What is a County Civil case?

A County Civil case is any civil matter that falls within the jurisdiction of County Court. Detail
may be found in Chapter 34 of the Florida Statutes. County Civil cases include several different
types of matters:

  • Small Claims
    Disputes involving money damages where the amount at issue does not exceed
    $5,000
    excluding costs, interest and attorney fees. Click here for more information.
  • Replevins
    Disputes involving property that someone will not return. Click here for more information.
  • Civil Actions
    Civil Lawsuits not within Small Claims jurisdiction where the amount at issue does not
    exceed $15,000
    excluding costs, interest and attorney's fees.
    ***Note: Those civil lawsuits where the amount at issue exceeds $15,000 excluding
    costs, interest, and attorney's fees are within the jurisdiction of the Circuit Court.

How do I file a Civil or Equity Action (up to $15,000)?

Civil Actions are filed in the County Civil Division, but the Clerk's Office cannot help you with any
paperwork. Please consult your Attorney.


***Please understand that Judges, Judicial Assistants, Clerks of Court,
and Sheriff's Department employees CANNOT practice law or give you
legal advice. They can ONLY point out the existence of certain procedures,
but CANNOT tell you how to follow them or how effective they will be. ONLY
A LAWYER CAN GIVE YOU LEGAL ADVICE. You should talk with a lawyer
if you have any questions about your rights.
