10 TIPS FOR HANDLING SPECIAL CIVIL CASES

Here are 10 tips for handling Special Civil Cases
Handling your Special Civil case wrong from the beginning may only cost you more money and time in the end!! Here are 10 suggestions that might be of use to you when handling your Special Civil case! However, no website is a substitute for competent advice from a New Jersey Special Civil lawyer!

ONE – PREPARE SPECIAL CIVIL COMPLAINTS AND SPECIAL CIVIL ANSWERS VERY CAREFULLY!!!
If you are a Special Civil plaintiff, prepare your Special Civil complaint carefully. Make sure your Special Civil complaint includes all: (a) claims – “causes of action” – that you are able to raise against the Special Civil Special Civil defendants and that you have a legal and factual basis to bring against the Special Civil Special Civil defendants; and (b) requests for relief – types of damages or “help” from the Special Civil court - to which you might be entitled against the Special Civil Special Civil defendants. Failing to include all proper Special Civil claims and Special Civil requests for relief in your Special Civil complaint may doom your Special Civil case to failure! If you are a Special Civil defendant, prepare your Special Civil answer carefully. Make sure that your Special Civil answer accurately answers all allegations of the Special Civil complaint paragraph for paragraph and that your Special Civil answer includes all defenses you are able to raise against the Special Civil complaint. Failing to include all proper Special Civil defenses in your Special Civil answer or answering Special Civil complaints improperly may doom your Special Civil case to failure and may expose you to a Special Civil money judgment!

TWO – DON’T EXPECT SPECIAL CIVIL COURT PERSONNEL TO TELL YOU WHAT TO DO!!!
Special Civil court personnel are generally not allowed to give Special Civil plaintiffs and Special Civil defendants legal advice. Special Civil court personnel are generally not allowed to tell you how to handle your case. Many Special Civil court personnel are not lawyers or certified paralegals. Be careful to avoid relying on the advice of Special Civil court personnel. Don’t expect a Special Civil judge to be convinced if you argue that you relied on of Special Civil court personnel when making certain decisions in your Special Civil case!

THREE – PREPARE FOR YOUR SPECIAL CIVIL TRIAL IMMEDIATELY!
Special Civil trials usually occur fairly rapidly after a Special Civil complaint is answered. Don’t wait until the day or week before Special Civil trial to prepare for your Special Civil trial! Far in advance of your Special Civil trial, documents have to be requested collected and Special Civil witnesses subpoenaed. It is not uncommon for a person to show up at a Special Civil trial asking for an adjournment because they are not ready to try their Special Civil case, with the Special Civil judge refusing to grant the request! Special Civil Special Civil plaintiffs and Special Civil Special Civil defendants often appear at a Special Civil trial unprepared only to learn the hard way that, very often, the key to winning a Special Civil trial is careful preparation.

FOUR – DON’T THINK THAT YOU ARE CERTAIN TO WIN YOUR SPECAL CIVIL CASE SIMPLY BY FILING PAPERS AND SHOWING UP AT YOUR SPECIAL CIVIL TRIAL!!
Winning a Special Civil case is not simply a matter of preparing and filing a Special Civil complaint or answer and showing up at Special Civil court. Many people think that their Special Civil proofs are certain to result in their winning their Special Civil case. But most likely, you only know your side of the story of your Special Civil Part case and you don’t know your Special Civil opponent’s side of that story. To be prepared to try your Special Civil case, you need to know your Special Civil opponent’s side of your Special Civil case. Otherwise, you may learn for the first time too late at the Special Civil trial that you are not certain to win your Special Civil case.

FIVE – SERVE YOUR OPPONENT WITH WRITTEN REQUESTS FOR INFORMATION BEFORE YOUR SPECIAL CIVIL TRIAL!!
Timely serve your opponents with detailed Special Civil discovery requests. If you are a Special Civil plaintiff, be sure to ask for documents and information to prove your Special Civil complaint; if you are a Special Civil defendant, be sure to ask for documents and information to prove your denials of the Special Civil complaint and defenses to the Special Civil complaint. You ask for information in a formal way – a written Special Civil request sent to your Special Civil opponent.

