Small Claims Courts

California Process Servers

Small claims courts have certain requirements to be addressed before your case concerns are heard. First you must make a formal request to defendant respondent requesting compensations. Explain your reason and present evidence to support your request.

If defendant respondent does not reply within a specified time frame, then you may move forward preparing your case. The SC-100 form (small claims) has to be correctly filled out. Now you're ready to file your case with the court where the case is to be heard.

Once you have filed your case with the court, notification has to be completed, (service of process) giving defendant respondent notice of the pending matter before the courts.

When the small claims SC-100 form has been properly served, a SC-104 form (proof of service) has to be filled out and filed with the appointed court declaring completion of service of process.

This SC-104 form is to be filled out by a process server, sheriff or an adult over the age of 18. After completion of these details you are ready to prepare yourself for your day in court.

California small claims courts rules can be slightly difference depending on which county and city your case is filed. We suggest that you review the courts public information (links) provided before you start filing your case.

This can be valuable information such as:

  • What court do I file my case?
  • Where is the department do I seek help?
  • Do I hire a process server or do I request the court to assist me in the service of process?
  • How much time will I have before the hearing once my case is filed?
  • If judgment is awarded what is the next step?
