Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Good afternoon. Based upon what you shared above, this would be a matter for small claims court. Small Claims Court is a judicial forum to hear and decide civil cases involving claims for MONEY ONLY, for $10,000 or less, which fits what you described above.
If you filed it incorrectly and in a different court, you would need to voluntarily dismiss it and refile it in small claims court. Amending it would be the remedy if you needed to change something in the complaint, to relate back to the original filing but in this case, if it is in the wrong court, it would need to be dismissed and refiled.
I just wanted to follow up and see if you had any other questions or needed me to clarify something. I am here to help, so please let me know. Thanks!
