SMALL CLAIMS COURT
The mandate of the Small Claims Court is to hear and determine cases for matters such as unpaid loans, credit card debt, unpaid products, merchandise, equipment, services, rental arrears, damages etc. to a maximum dollar amount of $35,000.00. The Small Claims Court was designed with the idea in mind that an ordinary person with no legal education could access the court system to solve small balance disputes in a timely and cost efficient manner. As the dollar figure has increased, so to has the complexities of each matter.
