Small Claims Information

Change of Venue Request

If the complaint has been filed in the wrong precinct, the defendant can file a Motion for Change of Venue.  The form may be obtained from the court. The plaintiff may file an objection to the requested change. If the court orders a change of venue, the case shall be transferred to the proper precinct and the plaintiff shall pay all fees. The motion alleging improper venue must be made before filing the ANSWER. If the defendant fails to file a timely request for a change of venue, that right is waived.
