    MCOL, help me make a claim. 9th Aug 18 at 7:41 AM
    So I am making a claim against someone who owes me money.
    They have now filed a defence but I cannot see this.
    How do I see it and what should I do next?

    The court will send it to you by post.

    You'll need to wait till you see it. If it's a full defence you can then choose to take it to a hearing

    You will pay a 'hearing fee'

    Thanks, I couldn't see where it says their defence will be posted, I thought all this could be done on line.
    First time I have done anything like this.

    Yeah, MCOL (money claim online) is a bit of a misnomer

    Hi there KnightStyle and Fatbelly,
    I'm in a similar situation, but my defendant hasn't responded. I'm now being asked whether I want to pay 77 to issue a warrant, do you know what a warrant is? and do you know whether a CCJ has already been applied to the defendant, given that they didn't respond?
    Many thanks for your help :-)

    yes, there's a ccj and you can now apply for a bailiff to attend.

    Whether that's a good use of further expense would need more info
