AZPOINT Information

AZPOINT, the Arizona Protective Order Initiation and Notification Tool, is a new portal designed to help you fill out a petition for an Order of Protection, an Injunction Against Harassment, or an Injunction Against Workplace Harassment. Through a guided interview, you can quickly fill out the forms that are needed to request a protective order from an Arizona court. There is no fee to use AZPOINT. Go to https://azpoint.azcourts.gov/ to get started.
Filing Your Petition at Court

Your information will be saved in AZPOINT for 90 days. At any time during this period, you may take the next step of filing your petition with an Arizona court. Until you file your petition at a court, you will be able to return to AZPOINT to update your information if necessary. Click Find My Court for court information. You can file your petition with any city court, justice of the peace court, or superior court. But if you have a family court case with the other person, you must file with the superior court that is handling the family court case. When you’re ready to proceed, please call the court you selected for further instructions.
The AZPOINT portal is the courts' preferred method for you to complete the protective order forms. The forms provided below should only be used for their reference value. While you may be able to fill them out on paper, you may be asked to re-copy your information onto a multi-part form or a form that has the court's name and address on it. In some courts, you may be asked to complete the petition through an interactive computer program.
