How Do I Prepare For A Small Claims Hearing?

You should gather any documentation (evidence) to show the Judge or arbitrator that you are not responsible (liable) for the wrong the Claimant is complaining about. A good way to think about evidence is to treat it as the tool for building the steps in your story. The evidence you bring to court illustrates your side of the story. It establishes the proof of your defense. The following items are all acceptable forms of evidence:

  • Written contracts
  • Letters
  • Leases
  • Emails
  • Receipts
  • Recordings
  • Canceled checks
  • Money orders
  • Warranties
  • Advertisements
  • Estimates in writing
  • Damaged object(s)
  • Articles of clothing
  • Other written documents
  • Or any such evidence that proves you are not responsible
