Answer:

The link in the article on Name changes has been updated. The forms for a name change in Maricopa County can be found at the self-service website on the court's webpage. In addition to Maricopa County, many other county courts offer the same services. Find your County Superior Court.

The filling fees in Superior Court are listed in Arizona Revised Statute § 12-284. That staute says "Petition for change of name 115.00".

In addition, the Arizona statutes that govern name changes are § 12-601 (application) and § 12-602 (notice and effect of change on rights and responsibilities)
