Rule 3.6. Simultaneous Juvenile Proceedings and Legal Decision-Making, and Parenting Time, and Child Support Proceedings
(A) When a pending family law proceeding and a pending dependency, guardianship or private severance proceeding involve the same parties, the parties must comply with Rule 5.1(a), ARFLP. Any party may move to consolidate the proceedings by written or oral motion. The Family Court judge may consult with the Juvenile Court judge concerning consolidation, or the Juvenile Court judge may consolidate the proceedings on its own motion. Written motions for consolidation must be filed in the juvenile case and copied to the family law case. The assigned juvenile division will rule on any such motion to consolidate. A copy of the ruling must be filed in the juvenile case and copied to the family law case file.
(B) Upon an adjudication of dependency, the Juvenile Court will consolidate any family law matter concerning the same parties with the juvenile matter to prevent conflicting orders in the family and juvenile cases and to allow the Juvenile Court, if appropriate, to determine legal decision-making and parenting-time issues necessary to protect a child. Any such orders must be made before the dismissal of the dependency matter and before unconsolidating the juvenile matter from the family law case.
(C) The assigned juvenile division may unconsolidate the family law matter or certain proceedings thereof temporarily and return it to the assigned family law division to allow that division to conduct proceedings during a dependency or guardianship matter.
