Small Claims and Civil Forms

Sentry Force Security assists clients in the filing, investigation, and evidence gathering of Small Claims cases in Small Claims Court. Our investigators will gather evidence supporting your Small Claims case and testify on their findings before the judge of your case. This not only helps clients throughout the Small Claims process but it also strengthens their cases by adding legitimacy through having a licensed private investigator testify on their behalf.

 

We help clients file almost any civil action in Small Claims Court. Whether you are owed money and seeking a judgment, or you have already won a judgment and are trying to collect, our investigators can help you file and serve the proper civil actions in court. Below are some of the Small Claims Court and General District Court forms we file for clients.

Warrants in Debt are among the most common civil actions we assist clients in filing. This form is a civil claim stating that the named defendant owes the plaintiff a debt and that the plaintiff is seeking a judgment entered against the defendant. The stated principal amount cannot exceed $5,000 if filing in Small Claims Court

Warrants in Detinue are civil claims for the return of property. Plaintiffs seeking to recover property they feel belongs to them would file this form and name the defendant as the party who currently retains the contested property. The value of the property in question must not exceed $5,000 if filing in Small Claims Court.

Summonses for Unlawful Detainer are associated with landlord-tenant disputes. These summonses initiate the eviction process to legally remove a tenant from the property they are renting. Often times landlords will file this summons when tenants have not paid rent and are continuing to occupy the landlord's property. This civil form is outside of the jurisdiction of Small Claims Court and is instead under the jurisdiction of General District Court.

Subpoenas for Witness are summonses used for both civil and criminal hearings in court. Both plaintiffs and defendants can file a subpoena for each witness they wish to summon to testify on their behalf. When subpoeanas are issued, witnesses are compelled to appear in court on the return date to serve as a witness for the summoning party. It is generally advised to alert the witnesses you wish to summon before filing a subpoeana so they can expect to be served.
