What to do if a claim is between $25,000 and $50,000

Arbitrate.

These claims tend to be too large for Small Claims Court, which has a $25,000 maximum.

These claims also tend to be too small to be cost-effective in the Superior Court’s so-called “simplied procedure” (Rule 76).

Rather than reduce the claim to $25,000 or get tangled up in the Court’s “simplified procedure”, check out our 3-page rules for claims up to $50,000 here.
