Hello and welcome again. Thank you for your follow up question.
To begin with, it does not matter that you now live in Arizona. Secondly, In most cases, you are free to represent yourself in Court if you choose, and in some states, you are required to do so in small claims court. This is called ‘pro se’ or ‘pro per,’ which are Latin terms meaning ‘for himself’ or ‘on one’s own behalf.’ Check with your local clerk’s office to make sure that your state does not require you to have an attorney for your specific case.
