In general terms, the procedures in a District Court are stricter. So, yes, it would be a good idea to at least consult a lawyer to review what you have filed and to go over with you what to expect.
It also makes a difference as to whether you think the defendant is going to appear and/or contest the eviction. There are strict procedures as to how a defendant must handle his part of this as well -something to discuss with a lawyer that you make familiar with your fact situation.
For future reference, most evictions are handled through justice of the peace courts because: it is much faster; it is much cheaper; and it is expected than no lawyers are involved. JP courts give you more leniency as to procedural rules and something closer to instant justice.
