HOW TO FILE A LEGAL REMEDY AGAINST A SMALL CLAIM VERDICT ?
Perhaps the word "Small Claim Court" is rarely heard in Indonesian society, for more details, a small claim court is the procedure for examination in court against a civil lawsuit with a maximum material claim value of Rp500,000,000.00 (five hundred million Rupiah) which is resolved with simple procedures and proof. Then what about the court's decision on small claim court. A small claim court is filed against a case of default and/or action against the law (tort) with a simple lawsuit settlement of no later than 25 (twenty five) working days since the first trial day.
Legal remedies against small claim court are different from lawsuits in general. In a small claim court, legal remedies against a small claim court can be made by filing an a objection. Objections are submitted to the head of the court by signing a deed of objection statement to the clerk of the court along with the reasons for filing the objection. Application for objection must be submitted no later than 7 (seven) days since the decision is pronounced or after the notification of the decision. An objection application is submitted to the head of the court by filling in the form for objection request provided at the secretariat.
Objection is the last legal remedy and therefore the judge's decision at the objection level is final. This means that no legal remedies can be filed, including appeals, cassations and reconsiderations.
