FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) Allen Superior Court’s Small Claims Division will close next week as it moves to a new location.
The division currently located in the Allen County Courthouse Annex will be closed July 27-31 in order to move its offices to 1 W. Superior St., the former home of the Allen County Highway Department and Election Board at Calhoun Street. Normal business will resume at the new location Aug. 3.
The new location will offer Small Claims 10,000 additional square feet to handle its 25,000 caseload. The division handles small claims cases with damage limits of $6,000 including home repairs, auto accidents, injuries, and landlord-tenant disputes like evictions, the court said.
The facility will offer more accessibility for the public and court staff, as well, the court said.
While the office is closed and the offices are moved, emergency requests for protective orders will continue to be heard at the Allen County Courthouse.
