Small Claims Process
Resolving Your Small Claims Case in the California Courts video provides information about the options for resolving disputes involving $10,000 or less. If someone owes you – or claims you owe them – $10,000 or less, watching this video may help. The video is part of a series that provides information about resolving specific types of cases through the normal court process and through alternative dispute resolution (ADR) processes, which are usually less formal, less expensive, and less time consuming than a trial.
Do It Yourself
We have an online form preparation program available that will ask you to answer questions that are used to complete the forms needed to file a small claim. This program will also allow you to print out all the completed necessary forms.
If you would like the Self-Help Center / Family Law Facilitator's Office to review your forms before you file, then do not make copies until after the Center has reviewed your documents.
