    This is a proposal to amend Rule 84(b) of the Arizona Rules of Family Law Procedure (ARFLP). In its present form, the rule allows a party to file a motion for clarification at any time. It is proposed that there be a limitation on the time frame within which to seek clarification of an order. NOTE: This Petition is supported by the Family Court Improvement Committee per their vote at the November 2, 2022, meeting.

    Filed: November 3, 2022

    Would amend Rule 84(b) of the Rules of Family Law Procedure to provide that absent good cause or unless an exception applies, a motion to clarify a ruling must be filed no later than six months after the ruling’s entry.
