TO MODIFY (CHANGE) PARENTING TIME OR PARENTING TIME AND CHILD SUPPORT WHEN THE PARTIES ARE NOT FILING AN AGREEMENT JOINTLY REQUESTING THE CHANGE
  • You want to change parenting time or parenting time and child support for any reason including that the other party is not using his or her parenting time, AND,
  • You do not wish to or cannot submit an AGREEMENT to this change signed by you and the other party. AND,
  • The court order that you want to change is a Maricopa County order, AND,
  • It is in the child(ren)'s best interest to make a change to that order, AND,
  • You are aware of the following two provisions of Arizona law:
    1. The court shall not restrict a parent's parenting time rights unless it finds that the parenting time would endanger seriously the child's physical, mental, moral or emotional health. A.R.S. 25-411 (C)
    2. The court shall assess attorney fees and costs against a party seeking modification if the court finds that the modification action is vexatious and constitutes harassment. A.R.S. 25-411 (F)
  • YOU MAY NOT USE THESE FORMS TO CHANGE CUSTODY.* (now called "Legal Decision Making" in Arizona).
  • *If you want to change from joint to sole or sole to joint legal decision making (custody), refer to the checklist in the Self-Service Center's "Petition" or "Agreement" "to Modify Legal Decision Making (Custody), Support, and Parenting Time" packets to determine if either fits your situation.
WARNING: If the order you want to change is not from this county, ask a lawyer about the requirements to file your Petition (Request) with this Court.
