Self-Service Centers

In 2006, Administrative Order No. 2006-40 established the Legal Advice – Legal Information Guidelines Task Force to develop information guidelines to address the growing number of self-represented litigants in the court. The purpose of the guidelines and signage is to provide court customers appropriate and meaningful assistance and to help define the differences between legal information and legal advice. The guidelines were updated in 2013 and include the Code of Conduct for Judicial Employees Section 1-303 and a glossary of common legal terms.

The Superior Court and some Limited Jurisdiction Courts have Self-Service Centers designed to provide information and forms for persons representing themselves in court. Court staff at the Self-Service Centers can provide legal information, but not legal advice. These materials may also help you determine whether your question is best suited for Self-Service Center staff or an attorney.

The AZTurboCourt.gov  website includes links to the Arizona Judicial Branch’s online services, known as eServices.

Form Assistance
If you have trouble completing the forms located here, you should contact an attorney. Even if you are representing yourself, it is suggested that you have an attorney review your forms.


Lawyers on Call Lawyers on Call is a public service program sponsored by the State Bar of Arizona and Phoenix’s Channel 12 KPNX TV. On the first Tuesday of the month, members of the public can have their legal questions answered by volunteer lawyers.
AzLawHelp.org has information about civil legal issues, organizations that provide free legal help to low income clients, and other resources for people who can’t afford an attorney.


Self-Service Forms

Minor Abortion Without Parental Consent
Doctors cannot perform abortions for girls under the age of 18 without permission from their parent, guardian or a superior court judge

(A.R.S. § 36-2152 enacted in 2001, prohibits any physician from performing an abortion on an unemancipated minor without the written consent of one of the minor's parents or her guardian or conservator, or unless a judge of the superior court authorizes the physician to perform the abortion pursuant to prescribed procedures.)

If you are trying to obtain an abortion without parental consent, these self-service forms may be used to request permission from the superior court. Once you have filled these forms out, you must file them in person or via U.S. mail to the superior court in your county.
