Small Claims

Small claims courts are designed to provide a simple, informal and inexpensive option for resolving cases where the amount at issue is $7,000 or less.

You may bring a small claim only in the court for the location where either the plaintiff or the defendant lives or has a place of business or employment. A small claim against a landlord arising from the rental of an apartment may also be brought where the apartment is located. You may find it easier to enforce a decision in your favor if you bring your small claim where the defendant lives or works, but you aren't required to do so.
