Justice Courts - Lawsuits Under $10,000

The Justice Courts in Arizona have exclusive jurisdiction, or authority, to hear all civil actions when the amount involved is $10,000 or less.  This amount does not include interest, costs, and awarded attorney fees when authorized by law.
The filing of a complaint commences a civil action. Most civil litigation is conducted through attorneys, but there are some individuals who choose to represent themselves.  

If you elect to represent yourself, you have the responsibility to yourself and to the Court to acquire sufficient knowledge to complete the forms properly and to follow your action through to the conclusion. The court provides the necessary forms with detailed information and instructions.
