Small claims court vs. county court

Miami, FL |

I have damage greater than $5.000. I know you can only demand damage up to $5,000 in small claims court.

As a pro-se, how are procedures in small claims court different than county court?

Small claims is different from county court in a couple different ways. The main differences in small claims have to do with discovery procedures (how you request information from the other party) and the court automatically assigning you a court date. I've attached the rules for both small claims courts and general civil procedure.
