AZTurboCourt guides filers through a series of questions that will help them create the forms needed to file into the following two case types: Limited Jurisdiction Civil and Small Claims. These forms must be printed and either mailed or hand-delivered to the court in which the filer intends to file the case. AZTurboCourt charges an application fee for this service. Additional filing fees may be charged by the court at the time of filing, which may be deferred or waived by submitting an application to the court.
Filers can also download forms for each of these case types, at no cost.

A Civil action filed in a limited jurisdiction court is a claim against another party for damages of an amount up to $10,000.00. These lawsuits are designed to resolve civil disputes before a Justice of the Peace. Parties in a Civil lawsuit may be represented by attorneys and appeal their case to a higher court.
Civil lawsuits must be filed in the jurisdiction in which the damage occurred or in which the defendant lives or does business.

A Small Claims lawsuit is a claim against another party for damages of an amount less than $3,500.00. These lawsuits are designed to resolve civil disputes in front of a small claims hearing officer or a Justice of the Peace. Parties in a Small Claims action may be represented by an attorney only if both parties agree to the use of attorneys. Filers of Small Claims actions do not have the right to appeal or the right to a jury trial.
The plaintiff must file a complaint in the justice court precinct (the “venue”) where the defendant resides or as permitted by ARS § 22-202.
