Jugges and Courts
In the UK - Not a good idea - Have you ever read Alice in Wonderland - going down the rabbit hole without support, can open up a whole new world of pain for you.
If you don't have a lawyer (a solicitor or barrister), you can take your own case or defend yourself in court or at a tribunal.
It's important to try to get proper legal help if you can. If you're on a low income, find out if you can get free or affordable legal advice.
Before taking legal action
Be realistic about whether you can get what you want if you take a case to court. If your dispute is about a misunderstanding or communication breakdown, court is usually not the best place to sort it out. It's usually better to try other options first.
Taking a case to court can be stressful. It can take a lot of time and money - for example, if you lose and you have to pay the other side's costs.
