You don`t need to go through this hearing to take steps to get money from the debtor, but it can help you get the information you need to get your money. To do this, you submit a review form and an affidavit for the application for enforcement to the court and serve them on the debtor. If the debtor is an individual (not a corporation), provide these documents along with a blank financial information form.

The debtor must fill out this form and give you and the judge a copy. This form will not be filed in the court record. At the hearing, the debtor must provide information about his or her work, income, property, bank accounts, debts, expenses and reasons for non-payment. After reviewing this information, the judge may order the debtor to make payments on specific dates. If you have a hearing loss and need an interpreter, you can apply to the Small Claims Court Registrar. Staff will first ask you if the written communication meets your needs. If written communication is not satisfactory, a visual voice interpreter may be used. You can either bring an interpreter or request that an interpreter be arranged for you. You may need to make an appointment to return if an interpreter is available. The court pays visual language interpreters the Department`s usual interpretation rate or the fee charged (whichever is lower).
