What is small claims court?

Small Claims Court is a tool that is available to you for settling disputes or establishing and reducing your claims to judgment. It allows a person a quick, inexpensive and fair determination of claims up to $6,000. If your claim is for more than that amount and you still elect to file in the small claims division, you give up or "waive" your right to collect more than the $6,000 jurisdictional amount.
