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

September 2, 2020

PHOENIX — Governor Doug Ducey today announced the appointment of Michael McGill to the Yavapai County Superior Court. The vacancy on the Yavapai County Superior Court was created by the retirement of Judge David Mackey. 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.

Michael McGill is an experienced prosecutor who has been serving the people of Yavapai County since 2011. As a Supervising Deputy County Attorney, Michael manages a team of prosecutors assigned to the Yavapai County Justice Courts. Michael also was part of the team responsible for establishing the Yavapai County Limited Jurisdiction Veteran’s Court to address the unique needs of Arizona’s veteran community. Before joining the Yavapai County Attorney’s Office, Michael McGill was a prosecutor on the General Narcotics Team task force in Mohave County and a prosecutor for the Arizona Automobile Theft Authority. 

Michael has been recognized on many occasions for his outstanding work as a prosecutor. He was presented with the Outstanding Felony Prosecutor Award by the Yavapai County Attorney’s Office in 2018, recognized as the Felony Prosecutor of the Year by the Governor’s Office of Highway Safety in 2017, and given the Excellence in Victim Advocacy Award by the Yavapai County Attorney’s Office in 2016. Michael is also an active member of several professional organizations, including the National District Attorneys Association and Yavapai County Bar Association. 

With a passion for helping Arizona’s youth, Michael is very active in his community. He has frequently volunteered to serve as a coach for the Prescott Valley Little League, Yavapai Soccer Club, and Prescott YMCA. He has also volunteered for the Coyote Springs Elementary School in Prescott Valley. 

“Michael’s dedication to serving his community and outstanding work as a Deputy Yavapai County Attorney make him an exceptional candidate to serve on the bench,” said Governor Ducey. “I am delighted to appoint Michael McGill to the Yavapai County Superior Court.” 

Michael graduated with a Juris Doctorate degree from Western New England College School of Law in 2005 and Bachelor of Science in Criminal Justice from Western New England College in 2002.
