How much to file Civil cases ? - what is the Statue limitation on doing so ? - What is the Max dollar amount of recovery - and please read

here to see if I should combine or separate the charges Landlord evicted me and instead of have the constable there while stuff was taken out she and her cohorts stole it as they wanted and sold it // it was a Lot of stuff must of took they awhile -- And I have to sue her for Slander - Deflamation of character - mental anguish - theft of property - and 2 months rent - should be sexual assault and I should file a mechanical lien but won't - I do need to sue her also for false arrest - false imprisonment and ALL that followed

All claims against a party are normally raised in one complaint, in which all claims are raised as separate counts. The statute of limitations may vary depending on the claim, so the shortest one would control. Because of the complexity of your case, you need a lawyer; these claims include claims at law and in equity, which a small claims court cannot handle. As to the damages, in most cases you do not need to be specific in the complaint itself, the value of your claims would be worked out in discovery and at trial. You cannot file a mechanics lien for conversion, the proper claim is a civil suit.

Thank You - kind of what I thought all together but didn't know - as far as lawyer and the complexity it isn't really as bad or as much as it seems and or won't be - the fact of the matter is they filed false police reports - had me arrest stole my motorcycle and who knows what that night and the next few days - 4 days after got a eviction notice and then went to stealing and selling at will - by law I do know that Nothing can be removed without the Constable or such present and thee was not - no way about they stole every thing I owned on the land lords woman's charge terrioristic threat {not spelled right } the Grand Jury read her statement and seen she was a lying crazy nut and instead of indicting me for Aggravated Assault like on the other statement they put it as dis-orderly conduct // I don't know if you caught the rest of the story in my other question pertaining but I called the law and they came out and asked if the 2 brothers was going to leave me alone and they said Yes and then about 45 minutes later they got the woman involved and called the law and said I had a knife and threatened 1 brother and then the woman - woman wasn't there in the drive way where it started nor when they kicked the door in with knives in their hands nor when the law came the first time

Every state has different fees for filing complaints. In addition some states have tiered systems where you can get a nonjury trial in small claims court for far less than suing in civil court. In small claims court there is also a limit on how much you can sue for.

You'll need to look into statute of limitations for the time limit, and as for the maximum you can receive, you'll need to research tort reform.

If you can gather piks from friends of the contents of you apartment, i.e. at parties, visiting, ect,..It can help with your claims too.
Small claim court may limit the amount you can receive.
A lawyer will get half but he will get you a lot more than you can on your own.

That is going to be according to county standards then.
So contact the county attorney and go from there.
It might be too late already. I don't know.
But call them on Monday and see.

Then it sounds like you need to contact your country attorney.

How windy and cold depending on which part you live in.
But dry.
It is really high desert.
We are getting the snow pack built up already though so that is good.
It helps the hunters to have snow on the ground to track too.
