Small Claims

In order to file a small claims action in our Court, the person or entity you are suing resides, or has an office for the transaction of business or regular employment within the Town of Duanesburg. In other words, the address you provide the court must be located in the Town. You do need an exact address and the amount of your claim cannot exceed $3,000.
Once you have this information, you or, if you suffer from an illness or infirmity, someone on your behalf, must come to the Court to file a "statement of claim" at the Court Office. Claims may be filed Monday & Wednesday from 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. Tuesday from 12:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. and Thursday from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. (excluding holidays)
