Question: What form do I file I need to modify temporary orders regarding parenting time arrangements?
Answer: Temporary orders for legal decision-making and parenting time are authorized by Arizona Revised Statutes, Section 25-404. Normally, temporary orders are issued pending the final decree of dissolution. After the temporary orders are set, the parties are expected to work together to come to an agreement on final orders. If that is not possible, the court decides. Unless there are serious reasons for changing the temporary orders, courts tend to wait for the final decree. It might be wise for you to speak to an attorney if there is a pressing need for modification. There are 3 programs in Arizona that you can use to get some inexpensive legal advice and guidance. One is the Modest Means Program. If you are financially qualified for the program, for a $75 fee, Modest Means will offer a one hour consult with an attorney. If you need additional help and the attorney agrees to take your case, the fee charged will not exceed $75 per hour. The telephone number is (866)637-5341. Both the Maricopa and Pima County Bar Associations have lawyer referral programs that offer a 30 minute consult with an experienced attorney. Maricopa County's Lawyer Referral Service offers a 30 minute consult for a fee of $40. The telephone number is (602) 257-4434. Pima County's Lawyer Referral Service offers a 30 minute consultation for a fee of $35. The telephone number is (520) 623-4625.
