If the statute has passed, can you move a case from small claims to unlimited or limited jurisdiction if you change your mind about the amount you are seeking (and can of course)?
Probably....as long as the claim is the same and you are asking for more damages to be proven at the trial. Amend the complaint
You should file a motion to transfer immediately asking for a larger amount of damages.
