Maricopa County Family Court Guidelines for Parenting Time During COVID

by Annette Burns on April 4, 2020

The Maricopa County Family Court Department (Superior Court) has issued guidelines for parents to know how to navigate their parenting plans, court orders, and communications with the other parent during the COVID pandemic. They can be found here on the Superior Court website, posted on 4/3/2020. Please review those guidelines for answers to some of your questions about whether children should be exchanged pursuant to parenting time orders (YES), and what you should do if you feel you have serious evidence that your child’s safety or your safety are at risk from following parenting time orders. In general, to change a parenting time schedule, a filing for modification of the schedule is required, and the Superior Court is prepared to hearing those filings on an emergency basis, where an emergency is warranted.
