This guide gives you information that may be helpful if someone starts an action against you in Small Claims Court. Some of the topics it covers are:
- What if I just do nothing?
- I want to dispute the claim - what do I do?
- What if I agree I owe the money but I cannot afford to pay it all right now?
- What if I think the plaintiff should pay?
- What happens if I am noted in default?
- How do I settle if I want to?
There is also a checklist for replying to a claim.
