    I looked at several county court small claims websites for FL and in all cases they say that a parent, a legal guardian, or an attorney can represent a minor child (under 18).

    I suggest you visit the small claims court website for your county for more information. However, if the child is a defendant you should check out the county where the suit was filed.

    Thanks. Odd this isn't codified in the Florida Statutes or in the rules.

    Just a follow-up for future readers. I attended a pretrial hearing today in small claims court, represented my son against a large Florida corporation and reached a settlement. No objections, no problems.
