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.
