Small Claims is a special Court where disputes are resolved quickly and inexpensively. The rules are simple and informal. Lawyers are not allowed in Small Claims Court.
You cannot ask for more than $10,000 in a claim if you are filing as a "natural person" or $5,000 if you are filing as an entity (corporation, limited partnership, limited liability company, etc.) You can file as many claims as you want for up to $2,500 each in a year. But you can only file two claims a year that demand more than $2,500.
The ACCESS Center can show you how to fill out the forms through the entire small claims case: preparing your claim, serving a defendant, preparing for Court, and collecting a judgment after you have won.
All Small Claims MEdiation is TEMPORARILY SUSPENDED
