Civil suits may be filed for up to $15,000.00 with Costs and Attorney Fees added to the judgment. The fees are tiered depending upon the amount of the suit.
$51.00 - If the sum claimed does not exceed $2,500
$101.00 - If the sum claimed exceeds $2,500 but does not exceed $5,000
$176.00 - If the sum claimed exceeds $5,000 but does not exceed $10,000
- $251.00 - If the sum claimed exceeds $10,000 but does not exceed $15,000
Due to the complexity of this type of action, an attorney is usually retained. The court supplies NO forms or procedures.
