How We Can Help You

Welcome to the Arizona Courts

We will be happy to help you if we can. As we must be fair to everyone, we can help you only in certain ways. This is a list of some things court personnel can and cannot do for you.

We Can

  • Explain and answer general questions about how the court works
  • Give you general information about court rules, procedures, and practices
  • Give you information from your case file that is not restricted
  • Provide court schedules and information on how to get a case scheduled
  • Provide you a number for lawyer referral services, legal aid programs, and other services where you can get legal information
  • Provide you with court forms and instructions that are available
  • Usually answer questions about court deadlines

We Cannot

  • Alter court documents
  • Conduct legal research for you
  • Give you an opinion about what will happen if you bring your case to court
  • Talk to the judge for you or let you talk to the judge outside of court
  • Tell you what to say in court
  • Tell you whether you should bring your case to court
  • Tell you what words to use in your court papers or whether they are correct


Our ability to assist you will depend on the time and resources available as well as the scope of our responsibilities, knowledge, and experience. Use the courts information page to find contact information.
