Civil claims can be made over a number of matters and are typically made for a sum of money owed, or for claims of damage.

The court that will hear your claims and the process to be followed will depend on the amount of money or damages being claimed.

$25,000 or less

Minor Claim 

$25,001 to $100,000​

General Claim

Over $100,000​

District or Supreme Court

 

While Civil claims can be made to the Supreme Court, cost penalties exist if the amount awarded is below a specific amount. This threshold is based on the type of claim being made.
