Small Claims Information
A small claims action is started by completing a small claims summons and complaint. Information on filing this form and other small claims forms are available on the Wisconsin Court System’s website.
E-filing is available at wicourts.gov
When the action is filed, the Clerk of Courts office will schedule a “return date” and insert this court date on the summons and complaint. An affidavit of non-military service is also required to be completed at the time of filing. Appearance by both parties on the return data is mandatory.
