About Our Site
AboutSmallClaims was formed to offer a unique reference point on how to make or defend a small claim.
AboutSmallClaims is a one-stop resource for all aspects of the procedure relating to the small claims court. Whether you're a claimant, defendant or witness - or perhaps you're just considering your options - this is a step-by-step guide to small claims litigation.
Many people feel uncomfortable about representing themselves in court. AboutSmallClaims seeks to dispel the myths relating to the small claims court and provides helpful tips as to what to expect.
From preparing the case, serving documents and exhibits, filling out court forms, representing yourself in court to obtaining and enforcing judgments - this website contains a whole host of valuable information about giving yourself the best chance of success both in court and obtaining money owed to you after a successful outcome.
There are also informative articles about how to determine whether or not you might have a case, and how to weigh up the prospects of success with the cost of pursuing the claim. There are also articles to assist with the question of legal representation, as well as alternatives to litigation such as mediation or arbitration.
Our concern was that there was no single UK resource for interesting features and practical advice on this subject.
Our features and articles are written by experts - who have experience, or a particular interest in this area.
