HOW TO FILE A NEW JERSEY SPECIAL CIVIL PART COMPLAINT FAQS


WHAT IS THE NEW JERSEY SPECIAL CIVIL PART?
To understand how to file a New Jersey Special Civil Part complaint, it is first necessary to understand what the court actually is – it is a subpart of the Superior Court of New Jersey, Law Division.  In the Special Civil Part, disputes involving a limited amount of money -- $15,000 or less – may be heard.   This article does not attempt to discuss all of the details of cases heard in the small claims section or landlord tenant part of the New Jersey Special Civil Part.  This article does not attempt to discuss small claims disputes or landlord tenant cases.


WHAT TYPE OF COMPLANTS ARE FILED IN SPECIAL CIVIL PART?
To understand how to file a New Jersey Special Civil Part complaint, it is first necessary to understand what types of complaints are filed in that court.  The following are some types of complaints filed in Special Civil Part:   
Contract disputes
Property damage disputes, such as car accidents where only property is damaged (and persons do not sustain serious personal injuries)
Bill collection disputes
Security deposit disputes
Disputes between consumers and merchants involving unsatisfactory goods or services
Home improvement disputes
Used car sale disputes
Car repair bill disputes


WHAT TYPES OF COMPLAINTS ARE HEARD IN NEW JERSEY SPECIAL CIVIL PART?
To understand how to file a New Jersey Special Civil Part complaint, it is first necessary to understand what types of complaints are heard in that court.   The court hears lawsuits involving:
(1) Civil actions (exclusive of professional malpractice, probate, and matters cognizable in the Family Division or Tax Court) seeking legal relief when the amount in controversy does not exceed $15,000;
(2) Small claims actions, which are defined as all actions in contract and tort (exclusive of professional malpractice, probate, and matters cognizable in the Family Division or Tax Court) and actions between a landlord and tenant for rent, or money damages, when the amount in dispute, including any applicable penalties, does not exceed, exclusive of costs, the sum of $3,000. Small claims also include actions for the return of all or part of a security deposit when the amount in dispute, including any applicable penalties, does not exceed, exclusive of costs, the sum of $5,000. The Small Claims Section may provide such ancillary equitable relief as may be necessary to effect a complete remedy. Actions in lieu of prerogative writs and actions in which the primary relief sought is equitable in nature are excluded from the Small Claims Section;
(3) Summary landlord/tenant actions;
(4) Summary actions for the possession of real property pursuant to N.J.S.A. 2A:35-1 et seq., where the defendant has no colorable claim of title or possession, or pursuant to N.J.S.A. 2A:39-1 et seq.; 
(5) Summary proceedings for the collection of statutory penalties not exceeding $15,000 per complaint;
(6) Municipal court actions, pursuant to R. 7:1, in the counties of Bergen, Hudson and Warren.
(b) Distinct Negligence Claims. An action for damages resulting from negligence composed of several distinct claims may be brought in the New Jersey County Special Civil Part if the amount recoverable on each claim is within the monetary limit even though the amount recoverable on all claims exceeds that limit.
(c) Waiver of Excess. Where the amount recoverable on a claim exceeds the monetary limit of the Special Civil Part or the Small Claims Section, the party asserting the claim shall not recover a sum exceeding the limit plus costs and on the entry of judgment shall be deemed to have waived the excess over the applicable limit.


WHAT IS THE “REGULAR” NEW JERSEY SPECIAL CIVIL PART COMPLAINT?
To understand how to file a New Jersey Special Civil Part complaint, it is first necessary to understand the difference between small claims cases and regular cases.  New Jersey Special Civil Part complaints that are not landlord tenant or Small Claims cases are typically cases assigned a “DC” case docket number.  You can file your New Jersey Special Civil case as your New Jersey Special Civil case that is assigned a “DC” docket and not your New Jersey small claims complaint that is assigned an “SC” docket even if you are asking for an amount of money less than $3,000.00 – the limit for most New Jersey small claims complaints (or $5,000 if the case involves the return of a rental security deposit).   The regular Special Civil Part has some different procedures and forms from New Jersey Small Claims Court and higher filing fees.  Most New Jersey Special Civil Part complaints involve nonjury trials, meaning the case is only heard by a judge, although a jury trial may be requested for an extra fee.


WHAT IS A NEW JERSEY SMALL CLAIMS COMPLAINT?
New Jersey Small Claims complaints are heard by a subpart of New Jersey Special Civil Part deciding civil disputes involving $3,000 or less or in security deposit claims, $5,000 or less.  This article does not attempt to discuss all the details of small claims disputes or landlord tenant Cases.


