Our legal system follows the concept that each party covers their own legal costs to initiate or
defend court proceedings; therefore some individuals will pursue or defend a money claim on their own behalf i.e. in a Litigant in Person capacity.  However it gets trickier when the matter is decided since the losing party is usually required to pay the winning parties costs. Furthermore, the Court has discretion over costs and can impose additional costs sanctions if a party has behaved in an unreasonable manner. An added cost award is exceedingly rare, and the court’s discretion in this matter is limited to situations in which the opponent acted unreasonable during the litigation.
