A replevin is a case involving the return of movable property (not monetary debt or real estate) to an individual when the property is valued at less than $10,000 or you leased or gave credit to an individual in the amount of $25,000 or less for the purchase of movable property and the individual has failed to make good on the credit or lease. Repleveins are handled as Small Claims matters in the Civil Court and are filed in Room C-167 of the Civil Division of the Waukesha County Courthouse.
