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.

SUPERIOR COURT IN YAVAPAI COUNTY

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

March 16, 2020

COVID-19

We are working closely with State and County Officials to monitor the evolving information regarding COVID-19. Although there are currently no confirmed cases in Yavapai County, the Superior Court in Yavapai County is endeavoring to respond reasonably to the concerns raised in the community regarding COVID-19 (Coronavirus) and keep our Courts open. Based upon the information provided by the CDC and recommendations by the Yavapai County Community Health Services Department, we are making efforts to implement proactive precautionary measures to reduce social interactions. While the Courts remain open to the public, we urge those who do not have business at the courthouse to minimize their presence at our court facilities.

If you need to file paperwork at the courthouse, we encourage you to utilize the exterior depository boxes (available at all three Superior Court locations) or send documents for filing along with any required filing fee by means of U.S. mail. You may also make court-related payments either online at http://courts.yavapai.us/, or in-person at any PayNearMe kiosk, the locations of which can be found at https://home.paynearme.com/merchant-locations/. Our Judges have been asked to waive on a case by case basis slight delays in filing due to mailing.

If you have hearings scheduled in our Courts, the Superior Court bench is open to liberally utilizing telephonic and video-conference appearances when requested and as permissible by court rules. We would ask members of the community who are symptomatic or feeling ill to stay home. If you are ill and have an upcoming court proceeding, we encourage you to contact the assigned Court to request to appear telephonically or have your matter continued. If you appear for a court proceeding

and are exhibiting symptoms, the judge may ask you to leave.

For anyone who is not a party in a case but wishes to attend court in support of a friend or family member, we are politely asking that you reconsider unless your attendance is essential. If you are symptomatic you may be asked to leave.

At this time, any individual who has been summonsed for jury duty and is ill or symptomatic or has family members who are ill or symptomatic may have their jury duty postponed to avoid the risk of exposure to illness. We ask that you contact the Jury Office at 928-777-3022 (Prescott) or 928-554-8938 (Verde) to request your jury service be rescheduled. We are working with our Judges to follow the latest recommendation of the CDC that suggests we not gather in groups of more than 50 people, so your summons time may change to accommodate that recommendation. Please call the number on your jury summons before heading to the Court as your time to report may change. We are hopeful that citizens who are healthy and able to serve as a juror will continue to uphold their responsibility to report for jury duty.

To assist in the process of containing the spread of COVID-19, court employees are being urged to maintain a clean work environment and following healthy practices as recommended by health officials.

We will continue to monitor developments with COVID-19 and implement contingency plans as deemed appropriate. For more information regarding COVID-19, please visit www.azhealth.gov/COVID19. You may also visit the Yavapai County Health Services website at www.yavapai.us/chs or Facebook page for updates regarding other health related matters.
