Going to a civil court
In this section we look at how you take things like housing, compensation, unpaid debts, broken contracts, or consumer problems to court. We understand that if you cannot get legal aid and cannot afford the help of a solicitor, going to court can be very stressful and difficult. We want to help you as much as we can. We have resources about ways to resolve things outside court, as well as how to work out who to sue and if it is worth it. We will add more resources as soon as we can.
We also highlight where you may be able to get further support and advice about your case, and have collected together the best information from other organisations about taking civil issues to court in England and Wales.
Corona virus update
If you have a court hearing coming up, read advice and guidance for all court and tribunal users during the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak from the government.
