PA MAGISTRATE CIVIL COURTS – CHANGE IN MONETARY FILING LEVELS

Stroudsburg

– Effective January 22, 2011, the Pennsylvania magisterial courts raised the maximum amount to file against a defendant in a civil complaint from $8,000 to $12,000.  This change encompasses magisterial courts throughout Pennsylvania.

On November 23, 2010 the Harrisburg legislature passed the law to enable magistrate courts to increase these amounts.

The filing fees will remain the same.  Fees are available by requesting them from the individual magisterial court in your district.
