Debts that may be redirected under enforcement warrant

840 Debts that may be redirected under enforcement warrant

(1) A court may issue an enforcement warrant authorising redirection to an enforcement creditor of specified debts certainly payable, belonging to an enforcement debtor, from a third person.
(2) In deciding whether to issue an enforcement warrant authorising redirection, including regular redirection under division 2 , the court must have regard to the following—
(a) whether the enforcement debtor has adequate means of satisfying the order after deducting—
(i) the necessary living expenses of the enforcement debtor and the enforcement debtor’s dependants; and
(ii) any other known liabilities of the enforcement debtor;
(b) whether the amount of regular debt to be redirected would impose unreasonable hardship on the enforcement debtor;
(c) if the applicant is the enforcement debtor—whether, having regard to the availability of other enforcement means, the issue of the warrant would be consistent with the public interest in enforcing orders efficiently and expeditiously;
(d) whether, having regard to the nature of the debt (belonging to the enforcement debtor from the financial institution) and the type of redirection, a regular redirection or otherwise, is appropriate.
(3) A debt may be redirected only if the debt, or the part of the debt belonging to the enforcement debtor, is payable to the enforcement debtor from the third person on the date the enforcement warrant is served on the third person.
(4) Subrule (3) does not apply to a regular redirection under division 2 .
