Whether the Courts sides in your favour or not, there may still be more to do.


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.
