A judgment debtor who is unable to pay or who alleges that it is otherwise inexpedient to enforce an order may apply for a stay of execution. Such an application must be made in accordance with CPR, Part 23, and must be supported by a witness statement or affidavit substantiating the grounds relied on, and usually has to include a full statement of the debtor’s means.

Often the result of a successful application will be a stay of execution pending payment of the judgment by instalments.
