Jurisdiction track deals with cases involving large amounts of

Jurisdiction of Civil CourtsCivil courts within the United Kingdom are progressive because of the fact that the cases involved can enter the system at many different levels depending on the gravity of the case and also the amount of money subsequently involved within a single case. Within the Civil courts structure there are also 4 courts; County Courts, High Court of Justice (Queen’s Bench, Chancery and Family), Court of Appeal and Supreme Court.The county court is under the jurisdiction of Civil Court. The county court is mostly responsible for dealing with less serious civil matters such as; contract, property, insolvency and probate. County court cases are usually assigned to one of three ‘tracks’, this is solely dependent on the amount of money involved.• Small Claims Track- This track deals with the least serious civil disputes, valued from £1000-£10000. An example of a small claims track would be scenario 3 where Mary tripped over a chainsaw Bill left in the corridor. • Fast Track- Deals with more serious civil cases valued at £10000-£25000. If a case is assigned to this track, the judge will normally issue a timetable for the completion of the case within 30 weeks.• Multi-Track- Deals with a lot more serious cases worth £25000 or more. This track deals with cases involving large amounts of money, and dispute between parties that cannot be resolved. However as a result of the seriousness of Multi-Track cases, county courts do not deal with them. The High CourtThe high court deals with much higher value or more complex civil cases. High court is split into three divisions; Queen’s Bench, Chancery and Family. Appeals from any of the three divisions are sent to the divisional courts.Queen’s Bench- Is the biggest division within the High Court. The main tasks of the Queen’s Bench is to deal with high value contract (Multi-Track) and tort cases that are not dealt with the county court. For example Chancery Division- Deals with a varied matters, including; mortgages, trusts, taxation, revenue law and sale of property or land. Family Division- This division deals with everything family related, including; divorces, adoption, domestic abuse and sometimes inheritance disputes. For example scenario 2, where Jane and Saif are separated, however Jane wants divorce but Saif doesn’t. Therefore depending on the value of the divorce, the High Court Family Division would deal with the case accordingly
