Small Claims Service

“Service” or “service of process” are the legal terms used to describe the act of giving notice of a lawsuit or court hearing to another party. There are several different methods and very specific time limits by which you must have the other party served. The type of service you are required to use depends on the type of forms you are filing. If you do not have the other party served properly (within the correct time limits and using the correct method), the court cannot hear or decide your case.

Below you will find basic instructions for handling your court matter and most of the forms you will need to get from the beginning to the end of the process. You have the option to:

  • Print the forms in PDF or
  • Complete the Word Fillable forms on-line

If a form is listed but not linked to a PDF or Word document, you must obtain that form from the office in which your matter is being handled.

Please keep in mind that not all forms are due at the same time. Review the Instructions provided to determine in what order to complete each form and other tasks required.

Hint: ONLY COMPLETE THE TASKS IN THE ORDER THEY ARE LISTED - Read ahead, but do not work ahead.
