As far as Court, you're talking I think about a real lawsuit, I'm talking small claims, fill out a form simple stuff.

Usually $5

In any event the dispute is the easiest, cost is $0
Dear friend Bob, I must beg to differ with you on this one so that people have the correct info. I have experience dealing with the Florida Court system as a paralegal and I have a year of law school. If you check the Sumter County Court website, they clearly state the fees. Kitty's claim would be over $2,500 I am sure, so the fee would be $300.00 plus any costs she incurs. Even a claim under $100.00 is $55.00. The Florida Courts have raised the fees over the years to discourage litigation. Further, most credit companies only allow 60 days to dispute a charge, some 90 days, but most 60 days as required by law. I believe Kitty has passed this mark, but I welcome her to check with her credit card company. And one last warning from someone who knows. In the event 48 hour blinds chose to hire an attorney and they decide to record a lien agaist her home for payment of the blinds, if they prevailed instead of Kitty, they could actually get a court order to force her to pay their attorney's fees and costs...and Boy oh Boy, the attorney's love that because they can pad their fees tremendously and threaten to forclose on Kitty's home if she refuses to pay. It seems crazy, but it is exactly why contractors have a lot of leverage. I think she needs to calm down and think this out for a little before overreacting or disparaging the company to the point where he feels she may be intentionally harming him unjustly. I have seen it happen many, many me.
