When you use Recourse to file your claim, we make it easy by providing the following features:
A Dedicated Advisor
Filing a small claims lawsuit can be confusing and frustrating. There's a lot to keep track of and communication must be fast and clear. With Recourse, you'll be assigned a dedicated advisor* who will always be available to assist and notify you on your lawsuit's progress.
Small claims lawsuits also require a lot of paperwork and the requirements differ greatly in each county and state. These rules must be followed closely or the lawsuit won't be processed. Recourse takes care of all this necessary paperwork to keep your claim moving forward.
You must notify the correct defendant about the lawsuit in a timely manner. Recourse guarantees timely delivery of the summons through certified mail or special delivery by a local sheriff.
Recourse helps you collect the evidence you need and sends a copy of it to the defendant and the court. This gives the defendant a chance to settle before going to court.
In many cases, defendants choose to settle after they are summoned. Recourse will attempt to negotiate a settlement on your terms if you choose.
County courts can only give you a judgement. You are responsible for collecting on the judgement. Recourse can help you handle the collections process so you don’t have to deal with it.
Peace of Mind
With Recourse, you don’t have to worry about filing paperwork, missing a court date or collecting your judgement. You also don’t need expensive lawyers and with a dedicated advisor, you’re always up-to-date on your lawsuit. If you win, you can also recoup the cost of using Recourse!
*The dedicated advisor cannot provide any legal advice. They will be able to answer basic questions on topics such as claim limits and statute of limitations.
