Vol. 12, No. 11 November 2016
Website Outages in November
Maricopa County will be doing planned system maintenance that will affect
all websites ending in “.maricopa.gov.” These websites will be unavailable from
8:30 p.m. until Midnight on Sunday, November 6 and Sunday, November 13.
Commonly-used websites that will not be available include minute entries, the
docket online, the Electronic Court Record Online, and the Clerk’s eFiling Online
During the outages, users will not be able to view documents through AZTurboCourt.
Filings can still be submitted through AZTurboCourt during the maintenance
windows and documents will be processed when maintenance is complete. The date
and time of filing through AZTurboCourt will be preserved and will not be
affected by the maintenance.
Millions of Points of Service
The Clerk’s Office received more than 714,000 eFilings during the fiscal
year ending June 30, 2016. Although eFilings have increased significantly over
the years, they remain only a portion of nearly 15,000 documents the office
processes on an average day. These filings add up to millions of documents each
year that Clerk staff handle, making sure they end up in the right case at the
right time, accessible to the right people.
In addition to filing, issuing marriage licenses, and processing passport
applications, the Clerk’s Office processes millions of dollars of victim
restitution. In its latest fiscal year, the Clerk’s Office put $9.2 million of
restitution into the hands of victims—over half a million dollars more than
last fiscal year. This information and more will appear in the Clerk’s 2015-2016
Annual Report, available later this month under “Announcements” on the Clerk’s
website at www.clerkofcourt.maricopa.gov.
Office Closure Reminders
The Clerk’s Office will be closed on Friday, November 11 for Veterans’
Day and on Thursday and Friday, November 24 and 25 for Thanksgiving. Several
years ago the Superior Court in Maricopa County opted to stay open on Columbus
Day in exchange for closing on the Friday after Thanksgiving. In non-juvenile
case types, customers may submit documents for filing on nights, weekends, and
holidays by eFiling in appropriate cases and by using the Clerk’s external
filing depository boxes located around the Valley. Filing depository box
locations are listed online at http://www.clerkofcourt.maricopa.gov/alternative_filing.asp.
