Small Claims

In the justice court you may file a small claims lawsuit claiming an amount UP TO AND INCLUDING $3,500.00. You may also ask for reimbursement of court costs and/or attorney fees.

If you wish to file a lawsuit for an amount over $3,500.00 up to and including $10,000.00, you may file a civil lawsuit in the justice court. If you wish to sue for an amount greater than $10,000.00 then you must file your lawsuit in the Superior Court.

Below are instructions for filing a small claims complaint and counterclaim. If you need additional information beyond what is contained in this website, you may use the Law Library at the Pinal County Superior Court in Florence, Arizona. Court clerks cannot give legal advice. If you want legal advice, you must contact an attorney.

Read the Small Claims Packet in the “How-To” section of the website BEFORE filling out your form. Determine the proper venue for filing your claim. Select the name of the court by clicking the drop down arrow at the top of the form.

Fill in all the fields that apply to you as the plaintiff or defendant. You will not be able to type information into those parts of the form reserved for court staff.

Print out at least three completed copies of the form and bring them to the court with your fee (copy for you and a copy for each defendant listed).

You also may bring ONE completed form and have the court make four copies for you (you will be charged a $.50 per page copy fee if you choose this method).

If you are a defendant filing a counterclaim:
The instructions for filling out and filing a counterclaim are the same as those for filing an initial Small Claims complaint. When filing the counterclaim you must submit your answer to the plaintiff’s complaint at the same time you submit your counterclaim filing.

NOTE: You can save completed forms to your computer’s hard drive. If you want to clear the entire form to start over, click on the reset tab at the bottom of the page.
