    If approved, this amendment would conform Rules 34(c) and 76(b) of the Arizona Rules of Family Law Procedure (ARFLP) with the consultation exception for self-represented litigants in Rule 9(c) and 17, ARFLP.

    Filed: December 23, 2021

    Would amend Rules 34(b) and 76(b) of the Arizona Rules of Family Law Procedure to modify the current rules’ provisions governing the parties’ obligation to consult with one another in connection with certain pretrial proceedings

    This is a supplemental filing in response to further discussion regarding the goals for this rule change. The focus is on maximizing consultation before certain submissions to the court are made without compromising the protection of those who allege to have been victimized by domestic violence.
