Small Claims FAQs

Who can sue in small claims court?

As long as you are 18 years of age, of sound mind and body, and you're suing on your own claim, you can bring a case in small claims court. If you are a minor under 18 years of age, your complaint must be filed by a parent or guardian. If a claim is being filed on behalf of an association or other entity that's not a natural person, a regular employee of the entity must act on the entity's behalf. The courts prefer the employee to have firsthand knowledge of the issue in dispute.
