Frequently Asked Questions

Is it always necessary to resolve a dispute by going to court?

No. There are many alternative dispute resolution methods such as Mediation between parties, Arbitration, Ombudsmen and Negotiating with the other party or the other party’s attorney to aim at settling the matter beforehand.

How does the court process start?

The court process is commonly known as the litigation process and commences either by way of an application or an action. An action means the dispute can only be decided upon by the hearing of oral evidence given by witnesses at a trial. The action process is started by the issuing of a summons at the relevant court in which the matter will be entertained. In contrast, an application is decided on the papers placed before court. All the evidence a party wishes to put forward in support of a claim must be included in the application papers. An application commences by means of a notice of motion and a founding affidavit.

How much will it cost to resolve my dispute?

Resolving a dispute can either be extremely affordable or rather expensive depending on the nature of the dispute. However, after the first consultation with one of our professional staff, you will have an estimate of the costs involved in resolving your dispute.
