Dear sir,
Whether 5 cheques for one legal enforceable liability.

What court see legal enforceable liability.

5 different cases will be expensive to you. Filing 5 cases does not guarantee that accused /respondent will settle.

You have not stated how you got 5 cheques.

You have to give legal notice within 30days of cheque bounce and notice period is 15days to settle issues or else within 30days you have to file case/complaint against accused as per jurisdiction.

Feel free to contact.

The object of litigation should always be positive. Whether the cheques have come into your hands as a result of one transaction ? If yes then only
one matter will be filed. If no, separate matters May be filed .
