Navajo County Superior Courts

Presiding Judge Michala M. Ruechel, welcomes you to the Navajo County Superior Court’s website. This website provides information on the Superior Court, Clerk of the Court, Adult and Juvenile Probation, and information on other court programs such as CASA and Pre-Trial Services. The Navajo County Superior Court currently has four elected Superior Court Judges, and one part-time Family Commissioner.

There are four Superior Court Divisions located at the Navajo County Complex in Holbrook, Arizona. In an effort to provide ease of access and efficiency to court proceedings, the Superior Court has also expanded some services to the Southern portion of Navajo County by establishing a Superior Court in Show Low.

The Superior Court handles matters including civil, criminal, mental health, probate, family court matters which include divorce, paternity, child support and parenting time, juvenile matters which include delinquency, dependency, adoption and severance cases, and limited jurisdiction court appeals.

The mission of the Judicial Branch in Navajo County is to provide our constituents with a judicial forum for the just and timely resolution of disputes. Ease of access for users to court-related information and processes is an inherent obligation. Our responsibility as court system personnel is to fulfill the public’s right to fair and efficient justice with dignity, professionalism and courtesy. We are dedicated to serving all whom use our facilities in a professional and courteous manner, while providing the best service possible.