SIX – GET COMPLETE RESPONSES TO WRITTEN REQUESTS FOR INFORMATION BEFORE YOUR SPECIAL CIVIL TRIAL!!
It is your duty to follow the Special Civil court rules and use them to get complete responses to your Special Civil interrogatories and Special Civil requests for documents (also called a Special Civil notice to produce documents). Unless you take action to make sure you get complete responses to your Special Civil interrogatories and Special Civil requests for documents (also called a Special Civil notice to produce documents), you may go to your Special Civil trial unprepared and lose your Special Civil case! The Special Civil court rules include penalties for Special Civil Special Civil plaintiffs and Special Civil Special Civil defendants failing to answer properly prepared and served Special Civil interrogatories and Special Civil requests for documents (also called a Special Civil notice to produce documents). Take advantage of the Special Civil court rules to get complete responses to your Special Civil interrogatories and Special Civil requests for documents (also called a Special Civil notice to produce documents). If a Special Civil plaintiff or Special Civil defendant only gives you objections or incomplete answers to your Special Civil interrogatories and Special Civil requests for documents (also called a Special Civil notice to produce documents), you can prepare and file papers to seek Special Civil penalties against the offending parties! Many times, Special Civil Parties win their Special Civil cases by refusing to be satisfied with unresponsive or incomplete responses to Special Civil interrogatories and Special Civil requests for documents (also called a Special Civil notice to produce documents)!

SEVEN – DON’T EXPECT THE SPECIAL CIVIL COURT TO BE FAMILIAR WITH THE DETAILS OF YOUR CASE
Special Civil Part is one of the busiest of all of the sections of the Superior Court of New Jersey. Don’t ever expect Special Civil court personnel to be familiar with the details of your Special Civil case. Usually, most Special Civil court personnel never read your complaints, answers and motions. When dealing with Special Civil court personnel, be prepared to explain those details of your Special Civil case that are necessary for them to understand your Special Civil case.

EIGHT – IF YOU EXPECT TO CALL SPECIAL CIVIL WITNESSES AT YOUR SPECIAL CIVIL TRIAL, MAKE SURE TO ISSUE SPECIAL CIVIL SUBPOENAS FOR THEIR APPEARANCE
To make certain that a Special Civil witness will appear to give testimony in your Special Civil trial, prepare proper Special Civil subpoenas and have them properly served on the Special Civil witness well in advance of your Special Civil trial. Otherwise the Special Civil witness may not show up at your Special Civil trial and you may be without crucial evidence to prove your Special Civil case!

NINE – IF YOU WANT TO USE DOCUEMNTS AT YOUR SPECIAL CIVIL TRIAL, BE PREPARED TO HAVE THE RIGHT PERSON PRESENT TO TESTIFY ABOUT THOSE DOCUMENTS
You cannot always use documents at your Special Civil trial. Even affidavits are often unusable at a Special Civil trial. Often, Special Civil Parties are prevented from using documents at their Special Civil trials because they don’t have the right person to testify about the document’s authenticity/accuracy. You may need to call and serve a Special Civil subpoena Special Civil Special Civil witnesses to testify about the documents that you want to use at your Special Civil trial!

TEN – WRITE OUT THE QUESTIONS YOU SHALL ASK AT YOUR SPECIAL CIVIL TRIAL BEFORE IT STARTS
Special Civil judges usually want you to be prepared to start your Special Civil trial as soon as your Special Civil case is called to be tried. Special Civil judges don’t want to wait for you to decide what questions you will ask your Special Civil witnesses during the Special Civil trial. How you ask your questions during your Special Civil trial could affect whether you win your Special Civil case. Take the time to prepare your Special Civil direct examination and Special Civil cross examination in advance of your Special Civil trial.

CAN I RELY ON NEW JERSEY SMALL CLAIMS COURT PERSONNEL OR NEW JERSEY SPECIAL CIVIL COURT PERSONNEL FOR LEGAL ADVICE?
New Jersey Special Civil employees cannot give you “free” legal advice and a Special Civil judge may refuse to let you claim that you were right in taking an action (or in deciding not to take action) because you relied on advice from such employees. Most New Jersey Special Civil employees are not trained attorneys and therefore, they may not know what advice to give you. Working at the Special Civil Court as a non-judge is not the same as practicing law.

