Answer:

The court system refers to a change of custudy orders as a "modification" of child custody.

Please see the article, Things You Should Know about Custody and Parenting Time, specifically the section entitled "How can a court’s custody order be changed?" for more information.

If  you are in Maricopa Couty you may also want to visit the Superior Court's  webpage which lists the specific documents that you will need to modify child support for that jurisdiction.  This information is listed under the section titled "I need to modify child custody or parenting time. What do I do?"
