Small Claims

Small Claims

Small claims court cases involve any issue where the disputed money or property is valued less than $4000 in Kansas and $5000 in Missouri. Landlord/tenant issues, contractor issues or automotive repair disputes are common topics. The use of a mediator can be very helpful in these scenarios, since parties are not allowed to be represented by attorneys in Kansas small claims court, and may be unfamiliar with the court process. When small claims cases are mediated to a mutually acceptable resolution, the parties are more likely to follow through with their own agreement than when something is court ordered.
