Protective Order Forms

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 perferred 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.

If you do not understand something, have trouble filling out any of the forms, or are not sure these forms and instructions apply to your situation, see an attorney for help. Consult a state Law Library or the Legal Aid Resources page for information on free or reduced cost legal aid for more information.
Not all forms may be accepted in all Arizona courts – you should contact the clerk of the court in which you will be filing to confirm the use of a particular form, determine whether any additional forms are required and verify the filing fees.
