Small claims court is a judicial branch of the Ministry of Attorney General that provides a vehicle for individuals or corporations to file a lawsuit (called a claim) for money or the return of personal property with a value of $25,000 or less, not including the interest and associated costs.

Claims for money owed under an agreement, such as:
- unpaid accounts for goods or services sold and delivered
