Commencing and defending a legal action can be very costly in terms of both money and time spent. Generally, the party who loses will be made to pay the other side’s legal costs, so it is best only to begin legal actions that you feel you have a good chance of winning. Prospective litigants will also have to familiarise themselves with the rules and legislation governing the Court’s processes. As always, it is best to try to resolve your legal problem outside of the courts if possible. If you are going to represent yourself, make sure you are familiar with the rules and legislation of the Court.
