About the Program
Small claims court can provide a simple, inexpensive way to resolve disputes with particular individuals or companies. Learn the nuts and bolts of small claims from precomplaint to post-judgment collection. This seminar will cover the pre-complaint process (Are there assets to pay a judgment? Are there other law suits?); filing the complaint (Conn. Gen. Stat. § 37-3a, military affidavit requirements, attorneys’ fees, etc.); the court hearing, if necessary; and collecting a judgment. Learn ways to pursue collection of your judgment including post-judgment interrogatories, examination of judgment debtor, and property execution and wage garnishment. The program will also examine how to defend against small claims actions, including how to challenge a credit card or other collection matters, as well as provide a summary of consumer rights in small claims.
