What is Magistrate Court?

Magistrate Court is often called the people’s court, because it helps regular citizens represent themselves, without an attorney, in cases against other people. Using the Magistrate Court is quicker, more affordable, and more efficient in cases involving $15,000 or less.

The first step of most legal processes begins with paperwork—argh! But we’ve got a free tool that can help you find the correct form and fill it out. At the end of the simple question-and-answer process (called an ‘interview), you can print your forms to take to your Magistrate Court and file. If your county offers e-filing, you’ll be able to use that option at the end of this process to file your forms electronically.
