    Whats better if your having collecting money from people. Give it over to a collection agency and let it go see what happens or go to court ?

    Court. It really doesn't take that much time, and you get ALL of your money. Once you have a judgement, you always have the option of what you want to do with it collection-wise.

    I would rather deal with court than a collections agency to get my money.

    I think collections can do more damage to credit then a court can. I could be wrong. I also think you have to show up to every court date which could be a hassle as its right in the middle of the day.

    Court is cheaper though.