HOW DO I KNOW IF MY NEW JERSEY SPECIAL CIVIL PART LAWSUIT INVOLVES A NEW JERSEY SMALL CLAIMS COMPLAINT OR A NEW JERSEY REGULAR SPECIAL CIVIL COMPLAINT?
To understand how to file a New Jersey Special Civil Part lawsuit, you should know the difference between small claims and regular special civil lawsuits.  The New Jersey Special Civil Part hears both New Jersey small claims complaints and “regular” New Jersey Special Civil cases.   New Jersey Small Claims complaints are identified by the number that the New Jersey Small Claims Court assigns to the New Jersey Small Claims complaint – a number beginning in “SC”.  “SC” stands for New Jersey Small Claims Court.  New Jersey Special Civil complaints are identified by the number that the court assigns to the complaint – a number beginning in “DC”.   “DC” stands for “New Jersey District Court” – the old name for New Jersey Special Civil Part Court.  


WHERE ARE SPECIAL CIVIL PART COMPLAINTS FILED?
To understand how to file a New Jersey Special Civil Part complaint, it is first necessary to understand where to file a New Jersey Special Civil Part lawsuit.   Normally, if a defendant is a New Jersey resident or New Jersey business, complaints are filed in the New Jersey county where 1 of the defendants has their address.  If the defendant resides or does business from an office located outside New Jersey, file a New Jersey Special Civil Part lawsuit in the New Jersey county in which the lawsuit arose – that is, where the legal dispute started.  Here are the addresses of the Superior Court Special Civil Part Clerk’s Offices at which to file a New Jersey Special Civil Part complaint:

HOW DO I FILE A NEW JERSEY SPECIAL CIVIL PART COMPLAINT? 
To file a New Jersey Special Civil Part lawsuit, you prepare a written complaint and filing it by either visiting the New Jersey Superior Courthouse or appropriate Court Finance Office in the county where you intend to file the New Jersey Special Civil Part complaint – all of which are located in the county seat of the appropriate county -- or by sending the necessary court paperwork to the appropriate county office of the New Jersey Special Civil Part.  You must pay a fee to file your New Jersey Special Civil Part lawsuit that is determined based on the number of parties you are suing, the dollar amount of the dispute and the type of trial you want.  The fees change, so it is important that you check with the court as to the appropriate fee when you are actually ready to file your papers.  Only persons age 18 or older are able to file a New Jersey Special Civil Part complaint for themselves (minors must file a lawsuit through their parent or guardian).  There are specific rules about where to file New Jersey Special Civil Part lawsuits, which depend on various considerations.  New Jersey Special Civil Part complaint forms are available at the appropriate office of the New Jersey Special Civil Part and via the worldwide web.  However, neither New Jersey Special Civil Part complaint forms, websites nor advice from court personnel are good substitutes for an experienced New Jersey Special Civil Part lawyer’s legal services.  Each case has its own particular legal issues and therefore, its own challenges.  It is extremely important that you prepare your lawsuit very carefully and make sure that you include in the document a detailed list of all factual and legal reasons why you may have a right to win your case without necessarily telling every single thing about your case.   Failure to properly prepare and file a complaint often results in people losing their case.  It is very common for people to file inadequate or incorrect lawsuits that result in the complaints or answers being rejected or being dismissed after filing and before or after trial because of procedural deficiencies.   If you are not represented by an attorney in a case, you are called a “pro se litigant”.  Most complaints filed in Special Civil Part that go to trial are nonjury trials, meaning that only the Judge hears the Case.  For an extra fee paid only when you first file your first complaint (or paid when you file your first answer, if you are responding to the complaint), you may demand a trial by 6 jurors assuming you file the proper papers with the court.  Jury trials are much more complex than nonjury trials and usually require much more preparation, including extensive paperwork.  However, a jury trial demand may result in the facts of your Case being decided by a jury of ordinary people rather than by a single judge.  Even where a plaintiff or defendant requests a jury trial, the legal issues in the trial are normally decided by the Judge hearing the Case. 


WHAT HAPPENS AFTER I FILE MY NEW JERSEY SPECIAL CIVIL PART COMPLAINT? 
To file a New Jersey Special Civil Part complaint, you should understand what happens after you file it.  If your paperwork is correct, the court will accept your filing and service fees and attempt to send the New Jersey Special Civil Part complaint to each of the defendants by first class and certified mail.   If the court fails to successfully serve a defendant, the court shall usually notify you – which then requires you to take further steps to complete service of the complaint.  If the court successfully serves the defendant, the court shall usually notify you.  To understand how to file a New Jersey Special Civil Part lawsuit, it is important to know how long the defendant has to respond to it.  The defendant has 35 days from service of the complaint to file and serve on you a written answer to the complaint.  If the defendant fails to timely file an answer, the court clerk shall default the defendant which then requires you to file detailed paperwork with the court asking the court to enter a default judgment, usually for a specific sum of money.   If the complaint is answered, you may be countersued by one or more defendants, requiring you to file an answer to the countersuit.  If the complaint is answered, the parties may engage in fact finding called discovery.   Many people ignore this step which often leads to their being unprepared for trial.   After discovery, if your complaint is not dismissed – which often happens when people ignore discovery or when their complaint is poorly written or there is no evidence admissible in court to prove the complaint’s allegations – a trial is scheduled.   On the date of your trial, you must appear at court in the proper courtroom.    Usually, many cases are heard on the day that your case is called for trial and it is not uncommon for many people to wait in a single courtroom for their case to be called.  You must be on time to avoid losing your case!  It is best to arrive early to court, since it is not unusual for the courtroom’s seats to fill up quickly!   


