Points to Remember
The court clerks are available to offer you assistance in processing your small claims matter. Court clerks are not attorneys and are forbidden by law to give legal advice.
The court can render money judgments but has no power to force someone to do something or to stop doing something.
By having your case tried in the small claims division, you give up the following rights.
The right to be represented by an attorney;
The right to have a jury trial;
The right to appeal the final decision of the court.
The court does not collect the money for you once you have obtained a judgment.
Have your paperwork, including the case number, available when contacting the court.
