You need to go to court if it isn't settled or you risk your claim being struck out.

If you are suing a person in the small claims court then you must therefore be prepared to go. As Caro rightly states, if you do not turn up then you risk having your case struck out.


From what I am advised, your being present in a small claims court is no different than attending a job interview!


Preparing yourself for court is far easier than you think, but only if you take the time to go through this site and then you will see how much info is covered.
