A party must file the notice at least 45 days before the hearing or trial, or by another date set by the court. If a hearing or trial is set fewer than 60 days in advance, the notice is deemed timely if a party files it within a reasonable time after the party is notified of the hearing or trial date.

(1) Arizona Rules of Evidence 602, 801-807, 901-903, and 1002-1005 do not apply; and
(2) the other Rules of Evidence, including Rule 403, still apply, except as provided in sections (c) and (d).
(c) Records of Regularly Conducted Activity. Regardless of whether a notice was filed, a record of regularly conducted activity as defined in Rule 803(6) of the Arizona Rules of Evidence or reports prepared pursuant to Rules 68 or 73 may be admitted into evidence without testimony of a custodian or other qualified witness regarding its authenticity if the record is relevant, reliable, and was timely disclosed.
(d) Affidavits of Financial Information. Any Affidavit of Financial Information required to be filed or served may be considered as evidence if offered as evidence by a party and admitted into evidence by the court.
