Electronic Pro Se (E-Pro Se) Program

E-Pro Se is a user-friendly web application available on the District of Arizona website (www.azd.uscourts.gov) and on kiosks in the Phoenix and Tucson Clerk's Office locations.  This program is not intended to be a substitute for an attorney or to provide legal advice.

E-Pro Se assists a pro se party in preparing the complaint required to commence a civil lawsuit. The program gathers information through a series of questions and the data entered will be converted into a complaint in Microsoft Word format.  Users will have an opportunity to make changes before printing and filing documents with the Clerk of Court.

The program will provide the option to save* the document or open it in a word processor for further review.

*Please note that when creating documents on the public terminal in the courthouse users will be unable to save them. All documents must be completed and printed prior to exiting the program. Users should arrive at the courthouse with information organized and ready to enter to the program.  This will allow sufficient time to complete the process.  Customer Service hours are 8:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m, Monday through Friday, excluding holidays.

If the information in the complaint is correct, print the document, sign it and deliver or mail it to the Clerk of Court's office for the District of Arizona to be filed.

An original complaint and a copy for the judge must be provided.  If the filer wishes to receive a file stamped copy, an additional copy must be provided.  When printing documents from the public terminal in the Clerk's office, the first copy is free of charge and additional printed copies will require a fee of $.10 per page. Additional copies made by the clerk will be $.50 per page.
