What should I do if I want to sue somebody for more than $5,000.00 (more than the Small Claims limit)?
The Small Claims limit is $5,000.00. If you want to sue for more than that amount, you need to file your claim as a Civil Action. You may consult an attorney to file a Summons and Complaint for you or you may reduce the amount to $5,000.00 and do it yourself in Small Claims. The Court does not have forms for filing Complaints.
