Do I need to have a record of any payments, returned cheques, etc. and/or a clear recollection of what happened and when?

Yes, you will be required to form a short, clear summary of the events that took place and the reasons you think you are entitled to judgment against the defendant.  It is very important to retain and attach any documents that you have to support your claim.  The more evidence you have the greater chance of success.

Examples of evidence that would help for a successful case include:

  • Invoices
  • Returned cheques
  • Photographs pertaining to your matter
  • Record of payments
  • Email exchange

Remember, the other party is able to respond to your claim and may give evidence that will affect the judge’s view of your entitlement.
