Step 3 Create Demand Letter
Dispute makes creating your professional demand letter accurate and simple. You will submit information on your case, the plaintiff (you), the defendant (the person or business you are suing).
Dispute’s Demand Letter tool let you edit your letter and see how it will look live!
After you submit your letter, it will be sent via Priority Mail and the recipient usually receives the letter within 3 business days. Keep track of its status on your Dashboard.
Step 4 Prepare Small Claims
Select the right courthouse for your case to begin filing. If you have questions about which courthouse to select, check out our article: How to find the right courthouse for your small claims case
Give us information on when the dispute happened, how you calculate the dollar amount you are requesting, and a few other short questions, then we will handle the paperwork from there.
Step 5 File Small Claims

If you'd like Dispute to take care of everything, choose Option 2: File Online Through Disputeand pay us the Government fee (we pass this straight to the court).
