I owe someone money and now he wants to serve me with a court summon please advice me

Good day everyone!

A month ago I signed a business contract between myself and a client and now I owe the person R12 500.00 which I have failed to pay in due time. Now he told me he has filed for a court summon with the small claims court in JHB.
I dont have any lawyer and dont have any experience with this procedure because it will be my first time.

How long does it take for the letter of summon to reach my doorstep?
What is the worst I can expect from this whole court procedure?

If you know any cheap lawyers or attorneys in JHB please kindly refer me.


Thank you!

This was dealt with in your previous thread relating to exactly the same issue.

You were given all the relevant advice in that thread.

If you owe the person why not just pay him? Rather ask the person if you can pay the amount in 3 month or six month installments.

So you gonna waste more money on a lawyer?
