What is Turbo Court?

The AZTurboCourt website includes links to the Arizona Judicial Branch’s online services, known as eServices.  One of the featured online services is electronic filing, commonly referred to as eFiling. The eFiling service guides filers through the process of preparing case submissions by asking a series of questions in an interview-like fashion. After completing the questions-and-answers process, the system will allow filers to review their answers and make corrections as needed. The final answers will be incorporated within court-approved forms that can be printed and submitted over-the-counter or sent electronically to the receiving court.

What are the benefits of AZTurboCourt?

Some of the initial benefits of this application are:
1)    one registration process that will allow users to file in any state level court in Arizona (as the application becomes available in each of the 15 counties);
2)    the ability to pay filing fees and user fees on-line thereby eliminating the need to send a runner to the court to pay filing fees;
3)    the ability to view court case documents within the AZTurboCourt application once a filing has been made using the application;
4)    the ability to copy previous filing information to create a new filing in the same case, thus reducing data entry; and
5)    the ability for designated users to view all filings submitted by a firm. Future functionality will allow users to initiate cases through AZTurboCourt and achieve electronic service of process. The AZTurboCourt application is intended to replace the Maricopa Clerk of Court e-filing application for all case types and will eventually be available statewide in all courts (Superior, Justice, and Municipal) for all case types. To this end, we have worked to ensure that law firms are provided every opportunity to attend training and become proficient in the use of AZTurboCourt.

What are the restrictions of using AZTurboCourt?

In limited jurisdiction cases, the only piece of the application that is available (currently in Cochise, Coconino, Gila, La Paz, Maricopa, Mohave, Pima, Pinal, Santa Cruz and Yuma counties) for use by litigants is “print forms” which is very similar to a TurboTax application, e.g., a litigant registers to use the system, clicks on the case type that they would like to file, answers a series of questions and based on the responses, the system generates the forms needed to file or respond to the case type selected. The user then prints the forms and delivers them to the courts with the appropriate filing fees.

Family Law Print Forms are now available in Coconino County Superior Court for litigants filing dissolution (petition and response), legal separation (petition and response), parenting plan and Rule 82.
