Child Custody

questions & answers

Question: Is there a way to find out if I'm filling out my Petition For Modification Of Legal Decision-Making and Parenting Time Form 23 paperwork correctly. My Girlfriend is trying to change custody agreement due to her ex-husbands drug use and issues with the police. He only calls when he wants something from her and its not to see his daughter. He gets high and calls in the middle of the night but never speaks. What can we do to keep him away from her, he can not be trusted by anyone including the police.

Answer: Maricopa County does have the Family Lawyers Assistance Project at their Superior Courts.  They will look over your paperwork, but cannot advise you as to what to do only how to fill out the paperwork and if there is anything missing. This service is free. You may also qualify for reduced attorney fees if you meet the criteria for either the Modest Means Project or the Qualified Income Legal Team (Quilt)  Project (Pima County Only).  You can contact the Modest Means Project at 866-637-5341, they will screen you and offer a list of attorneys state wide for consultation.  if you are in Pima County, you may contact the Qualified Income Legal Team (Quilt) at 520-623-4625.  There is also information on the Marcopa County Superior Court website regarding the forms and filling them out.  Check it out at:  https://www.superiorcourt.maricopa.gov/sscDocs/pdf/drcv11iz.pdf.  This information may also be found at http://www.azcourts.gov/selfservicecenter/Self-Service-Forms for other counties outside of Maricopa County.
