Small Claims

In order to file a small claim in our Court, the person or corporation whom you are suing must either live, work or have an office in the Town of Niskayuna. The address you provide the court must be one that is located in the Town and  can not be a PO Box.

The amount of your claim can not exceed $3,000. The filing fee is $10.00 if your claim is for $1,000 or less, and $15.00 if it is over $1,000.

You may file the paperwork at the Court Office during normal business hours.  Corporations and partnerships may not file small claims in the town court. The Court may hear cases brought by DBA's provided they show proof that they are in fact a DBA.
