Is it worth it to sue in Small Claims Court?

If you receive judgment in your favour it does not guarantee that you will get money from the defendant. You may find yourself having to enforce the judgment. In order for you to collect, the individual or business must have one of the following:

  1. Money (bank account)
  2. Assets that can be sold (property/land or vehicle, etc.), or
  3. A debt that is owed to them such as wages, rental income, accounts receivables etc.

It is best to acknowledge the financial status of the defendant before proceeding with a legal action, in doing so, it will give you a better understanding when it comes time to collecting any judgment received in your favour.
