Answer: Legal decision making should be established if it's not already.  In order to do this, one of the parents would need to file in court legal decision making, parenting time and child support.  To do this in Maricopa County, go to https://www.superiorcourt.maricopa.gov/SuperiorCourt/Self-ServiceCenter/Forms/FamilyCourt/index.asp.  The information on paperwork and filing fees can be found there.  If the child is located in another county outside of Maricopa County, go to: http://www.azcourts.gov/selfservicecenter/Self-Service-Forms for the forms and information of your county.
