IMPORTANT!
Take any proof that supports your case to the hearing, including: witnesses, photos, papers,
receipts, etc. The court will not accept written statements from witnesses. The person must
go to court in person. If you think a witness may not want to go to court, ask the clerk for
subpoena forms. Complete the subpoena as soon as possible so the sheriff can serve them
before court.
The court and clerks are not allowed to give you legal advice,
even if you don’t have a lawyer. This form is a public record.
It is not legal advice. The law may change and it is best to consult with a lawyer.
