Welcome to AZPOINT, the Arizona Protective Order Initiation and Notification Tool. Through an interview in this portal, you can quickly and accurately fill out the forms that are needed to request an Order of Protection at an Arizona court.
Protective orders are designed to prohibit a specific person from coming near your home, work site, school, or other locations as listed on the order. Protective orders cannot guarantee your safety, but they can provide you with legal recourse if the person violates the order. The City Court does not charge a filing fee for any protective order.
Protective orders cannot resolve landlord/tenant disputes and cannot change child custody or visitation orders.
If you are or will be involved in a legal action related to divorce, separation, paternity, child support, custody, or visitation, you must file your petition for a protective order with the Superior Court.
There are two types of protective orders:
Order of Protection
An Order of Protection is issued against a specific person who has committed an act of domestic violence against you or who may commit an act of domestic violence against you.
You may qualify for an Order of Protection if you and the defendant are married or were married in the past, if you live together or lived together in the past, if you have a child in common, if one of you is pregnant by the other, or if one of you is a parent, stepparent, grandparent, sibling, or in-law of the other.
Injunction Against Harassment
An Injunction Against Harassment is issued against a specific person who has committed a series of acts of harassment against you personally.
You should request an Injunction Against Harassment if you do not have a relationship with the defendant that meets the requirements of an Order of Protection.
A protective order becomes valid when it has been served, and it expires one year after the date of service. If the order has not been served after one year, it automatically expires.
The defendant has the right to contest the protective order at any time before it expires. If the defendant requests dismissal or modification of the protective order, the Court will set a hearing within 10 days. You will receive notice of the hearing. If you fail to appear at the hearing, the protective order may be dismissed.

Court staff may be able to give you information about your case, but they are not lawyers and cannot give you legal advice. By law it is illegal for them to advise you about how to handle a case. Court staff does not have authority to reschedule a court appearance or excuse a failure to appear. If you need advice, you must contact an attorney.
Can I write a letter to a judge?newsite52017-01-31T22:06:24-07:00
Yes, but you must file any written communication with the clerk, and you must provide copies to the prosecutor. Written communication must include your name and case number. You must clearly state what you want the court to do and why it should be done. If your motion is properly filed, the prosecutor will be allowed ten days to file a response, and the court will rule within a reasonable time after that.
Can I talk to a judge about my case?newsite52017-01-31T22:05:01-07:00
No. Judges are not allowed to talk directly with litigants, witnesses, friends, or family members about a pending case or a situation that might result in litigation. Ethical rules require judges to make sure that both parties are present, with their lawyers, before discussing a case.
What can I do if I have a warrant for my arrest?newsite52017-01-31T22:04:14-07:00
Any motion to quash a warrant must be filed in writing. Alternatively, you may surrender yourself to the court and ask to be scheduled for an initial appearance. Please note that you may be required to post a bond. Court employees have no authority to quash a warrant for failure to appear.
What can I do if there is a default judgment against me in a civil traffic case?newsite52017-01-31T22:03:19-07:00
If a default judgment is entered against you, your license will be suspended and you will be required to pay a civil penalty in order to reinstate your license. Any request to set aside a default judgment must be filed in writing and must show good cause.
What can I do if I cannot make it on time for a court appearance?newsite52017-01-31T22:02:34-07:00
If you need to reschedule a court appearance, you must file a motion to reschedule at least ten business days before the scheduled court date. Please note that if you motion is not granted, you will be required to appear as scheduled. If you file a motion to reschedule later than ten days before your scheduled date, you might risk a warrant (in criminal cases) or a default (on civil charges) if you fail to appear. Please note that court employees have no authority to reschedule a court date.
What happens if I fail to appear on my court date?newsite52017-01-31T22:01:24-07:00
If you have been charged with a civil traffic violation, a default judgment will be entered against you and your license will be suspended. If your case involves criminal charges, a warrant will be issued for your arrest. Please note that court employees have no authority to excuse a failure to appear.
When is my next court date?newsite52017-01-31T22:00:33-07:00
Keeping track of your court dates is up to you. However, if you have forgotten your court date, court staff may be able to provide that information if you know your case number. If you do not remember your case number, court staff might be able to help you find it. However, in some cases it may be difficult to find your case, such as if there is an error in the spelling of your name. It is always best to keep your case number handy.
Do I have to report a change of address?newsite52017-01-31T21:59:47-07:00
Yes. If you have any pending cases with the Casa Grande City Court, it is your responsibility to keep your address current. If you fail to provide the Court with the appropriate contact information, you may not receive notification regarding your case. This could result in a warrant being issued for your arrest, or a default judgment being entered against you.
