How Do Lawsuits In Small Claims Court Work?

Small Claims Court Does Not Mean Simple Court! Cases Can Be Brought For Up to $35,000 Involving Complex Legal Matters and While Laypersons Are Permitted to Represent Themselves, Professional Representation Likely Offers the Greatest Chance For Success.
Infordus Legal Services Works Hard Putting Your Best Case Forward

Lawsuit Document As is stated upon the website for the Ministry of the Attorney General, the Small Claims Court is the busiest civil litigation court in Ontario. Additionally, whereas the Small Claims Court is mandated to process matters in a 'summary fashion', receiving professional assistance from Infordus Legal Services in presenting your position as clearly and concisely as possible is of great importance.

Actions brought in what is called the Small Claims Court occur in the Superior Court of Justice.  Accordingly, what is known as the Small Claims Court is actually somewhat of a misnomer.  It is perhaps better to think of the Small Claims Court as a civil litigation court department assigned to handle a subset of cases involving claims for compensation up to $25,000 per Plaintiff (increased to $35,000 effective January 2020) plus legal costs and interest.  Another difference is that cases brought in the Small Claims Court are usually heard by Deputy Judges.  The Deputy Judges are lawyers with at least ten years experience who are appointed to act as part-time judges in the Small Claims Court.  Still another key difference is that Small Claims Court cases are conducted in accordance to Rules of the Small Claims Court which are a trimmed down set of procedural rules that help ensure small claims cases progress expeditiously from beginning to end.

Although the Small Claims Court handles the smaller claims brought to litigation, with claims of up to $35,000 per Plaintiff, these lawsuits are always treated as very important by Infordus Legal Services - after all, money matters are never truly 'small'; furthermore, these claims can, and often do, involve the same complex issues litigated in the unlimited court.
