AZPOINT, the Arizona Protective Order Initiation and Notification Tool, has been designed to help you fill out a petition for an Order of Protection. Through an interview in AZPOINT, you can quickly and accurately fill out the forms that are needed to request an Order of Protection at an Arizona court. An Order of Protection is a court order that is issued to stop a person from committing domestic violence or from contacting other people protected by the order. The portal will also help you figure out whether you (the plaintiff) and the person from whom you are seeking protection (the defendant) have a qualifying relationship for an Order of Protection. Your information will be saved in AZPOINT for up to 90 days. At any time during this 90-day period, you may take the next step of filing your petition at 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. You are encouraged to speak to a victim advocate before you file your petition. An advocate can help you make a safety plan and give you more information about how an Order of Protection works and how it will be served on the defendant.

News Release: Governor Ducey Appoints Krista Carman To The Yavapai County Superior Court

PHOENIX — Governor Doug Ducey today announced the appointment of Krista Carman to the Yavapai County Superior Court.  The vacancy on the Yavapai County Superior Court was created by the retirement of Judge Patricia Trebesch. Under the Arizona Constitution, judges of the Superior Court in counties with a population of less than 250,000 persons are elected by the voters.  When a judge retires or resigns prior to a general election, the vacancy created by the retirement or resignation is filled by gubernatorial appointment until the next general election.

Krista is an experienced trial attorney who currently practices in the diverse areas of personal injury, employment, insurance coverage, probate, commercial litigation, medical malpractice and victim’s rights.  She also serves as an appointed arbitrator for the Yavapai County Superior Court and volunteer fee arbitrator for the State Bar of Arizona. Before starting her own law firm, Krista was a partner with Warnock, MacKinlay & Carman.

Krista is the Vice President of the Arizona Association for Justice/Arizona Trial Lawyers Association.  She has served on the State Bar of Arizona Civil Jury Instructions Committee and Supreme Court Committee on Civil Justice Reform.  Governor Jan Brewer appointed her to the Commission on Appellate Court Appointments where she served from 2015 to 2018. She has received awards from the Arizona Women Lawyer’s Association, Yavapai County Bar Association and Prescott Area Young Professionals.

With a passion for children, Krista is very active in the Yavapai County community.  She serves as President of the Prescott Unified School District Education Foundation.  She is on the board of directors for the Community Pregnancy Center of Prescott. Additionally, she is the regional co-coordinator for the high school mock trial competition.

“Krista’s depth and breadth of practice, as well as her commitment to serving the community, make her well-equipped to serve the Yavapai County community,” said Governor Ducey. “I am pleased to appoint Krista to the Yavapai County Superior Court.”

Krista graduated from Northern Arizona University with degrees in Elementary Education and Special Education.  She then graduated from Arizona State University College of Law.
