Statute of Limitations in Small Claims Court
The Statute of Limitations is an important legal concept to be aware of if you are considering filing a case in Small Claims Court. The Statute of Limitations sets a timeframe in which a plaintiff must file their claim with the court or risk having it not heard due to being legally out-of-date. This means that any claims made after the statutory period has passed may be dismissed and not heard by the court.
Small Claims Courts generally have much shorter Statutes of Limitations than other courts, so it is important to understand how long your state law allows you to file your case. In many states, this period can range from 1-3 years depending on the type of claim being made.
