Sure, here is where you can get a Small Claims Complaint, it is the 5th one up from the bottom:

http://www.circuitclerk.co.st-clair.il.us/forms/Pages/default.aspx?folder=Small+Claims+Division%7c

Small claims are those under $5,000. You file the complaint and pay the fee at the court house. Their website does not have a lot of information on it other than the form, so you should just give the Clerk's office a call.

Please kindly rate the question so I may be credited. Thank you. You can still ask follow-up questions.

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.
