    Susan Pickard, FCIC Staff on behalf of:
    [email protected]/602.452.3252

    Judge Paul McMurdie, Chair
    Family Court Improvement Committee
    1501 W. Washington St., Ste. 410
    Phoenix, AZ 85007

    The Family Court Improvement Committee petitions this Court to add Rule 30, Right to timely review, to the Arizona Rules of Family Law Procedure as outlined in Appendix A. This Petition addresses public complaints about delays by family court judges on stipulated or uncontested actions. Upon investigation, the Committee found several areas where the superior court failed to rule promptly.

    Filed: November 28, 2022

    Would adopt a new Rule 30 to the Rules of Family Law Procedure to impose deadlines for judges to enter certain types of rulings or orders.

    Comments must be submitted no later than Monday, May 1, 2023.
    Any reply by a petitioner must be submitted no later than Thursday, June 1, 2023.
