Law BooksGeneral Civil cases involve lawsuits between two or more parties involving amounts up to $25,000.

You have the right to a jury trial, the right to be represented by an attorney and the right to an appeal beyond this court. The court does not appoint an attorney for civil matters. Corporations must be represented by an attorney.

If the court decides in your favor, it does not automatically mean that the defendant will pay the judgment and costs. You may have to take additional legal steps (i.e. garnishment, execution, recovery of possession) to obtain your money. The Court does not collect the money for you.
