What happens if my claim is settled?

If you settle the claim with the Defendant and want to withdraw the application, you should inform Client Services (Petty Debts) immediately either in writing or in person.

The settlement should include the summons fee. If the Defendant is unwilling to pay this fee and you want it back, you can continue with your Petty Debts Claim to recover this.

What happens next if the claim is not settled before the Court date?

If the Petty Debts Claim is not settled by the Defendant before midday on the day of the Petty Debts Court (Thursday) then the Plaintiff should pay the respective court fee at the Royal Court public counter before 2:15PM to the Court hearing to have the matter presented before the Court.
