What is a terms of payment hearing in Small Claims Court?

If you do not agree with the defendant’s payment offer or payment schedule you can request a terms-of-payment hearing in front of a judge to discuss the matter further.

At the terms-of-payment hearing the defendant must show how much they can afford to pay and when. The judge may order the defendant to pay sooner than the defendant wanted. The judge could also order the defendant to pay a different amount than what was offered.
