About this document

The procedure is very easy to follow. All you need are a couple of forms and a stamp; no solicitors, no court fees.

Easy document to adapt and it was available to me immediately. I completed it and sent it to our debtor advising that if the debt wasn't paid within x time that the demand would be served. I received payment the next day. It was worth spending $19 to recover $32,000 over night. Great outcome for us. Thank you. Yes, I would recommend you and I would use you again.

The information was really informative and gave us options that were relevant to the situation.

The form contained enough information for me to draft and send a Statutory demand. It also explained the process clearly so there was no confusion.
By Douglas Majors 08 June 2014
The document was very easy to understand, gave me the options of placing my own words to suit my particular situation but still left the same impact as if my Lawyer had written it.I was hesitant at first, thinking that it would only suit certain situations in an "American Court" but my fears were allayed as soon as I read the documents. So easy to change to suit any country.
The cost savings are obvious and the quality is just as, if not better, than that of paying hundreds of dollars to a Lawyer to write the same thing.I am highly impressed and will gladly recommend this service in future.

We were looking for a Statutory Demand, bought the document from Net lawman and was pleasantly surprised. Not only did we get the document we got a covering letter, a follow up letter if paid, a letter for if not paid and advice on how to use it. Well worth the money - certainly saved me a lot of time making this very cost effective.

Pleased to find such a site ; certainly will look again.
By Keith Jackson 16 July 2015
The document was of good quality and well supported with applicable options and instructions.
I actuallay completed the doc and forwarded to our solicitor because I was unsure of other requirements associated with the demand. Its a lot of money involved so being wise takes priority.

We needed a better way of getting bad debtors to pay and this was a good path to follow. Template was clear and concise and easy to follow. We chose to use Net Lawman because others who had used it gave good reviews.
By Jean Koay 13 January 2014
Good value for money. Included was template cover letter, statutory demand, statement of claim and some instructions. It would have been helpful if they also included info on how to lodge the statement of claim with the courts if the customer does not pay on receiving the statuary demand.

We will consider what more we can do. Our problem however, is that if debtor fails to pay, you become involved in a court process. We are prevented by law from advising or acting for you in that. Simple, but annoying for all of us.
By Darren Arnold 03 May 2013
Well worth the price, demand served on client who immediately paid the outstanding debt.
By Patrick Kennedy 02 July 2013
Better than i thought it might be, i did benefit as i sent my debtor the 289 notice and hey presto the debtor paid!-yes I would recommend it.
"I have found Net Lawman perfect for my needs and saved me thousand of dollars in legal fees getting a lawyer to produce these douc's from scratch. I have used three of the Net Lawman doc's to basically write up the NDA, contract, Non Solicitation agreements to a level of being 95% complete and then used my lawyer to sign off. My lawyer even commented how complete these doc's are.
Thanks guys, great service/product.
Cheers Dean"Dean Harper
