Are family law cases unlimited civil cases and what does that mean? I am trying to file paperwork but not aware of meaning of unlimited cases. Are there statutes pertaining to unlimited reasons that family law civil cases, are unlimited?
Basically, limited civil refers to cases where the dispute is less than $25k. Everything else is unlimited (holding aside small claims which certainly has nothing to do with family court). See Code of Civil Procedure § 35 and following chapters about organization of the courts and jurisdiction.
If you find this answer helpful, please say so. This is a general response to a general question posted openly on-line. Answering this question does not create an attorney-client relationship or any obligation on the part of the attorney to take any action or respond further. There are often deadlines, time limits and procedures which must be followed to enforce legal rights or handle a case. The failure to take appropriate action as provided by law may lead to the loss of rights. If you would like to hire Mr. Bradley you will need to arrange a consultation and enter into a written fee agreement with him.
This is apples and oranges....
Civil cases deal with monetary damages that the you are trying to obtain from the other party.
Family law deals with divorces, spousal support, child support, child custody, and property/debt division and rights.
They are two separate types of courts.
