I have a trial date (mediation) for small claims court

Customer Question

I have a trial date (mediation) for small claims court coming up in a few days. The claimant is asking for $550. It's not worth my time to go. What happens if I don't show, and then don't show to the court date?

Thanks for your question.

If you miss either of these dates the Plaintiff will get an order for what they are asking plus interest and some legal costs.

They can then seek to enforce it against your assets or wages.

Does that answer your question?
