The Kingman Municipal Court is located in a building constructed in 1896 and formerly known as The Little Red School House where grades 1st - 8th attended school until 1928. After the students moved to a new location, the building served many groups: The Catholic Missionaries and the Christian Science Church; The Elks Lodge; and it housed the Ration Board during WWII to name a few. At the end of the war, the Chamber of Commerce moved in along with a Public Library.
In 1974, the building was placed on the Register of Historic Buildings and with some internal remodeling, the Public Library became the sole occupant. As the library grew, there became a need for a new building and they moved out. By this time, the City of Kingman owned the building and, in 1992, decided to renovate the building and it has been home to the Municipal Court ever since.
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.
