Civil court filings pertain to documentation for all civil court cases, which are roughly defined as all cases that are non-criminal in nature. These records are also those that govern private citizens and are to be distinguished from international law and military law as well.
Civil court filings are those with less than ten thousand dollars involved, while cases that deal with more than this amount are usually tried at the Supreme Court. For those cases with less than five thousand dollars at stake, the magistrate will be the one responsible for deciding if this can be tried at a small claims court. Civil documents are divided into several groups depending on the different laws that they fall under.
