The definition of "small claim" is broader than the definition of "causa de menor complexidade", which is a claim involving less complex civil matters (e.g., evictions for personal use). In Brazil, a small claim may refer to a civil or criminal matter. Civil claims involving small amounts or less complex matters (e.g., evictions for personal use) may be filed before a small claims civil court known as Juizado Especial Cível. Criminal claims involving less serious offenses may be filed before a small claims criminal court known as Juizado Especial Criminal.
