AZPOINT, the Arizona Protective Order Initiation and Notification Tool, has been designed to help you fill out a petition for an Order of Protection, Injunction Against Harassment, or an Injunction Against Workplace Harassment. Through a guided interview in AZPOINT, you can quickly fill out the forms that are needed to request an Order of Protection from an Arizona court. There is no fee to use AZPOINT.

Filing Your Petition At Court

After you complete your petition in the AZPOINT system, you have 90 days to appear at a courthouse and officially file the petition. Until you file your petition at the court, you will be able to update your information if necessary. You can file your petition with any municipal court, justice court, or superior court location. If you currently have a family court case with the other person, you will have to file with the superior court that is handling your family court case. Find My Court

Preferred Method of Filing

The AZPOINT portal is the preferred method of filing a Protective Order at an Arizona court. While the Protective Order Petition may be completed on paper, you may be asked to recopy your information onto a multipart form or one that is specific to the courthouse where you file. In some courts, you may be asked to complete the petition through an interactive computer program.