AFTER YOU FILE THE COMPLAINT, BE PREPARED TO TRY YOUR CASE 
To understand how to file a New Jersey Special Civil Part lawsuit, it is first necessary to understand what will happen after you file it.  Many people think they just file a New Jersey Special Civil Part complaint and then show up in Court with papers and tell their story.  They do not actually know what happens at a Trial.  This is not always how Trials work!   Never assume you can just show up to Court with documents and use them to support your Trial of your Case or even refer to them at your Trial.  While it is true that you must bring all documents, photographs, videos and other items with you to your Trial that are necessary to prove your Case (preferably originals), even if you bring such documents and items to Court, the Court may refuse to allow you to use them at your Trial.  New Jersey has published cases, laws, regulations, court rules and rules of evidence that are very tricky and that can be used to prevent you from doing much of what you want to do at your Trial.  Accordingly, before trial, you must consult all of the New Jersey Court Rules to determine how you intend to get your documents and items into evidence or how to properly use them at your Trial.  Hearsay rules of evidence are particularly troublesome and you should study them carefully before trial.  For example, it is very common for courts to refuse to allow a party to use or refer to documents or items that the person themselves never prepared.  Often parties stumble into Court with a video, photograph, bill or affidavit or other form of written statement, thinking they are going to use it as proof that they lost money or that they are not responsible for someone else’s damages, only to have a Court judge tell the Court plaintiff or Court defendant that it is not going to even consider such items or documents.  Without the proper preparation, items and documents may never be considered by your Court.  Written requests for information served and answered in advance of a Trial are often useful tools to get the information needed before a Trial to prove a case or a defense.


DON’T EXPECT THE COURT TO BE FAMILIAR WITH THE DETAILS OF YOUR CASE
To understand how to file a New Jersey Special Civil Part lawsuit, you must understand that court isn’t going to roll out the red carpet for you and your case.  That is, your case is usually simply one of many cases the court must deal with.  Special Civil Part is one of the busiest of all of the sections of the Superior Court of New Jersey.  Don’t ever expect Court personnel to be familiar with the details of your Case.  Usually, most Court personnel never read your complaints, answers and motions.   When dealing with court personnel, be prepared to explain those details of your Case that are necessary for them to understand your Case.


CAN I RELY ON COURT PERSONNEL FOR LEGAL ADVICE?
Court employees cannot give you “free” legal advice and a judge may refuse to let you claim that you were right in taking an action (or in deciding not to take action) because you relied on advice from such employees.  Most court employees are not trained lawyers and therefore, they may not know what advice to give you.  Working at the court as a non-judge is not always the same as practicing law.  If you are serious about winning your case, consider getting New Jersey Special Civil Part Complaint help from an experienced New Jersey Special Civil Part attorney.


CAN I RELY ON NEW JERSEY SPECIAL CIVIL PART COMPLAINT FORMS PROVIDED BY THE COURT?
The court usually provides certain types of New Jersey Special Civil Part Complaint forms to the public and those New Jersey Special Civil Part Complaint forms often very helpful.  However, beware relying on New Jersey Special Civil Part Complaint forms provided by the court – the New Jersey Special Civil Part Complaint forms are often deceptively simple, while Special Civil Part cases often are much more complex than they first appear to be.   There is simply no substitute for the services of an experienced New Jersey Special Civil Part lawyer.  New Jersey Special Civil Part Complaint forms don’t talk and New Jersey Special Civil Part Complaint forms and their directions rarely, if ever, cover every possible situation, set of facts or legal issue that may arise in a case.  Each case has its own particular legal issues and therefore, its own challenges.   If you can afford an experienced New Jersey Special Civil Part attorney, it is best to have them give you New Jersey Special Civil Part Complaint help by preparing your paperwork and handling your trial.

without the proper preparation, items and documents may never be considered by the New Jersey Special Civil.  Also, if there are any legal issues to be dealt with at the New Jersey Special Civil trial, you must be prepared to argue them, which may require you to refer to court rules, evidence rules, laws, regulations or published cases.
