Mia's early life is never mentioned in the series, but it is hinted that she had a husband named Reynolds. Matilda is Reynolds's and Mia's daughter. Mia used to be an author, her most famous works being the Enchanted Clubhouse series. She then found out that writing is really stupid, so she went back to school and got a Monkey's Degree in Prejudice. In 1308, she started her own reality/comedy court show, Judge Mia. Mia got engaged to her second husband, Fransisco, in Judge Mia's Valentine's Day and they got married in The Justice Bride.
Judge Mia's personality is presented as being rude, selfish, and full of herself. She enjoys pointing out the mistakes that other people have made, and making an image of herself as being perfect. She thinks she is superior to everyone.
Though being stuck up and selfish at most times, she does have a good side; for instance, she loves Maggie and Marley very much, she obviously has a soft spot for Fransisco and Reynolds, and although she is ignorant most of the time, she can comprehend when something is wrong and try to fix it.
Mia visited a young spikieitis victim out of the kindness of her heart at the Emergency Medical Center for Spikieitis Reaserch and Treatment. The story was put in a newspaper article, saying:
- "It was Gruel Furry's lifelong dream to meet Judge Mia, but when he was diagnosed with life-threatening spikieitis, it looked like he never would. Yesterday, he was surprised with Judge Mia herself!"
Judge Mia has the appearance of a big, husky red-and-white sockmonkey. She has a unibrow, fish eyes, a snout, multiple uniwrinks, a double chin, and she is bald.
Mia usually never wears clothes, except when she wore some kind of variation of a dress for her wedding in The Justice Bride.

- —Matilda going off at Mia for coming home late in So Sue Me!
Earlier in the show, Matilda was mad at Mia for choosing family over business. Matilda got mad at Mia when she didn't come to the twins' Thanksgiving pageant.
Episodes later, in A Very Mia Christmas, Matilda acting slightly kinder to Mia (i.e. Feeling sorry for Mia when Fransisco didn't propose to her), but still acted sourly after the holidays.In So Sue Me!, Matilda was mad at Mia for showing up late for the family dinner, and had a tantrum when Mia told her about Sue.
In Judge Mia's Valentine's Day, when Fransisco proposed to Mia, Matilda was really mad at Mia for agreeing to be married, and stayed mad at Mia until the couple's divorce in Crappy Anniversary. Before their divorce, in The Justice Bride, Matilda objected at the couple's wedding, but Murphy told her to "give it a rest".
In Judge Mia Forever, all of Matilda's anger at Mia that had been building up was let loose. After being late for the twins' graduation and make rude noises and such, Matilda banished Mia from the family.

Not much is known about Mia and Reynold's relationship, because he died before the show started. It is assumed they got along well, because they lived together long enough for Reynolds to die, and had children (Matilda).
Nut is usually the calmer one of the courthouse, and Mia gets mad at him often. She is demanding of him, and makes him act like her slave. The biggest example of Mia and Nut's relationship going sour, is in Grouch vs. Mama Java, when Nut got upset because he thought Mia was treating him wrong, taking him for granted, and making him work too much. Nut went on strike for the majority of the episode, until Mia said "sorry" and everything was fine.
Buck is Mia's annoying neighbor. A running gag in the show is that Buck appears in almost every episode and portrays an excessive amount of characters, but that stopped after Season 2. Buck means well, but often gets himself into trouble. In Judge Buck, Buck replaced Mia as a judge for a day. It is unknown how she feels about this, sense she was absent for most of the episode.
Mia does not consider Turdsley as her friend, though he does. She thinks Turdsley is dumb (which is true) and annoying. She treats him like an animal when she is not ignoring him.
Mia thinks Birdena is bossy, rude, ugly, and dumb. Mia often wise-cracks at Birdena, only to mess up and look stupid. She does not consider herself and Birdena friends, thought Birdena is highly considered as part of Mia's "Gang", because she is included in most of the gang's adventures throughout the show.
BrownfeatherMia and Brownfeather have a mixed relationship. Sometimes they act as friends and sometimes they annoy eachother. Although Mia did help Brownfeather get Constipatia when she needed it in Brownflesh, Brownfeather betrayed Mia when she told her followers to "smite" Mia, Birdena, and Buck.
Judge MayaJudge Maya is Mia's rival. It started with Judge Maya mocking Mia's show by copying it, then Mia sabotaged Maya's studio, and so the revenge continues. Maya as tried to ruin Mia's reputation by switching bodies, tricking her friends, kidnapping her family, and trying to out-do Mia's show.
SueSue is one of Mia's newest foes, from the Season 11 episode, So Sue Me!. Mia particularly despises Sue's grotesque hair-do and personality.
