    To be clear -

    The debt being claimed is R2500 and they have definitely got judgement already?
    The trouble with opportunity is it normally comes dressed up as work.

    Yes it's 2500...but including the interest of their lawyers is R3699.

    If you believe the claim was unfair, why didn't you contest the claim when summons commencing action was issued?

    I wasn't having a way forward,as the person who was helping me to see that file in court,told me that it's better to pay the debt unless if I need a lawyer is going to be more expensive than the debt..so I was very confused.So can you please brief me what will happen in court on that day, as it will my first time & I don't have a clue.

    Firstly, if a claim is lodged, one cannot ignore it, but you have to act to defend or pay up.
    In this case, the claim is for R500 per day, on what basis? Was there a contract or an agreement? if so, what were the terms of the agreement?
    Was there a hiring fee at a rate of R500 per day? what is the basis of their claim? Is the claim against you, or your partner who only left 5 days later?

    If you are unsure about the legal process, you have to get a lawyer to represent you.
    Excellence is not a skill; its an attitude...

    Hi Johnny03,

    I've come across an oversight on my part. You state that you aready have a judgment. I therefor deduce that the letter you received indicates that the court wants to conduct a financial enquiry on you. The letter must have stated taht you are to bring along a 3 month bank statement along with an affidavit clarifying your financial position
