You can absolutely subpoena witnesses to a small claims court. There is not a charge for the Court to issue a Subpoena, but there is a service fee of approximately $60.00 and a witness fee of Ten Dollars ($10.00). Normally a Ten Dollar ($10.00) must be attached to the top of the Subpoena. You will go down to the clerk at the court house you want to file and request a small claims subpoena form. You will need to provide the name of the witness that you want to come to court.
You will also specifically ask for any papers you want that person to bring to trial.
Once you submit this paper to the clerk the clerk will have it issued and will sign and stamp your subpoena as filed.
