  • General Information Regarding Civil Lawsuits

    The justice courts in Arizona have exclusive jurisdiction or the authority to hear all civil actions when the amount involved, exclusive of interest, costs and awarded attorney fees when authorized by law, is $10,000.00 or less.

    Civil lawsuits in Arizona are governed by the Justice Court Rules of Civil Procedure.  In a regular civil proceeding either party may be represented by an attorney. If you elect to represent yourself you have a responsibility to yourself and to the court to acquire sufficient knowledge of the court process and procedures, to complete the forms properly and to follow your action through to conclusion.

    The Pima County Superior Court website provides a flowchart of the civil case process.  The Green Valley Justice Court schedules all civil cases for mediation in an attempt to resolve the matter in lieu of trial.  The Court’s mediators are highly trained in mediation techniques and have been effective in resolving cases.
