I am suing, in a small claim court, a moving company in Hillsborough county, Florida.
According to the "Help #6, Information For Filing Small Claims Suits $5000 Or Less" ref:
file:///C:/Users/Dr.%20Parvin%20CARTER/Downloads/Help%20file%206%20Information%20for%20filing%20small%20claims.pdf
One of the documents needed for filing a small claims is "One original summons" in addition to Statement of claims and exhibits in support of the claims.
What is original summons, how do I get that before filing a small claims?
Thanks
Lawyer: Legal Eagle, Lawyer replied 7 months ago

Thanks so much for getting back to me and thanks for your patience. The summons is something that will be created by the court once you file the lawsuit. So, if you have your complaint and you pay the filing fee, the clerk will provide a summons to you that you can serve, along with a copy of the filed complaint, on the defendant. What other questions did you have for me today?

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
