Forms and Letters: Family Law

questions & answers

Question: I cannot find a form on Maricopa Superior Court for a Temporary Order of Child Custody for post decree. I only find a pre decree form. Can the pre decree form be used if I am filing a post decree Temporary Order? What are my alternatives?

Answer: The following is provided for general information only. To find out how the law applies to a specific situation, contact an attorney directly. Temporary Orders of a Post-decree nature are only for emergency situations such as immediate bodily harm, or the health, safety, and welfare of a child. Temporary Orders to change Child Custody are located on the Maricopa County Superior Court Self-Service website. However, as is noted on the site, be aware that when filing a Temporary post-decree order, the Temporary order MUST be accompanied by a "regular" modification of child custody. If there is no emergency, and a party simply wants to modify a child custody decree, that party can file the modification paperwork.
