Good afternoon Ann, from Savannah,
Thanks for your Accept.
In Georgia there is no form to use when you need to file an amended complaint; you failed to tell me you were in Georgia.
Georgia technically does not have a small claims court--we have the Magistrate Court. Magistrate Court is much like superior court in terms of the events leading up to trial.
In a typical small claims court you can not just file an amended pleading. In Magistrate Court you can.
There are two ways to go here.
If your lawsuit is still within the statute of limitations
, you can ask the court to dismiss your first suit WITHOUT PREJUDICE, and then file a new suit against all the parties. You can probably do that yourself.
If you want to amend your lawsuit to add a new defendant, (the Association) you will have to file an Amended Complaint. You can go to a local law library and you will find a format to use to assist you in preparing the Amended Complaint. Alternatively, you can retain an attorney to represent you.
That is about the size of it.
Good luck to you.
