The Case tab is where you select the court location, the category of the case and the case type.
At the Case tab, click on the required selections for Location, Case Category, and Case type. These options are only select-able when Starting a New Case.
- Location: The court where your case will be filed.
- Case Category: The general type of case you are filing. Some examples are Civil, Family, and Probate. After you pick a Category, you will see a list of Case Types within that Category.
- Case Type: The specific type of case you are filing. If you can't find the case type you need, change the Case Category (or Location) to see other available case types. If you don't know your case type, please contact the court.
NOTE: Some courts may offer additional input fields or dropdown menus, such as Procedures/Remedies or Damage Amount. Only fields highlighted in red are required fields; you may progress without filling them out. If you have questions regarding what information should be selected in these optional fields or what these optional fields refer to, please consult with the clerks at the court you are filing in for further assistance.
After all selections are confirmed, click on Parties.
