How to Register a Child Custody Order in Arizona | Hildebrand Law

Tue 27th Nov, 2018 Arizona Child Custody Laws

If you have a child custody order from another state, you need to know how to register a child custody order in Arizona.

A parent can register a child custody order issued by a court by another state in Arizona by sending the court in Arizona a letter or other document requesting the registration of the child custody order in Arizona, two copies of the child custody order issued by the other state, one of which needs to be a certified copy of the child custody order.

You must also file a notarized statement under oath indicating that to the best of your knowledge and belief the child custody order being registered is the last child custody order issued in the other state.

Lastly, you must include the name and address of the person seeking to register the child custody order from another state in Arizona, as well as the name and address of any other person, including the other parent, who has custody or visitation rights to the child or children.

When the Arizona court receives the proper registration documents, the court must register that child custody order as a foreign judgment in Arizona. Written notice is then provided to the persons identified as having custody or parenting time rights to the child or children.
