The Lake Havasu City Municipal Court operates as the independent judicial branch of government established by the constitution of the State of Arizona under the direct supervision of the Arizona Supreme Court for Lake Havasu City.

The Lake Havasu City Municipal Court handles cases that range from minor traffic violations to class one misdemeanors. The Court handles Criminal misdemeanors, Criminal Traffic/DUI, Civil Traffic, Civil Offense, Petty Offenses, Local Ordinances, and water violations. Additional Court provided services are search warrants, record searches, weddings, notary, a law library, protection orders, and Problem-Solving Courts.

The Lake Havasu City Problem-Solving Courts consist of Youth Court and Veterans Treatment Court. The Youth and Veterans Treatment Courts have made significant and measurable differences in their participants’ lives by assisting with treatment and peer support programs that promote sobriety, recovery, and stability. The Youth and Veterans Treatment Court has been proven to reduce recidivism among its participants, which has benefited the Lake Havasu City community and the criminal justice system.


As the judicial branch of government, our mission is to administer fair and impartial justice. The Municipal Court is committed to providing efficient, accurate, and accessible services.
