Introduction
The following information is provided to give you an overview of Small Claims Court and to help you navigate your way through the process.
 
Read the Small Claims Packet in the “How-To” section of the website BEFORE filling out your form. Determine the proper venue for filing your claim. Select the name of the court by clicking the drop down arrow at the top of the form.

Fill in all the fields that apply to you as the plaintiff or defendant. You will not be able to type information into those parts of the form reserved for court staff.

Print out at least three completed copies of the form and bring them to the court with your fee (copy for you and a copy for each defendant listed).

You also may bring ONE completed form and have the court make four copies for you (you will be charged a $.50 per page copy fee if you choose this method).

If you are a defendant filing a counterclaim:
The instructions for filling out and filing a counterclaim are the same as those for filing an initial Small Claims complaint. When filing the counterclaim you must submit your answer to the plaintiff’s complaint at the same time you submit your counterclaim filing.

NOTE: You can save completed forms to your computer’s hard drive. If you want to clear the entire form to start over, click on the reset tab at the bottom of the page.
