Small Claims

The "Self Help Center" link below is intended to guide you as you represent yourself in a small claims action. These matters are often complicated and one set of instructions can not possibly address every case that is filed. Court staff can not assist you as to the best way to handle your situation. If you find you are unable to proceed unrepresented, it is strongly recommended that you get advice from an attorney.
