The party you are suing must reside, work or operates a business in the Tonopah Township. You must have both a current physical and mailing address of the defendant. If your claim meets this criteria, you will file your claim at the Tonopah Justice Court.
You are 18 years of age or older.
You have demanded payment of the amount for which you are suing. A letter sent by certified mail with return receipt serves as proof that a demand has been made. Allow sufficient time for a reply. If there is no satisfactory reply, bring in your post office certified mail receipt or other proof, and we will file your claim.
Your claim is for money only and does not exceed $10,000. If your claim is for more that $10,000, you may waive any amount over that sum and sue for just $10,000; however, you cannot divide a claim and file separate actions to reduce the sum claimed to meet the maximum allowed. If your claim exceeds $10,000, we suggest you contact an attorney.
