Question: I have joint custody and am needing to file a petition to prevent relocation. The court gave me a blank title page packet. What do I need to include in this petition?
Answer: The packet should include instructions. If it does not, you can go to The website for the Superior Court of Arizona which may direct you to Maricopa County Superior Court. Click on the self-help center, get to the family law forms and look for instructions. If you are still confused, you may need to talk with a lawyer to help you fill out the paperwork. There are 3 programs in Arizona that you can use to get some inexpensive legal advice and guidance. One is the Modest Means Program. For a $75.00 fee, the Modest Means Program will arrange a one hour consult with an experienced attorney. The telephone number is (866) 637-5341. Both the Maricopa County Bar Association and the Pima County Bar Association have lawyer referral services that offer a 30 minute consult with an experienced attorney. Maricopa County's Lawyer Referral Service offers a 30 minute consultation for a fee of $40.00. The telephone number is (602) 257-4434. Pima County's Lawyer Referral Service offers a 30 minute consultation for a fee of $35.00. The telephone number is (520) 623-4625.
