How to Take Someone to Small Claims Court?
Small Claims Court allows you to process any claim that you may have that does not exceed $25,000. Any amount exceeding this will have to be foregone in case of a win. You usually don’t need a lawyer in a small claims court, but consulting a paralegal becomes necessary to pave an easy process. To take someone to small claims court there are a few conditions regarding the eligibility of the claim, which may be discussed further here:
- The claim must be submitted within two years of learning the issue
- Certain ways of collecting the claim must already be executed, such as sending a letter requesting the amount.
- And of course, the claim must not exceed $25,000.
The process to take someone to a small claims court is relatively simpler than the one for a supreme court, but however, it has its own requirements.
- A legal name for the person or company you are sewing
- A Service Ontario Account
- Case or reason for using in a detailed form
- A banking account
- Rate of interest on which the money is to be charged
- Other proofs or evidence presentable
Once having all these in hand, you can proceed with filing a case at the court and paying any applicable fee for suing. Being guided by a paralegal won’t just save you your time and effort on filing a faulty application but can also help you save hundreds of dollars on rejected applications. In case you win at small claims court, you can next claim a fee waiver if applicable. But in case you lose, you might have to pay a part or whole of the opposite party’s legal fee.
