Civil Courts Division
The Civil Department handles a variety of cases including mortgage foreclosures, professional malpractice, auto negligence, contract and indebtedness, personal injury, and eminent domain. Claims not exceeding $5,000.00 are handled by the Small Claims division within the Civil Department. Claims in excess of $5,000.00 but less than $15,000.00 are handled by the County Civil division. Claims exceeding $15,000.00 are handled by the Circuit Civil division. Due to the complexity of these types of cases, we recommend that you retain an attorney. The Deputy Clerks are not allowed to provide legal advice. If you require further information, please contact the Civil Department located in Room 245, or contact (352)540-6377.
