Oral Examination

What is an Order to Obtain Information (Oral Examination)?

An Order to Obtain Information (formerly called an “Oral Examination”) is used by creditors to help them determine what to do before enforcing a CCJ. During the examination you will be asked what assets you own so that they can work out the most effective way to recover the outstanding debt.

The Creditors can apply for an order for you to appear in court for an oral examination; if you do not turn up, in theory a warrant for your arrest and imprisonment may follow.


Q: What kind of questions are asked?

A: You’re likely to be asked your regular monthly income and outgoings, your current job and place of work, along with questions about any properties you own.
