    What Court is right for me?

    CAUTION: Figuring out the right court to file your case in, or the way to respond to a case, is more complicated than finding the closest court to you. The court your case should take place in can depend on several factors including:

    • Where you live
    • Where the other side lives
    • The subject matter of the case
    • and more.

    If you are unsure of where to file your case it is a good idea to get legal advice before going further. You can also go to the ask a question section of our website for more guidance.
