wrote a fairy tale and I really wanted to share it. Feel free to let me know what you think, suggestions, criticisms, etc. While I tried to include as many traditional fairy tale elements as possible (hero's journey, repetition, magical helpers, etc.), I also wanted to subvert many of the character tropes common in traditional tales.

The Debtor and the Duke’s Daughter
Once upon a time- maybe long ago, maybe yet to come- there lived a curious, clever & scruffy girl named Remmy. She lived in a kingdom where many were born into debt, a generational dishonor which stained the reputation of a family and chained its descendants to a lifetime of impoverished misery. Debtors in the kingdom were entitled to nothing, denied access to even the most basic comforts of modern society if they could not afford them outright. Thus, Remmy’s mother died giving birth to her, suffering from a somewhat common birthing complication which, routinely fixed with minor surgery & antibiotics, was nevertheless a fatal scourge on the expectant mothers of the debtor class. Her father was left with a dilemma; he was a fundamentally religious man of the most severe type, a zealot, and did not believe women should be educated; and yet his only hope to restore honor to his family would be this girl-child, for at the time he also would not allow himself to take another wife and violate the sanctity of his devotion. His strange compromise was to raise Remmy as his son, giving her the education and mentorship she would need to take on the dangerous world outside their shabby home, so long as she did not display herself as a female and break his precariously and desperately crafted illusion.
His decision paid off for as soon as she could walk & talk well enough to navigate on her own, she made him money. Remmy did not understand why money was the frenetic pulse which drove everyone around her, but it was plain to see that amassing it was equivalent to amassing power & influence. Before her baby teeth had all fallen out, she made her father enough money to purchase a certificate of marriage annulment from their district’s Priestman-a lucrative venture of the local religious bureaucracy which was usually inaccessible to the debtor class... keep reading on reddit ➡
