Small Claim matters are all those which involve financial issues or recovery of property not exceeding $35,000.00 (not including interest or legal costs). Although Small Claims Court is a less expensive and less time consuming option than the Superior Court, it is important to understand the Rules governing procedure within the Small Claim Courts.
A few examples of mistakes made by litigants without proper representation include, forgetting that most lawsuits must be brought within two years or you may lose your ability to sue; not using the correct wording when suing a corporation, even missing out on wording such as ‘Inc.’ can lead to a judgement being overturned; not providing enough or any evidence; and not filing your responding Paperwork to a Plaintiff’s claim within the specified time frames.