CAN I RELY ON NEW JERSEY SPECIAL CIVIL PART FORMS PROVIDED BY THE NEW JERSEY SPECIAL CIVIL PART COURT?
The New Jersey Special Civil Part usually provides certain types of Special Civil legal forms to the public and those forms are often very helpful. However, beware relying on New Jersey Special Civil Part forms provided by the New Jersey Special Civil Part court – the Special Civil forms are often deceptively simple, while Special Civil Part cases often are much more complex than they first appear to be. There is simply no substitute for a competent Special Civil attorney licensed to practice law in New Jersey who has experience handling New Jersey Special Civil Part cases. Special Civil forms don’t talk and Special Civil forms and their directions rarely, if ever, cover every possible situation, set of facts or legal issue that may arise in a New Jersey Special Civil Part case. Each New Jersey Special Civil Part case has its own particular legal issues and therefore, its own challenges. If you can afford a competent New Jersey Special Civil trial attorney, it is best to have the Special Civil attorney prepare your New Jersey Special Civil Part paperwork for you.

CAN I HANDLE A NEW JERSEY SPECIAL CIVIL CASE MYSELF?
Many people can and do successfully handle New Jersey Special Civil cases, from filing the first paperwork to the collection of a New Jersey Special Civil judgment. However, many other people also make mistakes that lead to the dismissal of their New Jersey Special Civil cases or that result in the entry of a New Jersey Special Civil money judgment against them. The greater the money at stake, the greater the reason to consider using the services of a competent attorney licensed to practice law in New Jersey to handle part or all of the New Jersey Special Civil case. The following are reasons to use an attorney to handle part or all of your New Jersey Special Civil case:
• New Jersey Special Civil fees often change
• New Jersey Special Civil rules often change
• New Jersey Special Civil employees cannot give you “free” legal advice and a Special Civil judge may refuse to let you claim that you were right in taking an action (or in deciding not to take action) because you relied on advice from such employees
• New Jersey Special Civil court forms available on websites may not cover every situation you may face in court
• each New Jersey Special Civil case has its own particular legal issues and therefore, its own challenges
• it is very common for people to file inadequate or incorrect New Jersey Special Civil complaints that result in the New Jersey Special Civil complaints or answers to New Jersey Special Civil complaints being rejected by the New Jersey Special Civil or being dismissed by the New Jersey Special Civil after filing and before or after trial because of procedural deficiencies.
• it is not uncommon for judges to get very frustrated by an unrepresented party’s lack of preparation or ignorance of the facts or law of the New Jersey Special Civil case.
• a court has the power to punish unprepared parties, such as by throwing their New Jersey Special Civil case out of court or limiting what they can present at the New Jersey Special Civil trial.
• New Jersey has many published cases, laws, regulations, court rules and rules of evidence that can be very tricky to understand and that can be used to prevent you from doing much of what you want to do at the New Jersey Special Civil trial.
• it is very common for courts to refuse to allow a party to use or refer to documents or items at the New Jersey Special Civil trial that the person themselves never prepared. Often parties stumble into New Jersey Special Civil with a video, photograph, bill or affidavit or other form of written statement, thinking they are going to use it as proof that they lost money or that they are not responsible for someone else’s damages, only to have a Special Civil judge tell the parties that it is not going to even consider such items or documents.
• without the proper preparation, items and documents may never be considered by the New Jersey Special Civil. Also, if there are any legal issues to be dealt with at the New Jersey Special Civil trial, you must be prepared to argue them, which may require you to refer to court rules, evidence rules, laws, regulations or published cases.
• you cannot show up at the New Jersey Special Civil expecting the judge hearing your New Jersey Special Civil case to explain court rules, evidence rules, court procedure or the details of the law that applies to your New Jersey Special Civil case. The judge hearing your New Jersey Special Civil case is not permitted to give you legal advice.

It is important to remember that even if you have an attorney, you could lose your New Jersey Special Civil case. Hiring an attorney to handle part or all of your New Jersey Special Civil case does not guarantee your success. However, it may provide what is needed to win your New Jersey Special Civil case or to avoid certain mistakes.
