Court fines – how are repayment levels arrived at?

We may be helping a cl negotiate a reduction in his repayment of a UC advance. The gent also has a fine from the court that is being deducted and the combination of the two is leaving him very short of money.

I haven’t been to a Mags Court for some years but I seem to remember that the accused were routinely given a statement of means to fill in to make sure the repayment rate for fines was reasonably affordable.

Does anyone know how this works if the hearing takes place without the accused ( either due to COVID or something else)?
