      depends on the subject they are writing to you about!
      If its about debt, then they'll want a list of your incoming money then outgoings, showing how much left you have to pay after.

      If its regarding a particular subject they want your account of whats happened.
      Hope this helps!

      Why would a sol be calling you or writting to you, then charge you 15.00 per call?

      My sols will take calls from me.

      Like above are they debt? if they are, why would they charge you 15.00 to cause even more debt for yourself.

      Would not look good in court,

      Ah yes your honour I received the letter but could not call as I was in debt and they wanted 15.00 per call.

      I would not send any statements or anything to anyone that wants to charge 15.00 just for a phone call

      You might be interested to know that Googling 'solicitor full proof statement' ranks your post as No 1.

      A full proof statement means they want proof of what you are claiming. For instance if you are applying for a job and the application asks for 'full proof statement', it wants to see certified copies of your qualification diplomas not just a statement that you have them. If you are making a claim for accident injuries, a solicitor may want a 'full proof statement' which would be a doctor's report on the injuries sustained. In your case, it depends on what the circumstances are.

      As a lawyer myself I would never use that term to either a client or a witness. What it means, is that they want you to give a detailed statement, probably in the manner required by the Court's, which includes a heading and a statement at the end that the statement is true to the best of your knowledge and belief. If they are your solicitors, and they are charging you 15 for the call, I would suggest that you complain as they have a duty to explain clearly. If you are a witness, then there would be no charge to you, and if they try to tell you otherwise tell them that you are under no obligation to make a statement.
