consequences of non attendance at court

I have been summoned by a county council to attend a hearing at a magistrates court. It is a case of statute law pertaining to trading standards.This is a civil matter- Fact. Here is my question. If for example i am fined by the magistrates court and I do not pay then does the fine or the sentence become an arrestable criminal matter because it was ruled by the court? or does it remain civil. I am toying with the idea of completely ignoring them and wondering what might happen if I do. Thanks in advance.

The Council Tax /Magistrates Court hearing is only to establish WHO IS LIABLE for the council tax and is indeed (IMHO) a f**cking fraud and as such is a summery offence.
Take a look around the site. I can assure you, what ever problem you have has already been experienced by other members. :yes:

Hi monkeyman54321

Your question is too big to answer in a way that you would find immediately helpful.

Bear in mind that it appears we don't have 'civil' law, we apparently operate under ROMAN CIVIL law, which is kind of oxymoronic as ROMAN LAW was always military law, and we are allegedly 'infantry'...

...but if you are determined to find out what happens if you ignore summons then doing nothing is an excellent plan.

Unfortunately there is no substitute to educating oneself if you wish to successfully navigate the quagmire of modern 'law' and anyone offering a quick-fix may be well-intentioned but they are also kidding both themselves and yourself.

'Know thyself' is the best place to start, monkeyman.

Edit: just seen Mike's answer after posting this - he is not kidding. Heed his words.

Cheers!

Thank you for replies. I have been educating myself for many years. It is such minefield and I get so bored of tedious dealings with lunatics that I have been ignoring them completely with quite a degree of success. I may decide not to go to court even or even acknowledge anything. The dilemma i have is that at present the summons is a civil matter. If I dont go, and ignore any ruling by the court, does the 'punishment' remain civil or can the police then be involved because the court has made a ruling. I would be grateful of any clarification or experience. Thank you again. mm54321 xxxx

Hi monkeyman54321,

As far as i am aware, they will fine you in your absence and let the DCA's at you. But i don't know for sure.

Cheers!

i have found out that the police no longer pursue unpaid fines. I did however ind it very interesting that the magistrates court has the power to send private bailiffs to arrest you and drag your arse into court. lol x

Good morning
Monkeyman.
As the saying goes..we all have more to learn.
So, thanks Mike/Lamani.

In my own dealings with the criminal [so called] Authorities, I have found that
nothing confounds them more than a...conditional acceptance

Also as I`m F`ing useless as far as grammar/syntax are concerned I find this
particular site of great value, in fact, there very few online I would recommend.

However in this particular instance for the sake of expedience I highly recommend
the following.
