SMALL CLAIMS 

A branch of the Superior Court of Justice which deals in civil matters where a business or a person would be suing the other party for property or a liquidated value that has a jurisdiction over monetary claims of up to $35,000, excluding interest, cost and legal fees.

Being sued or having to defend a lawsuit can be very stressful and time consuming. Having a legal representation will eliminate the stress of having to deal with the process that comes along the way.  

Gathering evidence, material facts, filing it in the right jurisdiction and gathering all pertinent documents can be a long process.  Making sure the right parties are on the claim and how and who it should be served on is important when starting the process.  In addition it is crucial to follow the Rules of Justice Acts in filling the appropriate paperwork.

The claim must be filed in the jurisdiction where the defendant resides or where the cause of action has occurred.   Not following the right steps maybe a waste of time and money. 

Obtaining an order in favor of the winning party is not the end of the road to the suit, there are processes that needs to be followed even after a default judgement or when a judgment is granted. A legal representative can see what enforcement options maybe available and than the demands can be made to enforce the order from the other party in default.   Once you enter into to a lawsuit or being sued it is very important to make sure the steps are not missed.
