First, a complaint is prepared in accordance with the rules of the court alleging the grounds for the dispute and it is filed with the court. Pay the filing fee. (There is always a fee, right?) Then a summons is prepared also in accord with rules of court and served upon the defendant. Small claims type of courts may provide forms. Upper courts will require the party to prepare the forms.
