Phone Number for the Simcoe Small Claims Court
There is a phone number that anyone can use to call the Simcoe Small Claims Court and speak to court staff. It is 519-426-6550. Note, the best times to call are generally between 8:30 a.m. and 9;30 a.m. and then again from 3:30 p.m.and 4:30 p.m. That is not to say that the wait will be short whenever you call, but generally the wait is shorter (or less long!) at these times.
You should never call the court and expect legal advice. Indeed, the small claims court’s greeting will tell you that court staff cannot provide legal advice. Court clerks will be helpful with respect to procedure only. This is important to realize because I have often been called by many people who have been told things by court clerks that, in all practicality, are unrealistic and/or unnecessary. For example, a court clerk may tell you that email service of a Plaintiff’s Claim is invalid. Technically this is correct, but practically, if the Defendant ends up filing a Defence after email service, the fact that it was invalid has no real affect. A full explanation is beyond the scope of this blog post, but will be the subject of a future article.
