    Family Court Improvement Committee
    Judge Paul McMurdie, Chair
    c/o Susan Pickard, Staff
    1501 W. Washington St., Ste. 410
    Phoenix, Arizona 85007

    The court referred Rule Change Petition R-19-0047 to the Family Court Improvement Committee (FCIC) for input. Briefly, the court indicated that it was concerned with the proposed rule change because A.R.S. § 12-1809 grants all courts, including non-record courts, the authority to determine harassment injunctions. While recognizing the problem when a harassment injunction issued from a non-record court interferes with a superior court’s parenting order, the court sought a process solution to ensure the child’s safety while reconciling the family court orders regarding parenting time and legal decision making. The FCIC, in collaboration with representatives from the Committee on Limited Jurisdiction Courts (LJC), discussed the problem and unanimously endorsed this substitute proposal.

    Would amend Rule 35 of the Ariz. R. Prot. Order P. and Rules 91.6 and 91.7 of the Ariz. R. Fam. L. P. to adopt provisions governing harassment injunctions.
