Civil Division

The civil division handles cases in court in which the amount of money in dispute does not exceed $15,000.00.

THE COURT CAN NOT GIVE YOU LEGAL ADVICE

If you have any questions, you are advised to seek legal counsel. The court can not appoint an attorney to represent you in civil matters.

Landlord tenant disputes and appeals to the Bureau of Motor Vehicles are filed in this division. Please keep in mind that the civil division is separate from the small claims division which only handles cases of $6,000.00 or less.

To file a civil case in the Fremont Municipal Court, the action must have occurred or the defendant must reside in the court's jurisdiction.
