Many people write off bad debts because they think they can’t afford to pursue the matter in court. The facts is that the Local Court of NSW has a Small Claims Division for claims under $10,000.
In general, witnesses are not required in the Small Claims Division and the court will determine the matter based solely on written statements. Often, a Statement of Claim and properly drafted witness statement will cause a debtor to cough up the money.
