FAQ - Civil Cases in Limited Jurisdiction Courts

What is the difference between small claims and a civil case?

Small claims can be used if you are suing for $3,500 or less. If you are suing for less than $10,000, you can file a civil case in justice court. Also there are no attorneys allowed in small claims (unless both sides agree), and there are no appeals in small claims. Attorneys and appeals are allowed in civil claims.
