Small claims courts provide a simple, informal and inexpensive option for resolving cases where the claim is $7,000 or less.
File online: The easiest way to file a Small Claim is using Small Claims Guide and File. This program will help you fill out the forms to file a small claim by providing questions which you can answer in plain language. It will not give you legal advice. Once you have completed the interview, the program will generate filled-in forms that you can electronically file in the proper court.
All English forms are listed on this page below, but some small claims forms are also available in additional languages at these links:
Chinese | Haitian Creole | Khmer | Portuguese | Russian | Spanish | Vietnamese
