Georgia Small Claims Courts

Created by FindLaw's team of legal writers and editors.

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.
