The county civil court of general jurisdiction can hear cases about almost any matter under state law. This can include contracts, personal injury, discrimination, eviction, and other claims. The civil court system also recognizes a number of specialized courts, like the probate court, family court and the well known small-claims court. These courts cover matters such as divorce, child support, custody, nonpayment or non return of goods or debt, property damage, and other similar cases. Cases involving contracts can cover both written and oral agreements and related disputes.
