In Arizona, there are limited jurisdiction courts, a general jurisdiction trial court, and appellate courts. The appellate courts consist of the Court of Appeals and the Arizona Supreme Court.
Limited jurisdiction courts are not required to keep permanent records of court proceedings. These include Municipal Courts, also known as city courts or magistrate courts. Municipal Courts have criminal jurisdiction over misdemeanors, petty offenses, traffic cases, and ordinance violations that occur within the city or town limits. They can issue protective orders and search warrants. Justice of the Peace Courts also have limited jurisdiction. Justice courts operate within precincts that may encompass a city or town and also outlying communities. Justice of the Peace Courts oversee traffic cases, civil cases under $10,000, domestic violence cases, and misdemeanors. They share jurisdiction with Superior Courts in certain landlord/tenant cases.
The Superior Court is the general jurisdiction trial court of Arizona. It is a single entity with court locations in each county. The Superior Court hears the widest variety of case types, and keeps permanent records. It presides over equity, misdemeanor, felony, evictions, probate (wills, estates), divorces, and other cases. The Superior Court also acts as an appellate court for justice and municipal courts. Separate divisions of the Superior Court include Juvenile Court and Tax Court.
