ARFLP Rule 3
ARFLP Rule 43
ARFLP Rule 95
Forms 4 & 5
Summary: An amendment to Rule 43(D)(2) expands the list of materials that are not filed with the court (except when relevant as attachments or exhibits to other filings) to include documents exchanged under Family Law Rules 49 [disclosure], 50 [complex case disclosure], and 91(P) [post-decree disclosure], and related notices.
In Rules 3 and 95, and Forms 4 and 5, an amendment changes references to the DES Division of Child Support “Enforcement” to the DES Division of Child Support “Services.”
Impact: Forms 4 and 5 need updating to conform to the change in the name of this government agency.
The amendment makes a change within the comment to Rule 13, but not to the body of Rule 13. The comment contains a quote from A.R.S. §25-407[now section “E” of the statute], and in the quote, the term “custody” is deleted and replaced by “legal decision-making.”
Note: This rule became effective on September 13, 2013, on an expedited basis, with a comment period to October 25, 2013. On November 14, 2013, the Court permanently adopted the amendments.
