Since I have been living in the Santa Clara County for the past ten years, it is vital  that I understand all the steps involved in making a small claims court. I even intend on  living in the county for much longer, but that depends on the direction my career takes  me. A small claims court is a specially designed court that works to resolve disputes  quickly and inexpensively. The two parties, the plaintiff and defendant, are not allowed  to have a lawyer in court; however, one may ask a lawyer for advice before appearing in  court. A claim cannot be made for more than $5,000 or $7,500 if you are a natural  person. For claims being made higher than this, one would want to go sue in the civil  division of the trial court.  If person has two claims to be made, the total amount of both  claims cannot exceed more than $2,500 each. Small claim courts have generally been  designed for one to sue individuals, sole proprietors, and corporations. Meanwhile,  plaintiffs will sue for money or property. From my research, I found out what it takes it  go through with a small claim in the Superior Court of California. I will continue to  discuss about whom can file a claim, the costs, and the steps involved when filling out the  forms.  Anyone ages eighteen and up can sue in the small claims court. If a person is not
