COURT OF LAW SERVICES
Email: [email protected]
For large claims (of $3000 and more) a panel of 3 Dayanim may be requested by the litigants (or they may choose to adjudicate with one Dayan, and submit to arbitration by filling out the pertinent documents). The case will be heard by appointment only, in the Bais Din chamber.
A plaintiff can initiate a claim against the defendant by submitting a form. The secretary of the Beis Din will contact you to discuss the details of the claim, procedure and scheduling.
If a plaintiff refuses to appear (or provide proof that the case is being heard in a different Beis Din) the Beis Din will issue a summons [this does not indicate any partiality with the plaintiff, it is merely a legal procedure]. Beis Din will issue up to three summonses. Should they go unanswered, they will generally publicize a siruv (contempt of court document).
BAIS DIN / COURT FEES
$35 Initiating a claim & 1st Summons to Defendant
$25 Per subsequent summons.
$70 Per hour of proceedings, per side.
The Beis Din of KCM adjudicates in a joint panel with local Rabbonim and Dayanim as well with Badat"z Even Haezer of Lakewood, Bais Havaad L’Inyonei Mishpot, and Beis Din Darkei Shalom.
