THE DIFFERENCES BETWEEN SMALL CLAIMS AND A CIVIL ACTION- Part I

The Choice of Tactics is Yours-Part One

 

On August, 2010 the Small Claims filing limits increased from $2,000.00 to $7,000.00 and the filing fee increased as well. As a result, the already congested Small Claims docket became overwhelmed, eliminating any perceived advantage to filing in Small Claims. 

 In Small Claims, budget cuts and hiring freezes have led to delays as long as one year from the date of filing suit to first appear before a magistrate.

 This means that before you even get a chance to show your face in court, your gleeful debtor has had an entire year to file, transfer, hide or squander any remaining assets that could have been used to satisfy your court awarded judgment or file bankruptcy.
