Attorneys Required to E-File Family Law Case Documents
Effective March 1, 2022, attorneys are required to e-file family law case documents, pursuant to Supreme Court Administrative Order 2021-183 2021-183 PDF.pdf (azcourts.gov).
Most court files are available to the public for review. Rule 43.1(f)(2) of the Arizona Rules of Family Law Procedure states that the filing party shall omit sensitive data (unless specifically requested by the court) from the documents to be filed in the court. Sensitive Data is defined in the rule as Social Security numbers, bank account numbers, credit card numbers, or other financial account numbers. You are encouraged to use the Sensitive Data form instead of including the information in your paperwork.
If the form requires Sensitive Data, write, See Sensitive Data Form, and ensure that the information is placed on that form. It is your responsibility to file updated Sensitive Data Forms when you have new information. The Clerk’s office will maintain the Sensitive Data Form in a confidential manner. Any party who includes Sensitive Data in documents filed with the Court, other than on a Sensitive Data Form, does so at the party’s own risk.
Name & Address Change
It is important that you maintain a current name and address with the Clerk of the Superior Court’s office. Arizona law requires that a change of address be submitted, in writing, to the Clerk’s office within 10 days of the address change.
