Answer:

The person filing for modification is called the petitioner and the person responding to that modification is called the respondent. In addition to filing paperwork with the court, the petitioner is expected to serve the paperwork on the other party (the respondent). Without serving the respondent (the other party) with the paperwork, the other party may not be aware of the court action. The court is asking for proof that the other person was given the paperwork (served).

Dismissal without prejudice means that the court will allow the party to file that action in the future.

Some of the courts have informational packets that go along with the necessary forms. Those packets can walk you through the process in more detail. Some of the courts have self-service centers, while others provide the information online. You can view the information for modification in Maricopa, Pima and Coconino County.
