How do I File a Complaint? We have Five Portals to use when interacting with Love Court Online. They categorize our Members' emotional disputes into Lovers, Family, Friends, Teens and Co-workers. Select the portal of your choice on the Home Page or use the Dockets pull down menu. On many internal pages there is a floating menu of Dockets. All of the Portals have five buttons. Any of those five buttons take you to the courtroom to File a Complaint. You may also use the pull down list on the Courtroom in the Main Menu and select File a Complaint.
What is a Complainant? The Complainant is the person who starts the case by filing a Complaint against a loved one, friend, family member or co-worker to prove they are right.
What is a Respondent? A Respondent is the person involved in a dispute with the Complainant. A Respondent receives the Complaint via email. They have 48 hours to respond to the Complaint with an Answer they can file directly from the email sent to them. So, if you have been served by a Complaint filed against you at Love Court Online, you would be wise to fle an Answer and tell your side of the story. That way our judges have all of the facts upon which to base their decision. Even if the Respondent does not file an Answer to the Complaint, the Case will be submitted to our judges panel and one of our trained judges will issue a Decree declaring Who's Right and Who's Wrong!
What is a Decree? A Decree is the written decision of the online judge assigned to your case. After the judge reads the Complaint and Answer, the judge renders the Decree declaring who is right and who is wrong. The Decree is emailed to both the Complainant and the Respondent. Decrees are neither binding nor are they legal. Our site is entirely for your entertainment. It provides bragging rights to the winner to say "I told you so!"
What arguments do you handle? We handle any and all disputes in any type of personal relationship. Our online judges are screened, tested, and trained to handles only cases in particular categories, based upon their strengths, age and life experiences.

Who are the judges? Our trained judges are people with everyday life experience. We have problems like yours. We are fathers, mothers, brothers and sisters. We are spouses, lovers, boyfirends and girlfriends. We have had disputes, lent advise and needed it. We are here to provide unbiased, objective, neutral and fair opinions without being influenced by emtional baggage. We are here to listen to you, both of you; and we will tell you, in our opinion: Who's Right and Who's Wrong! Love Court Online is modeled after our modern courts, but it is not part of the justice system. Our judges are not "real" judges, and our Decrees have no legal effect. However, our judges are screened, tested and trained in our proprietary methods to render fair and insightful Decrees declaring who is right and who is wrong in your troubling personal dispute.
What is the Case of the Week? The Case of the Week is one that we feel is interesting and entertaining due to the controversy, humor or uniqueness of the subject matter. The Case of the Week is published on the Home Page to show our visitors what goes on at Love Court Online and for the entertainment of our members. All participants, their real names and email addresses are kept confidential and anonymous. In fact the entire process and our entire site are secure and protect any and all users' personal identity and contact information. Our Grand Jury members get to vote on The Case of the Week and decide who they think is right, and the results of the poll are displayed for other members. Regardless of our Judge's decision, our Members can vote for who they think is right. Our Love Court Online Members don't always agree with our Judge. That makes for interesting situations. This usually means stay tuned for an Appeal!
What is the Grand Jury? The Grand Jury consists of all Members of Love Court Online. Sign up for the Grand Jury and you will be granted a Free Membership at Love Court Online.

Premium Members can access the vast Case Archives, our Case Library where finalized cases are indexed by Docket and Subject, making cases of interest accessible and easier to find.

No matter how old a case is, you may cast your vote to agree or disagree with our Judge's Decree on every case published on Love Court Online.
How does it work? We use a small claims court process. A person files a Complaint, and thus becomes the Complainant. The Complaint is automatically logged in our case management system and it is sent by email to the other person involved in the dispute. The person receiving the Complaint becomes the Respondent. The Respondent has 48 hours to File an Answer. At this point, whether or not the Respondent has filed an Answer, the case is assigned to one of our judges to render a Decree declaring who is right and who is wrong. The Decree is sent to the Complainant and the Respondent. You will receive a Decree within two days after the Answer or the 48 hour waiting period has expired. If either party does not agree with the judges's Decree, they can file an Appeal to have the case reviewed by another judge after giving additional facts. THE ENTIRE PROCESS IS ANONYMOUS AND THE PERSONAL IDENTITY OF THE INDIVIDUALS IS CONFIDENTIAL. NOT EVEN OUR JUDGES WILL GAIN ACCESS TO YOUR REAL NAME OR EMAIL ADDRESS.
What if I want to appeal? If you want to appeal the Decree, go to the File an Appeal selection under My Courtroom in the main menu. Additionally, both the Complainant and Respondent are provided a "File an Appeal" link with the Decree they receive by email. Whether you are the Complainant or the Respondent, you may add additional information to be considered during the Appeal process. The same procedure as in the original Complaint is followed for an Appeal. Whoever files the Appeal becomes the Appellant, and the person receiving the Appeal becomes the Appellee.
Can I choose the judges gender? You can choose whether the judge will be male or female, or leave it to us. Many times, when a judge renders their Decree, our users appeal, requesting a judge of the opposite gender for a different point of view. (This option is a coming feature not currently available to free complaints - Editor)
How many appeals can I make? There is no limit to the number of Appeals you can make, and you will be able to offer additional information each time. However, once you choose to go to our Supreme Panel, where three judges render a joint decision, The Supreme Panel Decree decision becomes final and is the end of that particular case.
What is the Supreme Panel? The Supreme Panel at Love Court Online is the final decision maker, consisting of a panel of three judges who have not yet been involved in your case. Together, they review your case, its' history, and jointly render The Supreme Panel Decree that becomes the final word which is not appealable. You can appeal as often as you like, but once the Supreme Panel has rendered their ruling, the case stops. That is the final decision of the Love Court Online system.
