About the Program
Has someone sued you in Small Claims Court? This program will help you respond to that lawsuit.
The program will produce a Small Claims Answer that you will be able to file with the Court. This is not the interview you need to start a Small Claims case, respond to a motion for financial disclosure, or to ask the Court to enforce a judgment.
If you want to sue the person who is suing you, you can use this program to fill out a counterclaim with your answer.
Before you start, you will need:
- the Small Claims Complaint
- information about your income and expenses
If you want to sue the person who is suing you (file a counterclaim), you will also need information about your claim against them.
Small Claims Court is meant to be easy to use for people who are representing themselves. You can hire a lawyer if you want to, but you are not required to hire a lawyer.
