Georgia Small Claims Courts

In Georgia, the County Magistrate Court, also referred to as the small claims court, handles money claims under $15,000, per Georgia Code15-10-2. A person may file a claim in Magistrate Court with or without an attorney. You may have an attorney represent you if you choose; this would be at your own expense. The court does not appoint attorneys for civil cases.
