Whether the Courts sides in your favour or not, there may still be more to do.
Self Advocacy 101 - After Judgment
Most decisions can be appealed. If you are unhappy with the decision you must act fast. Timelines for filing an appeal are usually short, anything from a few days to a month. Before appealing, keep in mind that appeals are not usually a rehearing. The Court of Appeal is generally interested in hearing how a judge may have made a an error of law.
Courts are not in the business of collection. An Order or a Judgment will give you the basis to make a demand from the other party but additional steps may be needed to collect the money you are owed.
