Case study – Meena and Fantastic Florists
Meena runs a small business from home, doing website
design and IT support for other small businesses. One of her regular clients,
Fantastic Florists, has failed to pay her invoice in the amount of $4,000 for
the website she built. Meena sent a couple of reminder letters but there has
been no response. She tried to contact Fiona from Fantastic Florists by
telephone but could not reach her. Meena
sent a letter of demand to Fantastic Florists. Fiona from Fantastic Florists
offered to pay for part of the outstanding invoice. Meena refused Fiona’s offer
and started legal action in the Small Claims Division of the Local Court to
recover the outstanding amount from Fantastic Florists. Fiona did not respond
to the statement of claim within 28 days of when it was served. Meena applied
to the court for default judgment. Fiona did not pay the judgment. Meena applies to the court for a garnishee
order on Fiona’s bank account by filing a notice of motion – garnishee order
and a garnishee order for debts.
