I am a respondent. What do I do after receiving a claim?
First, log on to CJTS to find out more about the claim that has been made against you.
|Step 1||Go to http://www.statecourts.gov.sg/CJTS/|
|Step 2||Login using your SingPass (for individuals) or CorpPass (for business entities). If you are not eligible for SingPass or CorpPass, you may apply for a CJTS Pass by clicking "Register for CJTS Pass".|
|Step 3||Update "My Profile" with your personal particulars.|
|Step 4||Key in your one time reference number as found in the Notice of Consultation served on you. |
|Step 5||Explore. Once logged in, you will be able to see the case details online, view submitted documents, participate in e-negotiation, monitor the progress of the case and check for Consultation dates. |
Next, consider if you wish to settle the claim. If you wish to settle the claim with the claimant, you may initiate e-Negotiation with a view to resolving the dispute. If the claim is not settled by the date of Consultation, you must attend the Consultation on the date stated in the notice, failing which the Tribunals may make an adverse order against you.
Filing a Counterclaim
If you also have a claim against the claimant, you may file a counterclaim against the claimant.
For counterclaims: Login to CJTS, and click "Online Applications". Choose the e-service "Counterclaim Form" and follow the instructions. Filing a counterclaim is very similar to filing a claim. Like a claim, a counterclaim must be served on the person the counterclaim is being made against.
