Answer: You will need to go back to court to petition to modify the custody order as set out in Arizona Revised Statutes, Section 25-411.  Your best bet is to talk to a lawyer before moving forward to get sound legal advice on the tactics and arguments to use.  There are three programs in Arizona that you can use to get some inexpensive legal advice and guidance.  One is the Modest Means Program.  You will need to apply for the program and meet the financial need qualifications.  Once qualified, Modest Means will send you a list of attorneys to choose from.  Then, for a $75 fee, you will receive a one hour consultation with the attorney.  If you need additional help and the attorney agrees to take your case, the fee charged will not be more than $75 per hour.  The telephone number is (866)  637-5341.  Both Maricopa and Pima County Bar Associations have Lawyer Referral programs that offer a 30 minute consult with an attorney.  Maricopa County's Lawyer referral Service offers a 30 minute consult with an experienced attorney for a fee of $40.  The telephone number is: (602) 257-4434.  Pima County Lawyer Referral Service offers a 30 minute consult with an experienced attorney for a fee of $35.  The telephone number is (520) 623-4625.  If you are unable to afford these modest fees, you can go to another portion of this website and apply to see if you meet the financial qualifications for a free lawyer.  Go to http://www.azlawhelp.org/accesstojustice.cfm.  If you do not wish to discuss your case with a lawyer, you can get the forms you need to file on the court's website.  By the way, custody is now called "legal decision-making."  Go to: https://www.azcourts.gov/selfservicecenter/Family-Law-Forms
