How do you file a claim in conciliation court?
If you are filing a claim, you are the plaintiff in the action. You should contact the Court Administrator’s Office in the county courthouse where you are filing the claim. The Conciliation Court form for filing your claim is available from any Court Administrator’s Office. Upon request, a person from that office will help you complete the form. You must have the following information:

  • Your name and address.
  • The name and address of the Defendant (home address if the defendant is an individual)
  • The amount of the claim
  • Reason for the claim
  • Date your claim arose

The claim must be verified by you. You will also pay the filing fee which is set by the courts. If you win your case, the court may order the defendant to pay these fees to you.

All parties to the action must receive notice stating the date and time the case will be heard. While many cases are heard in court, many cases settle when the defendant receives notice of the hearing. It is your responsibility to tell the Court Administrator, by written notice, if you and the defendant settle your case.
