Further delays at the small claims court

In a previous blog post, we discussed a variety of examples in which people had to wait many months or even sometimes more than a year for the resolution of their claims, often caused by a backlogged court system, resulting in delays at the Small Claims Court. The statistics we referenced at the time were from 2019.

It’s now 2023 and according to the latest civil justice statistics published by the Ministry of Justice (MoJ), for the third quarter of 2022, volumes for all civil actions currently currently remain below pre-pandemic levels. However, despite this fact, the delays at the Small Claims Court between issue and trial for fast and multi-track claims now exceeds an astonishing 75 weeks, the longest this century, according to these latest government figures!


With waiting time caused by the delays at the Small Claims Court, why wait for potentially over a year to get your money back when a much faster option is available to you – use a professional Debt Recovery Agency like Cobra Financial Solutions to get your money back!

At Cobra Financial Solutions, we can collect a debt without a CCJ, so you won’t have to wait in line with hundreds of thousands of other people for a court date that, in some situations, may never arrive.


At Cobra, our team of skilled, committed debt recovery agents will meet with your debtor in person to recover your money. No waiting or delays. Furthermore, unlike the courts, we don’t require a CCJ to begin; all we need is evidence of the initial debt.

You can rely on us to collect your money faster than any court while simultaneously safeguarding your reputation, whether it’s through our specialised staff or our global network.
