Pima County Local Rule 3 often refers to court-approved forms. Those forms approved for use by the Superior Court in Pima County may be located on the Court's website http://www.sc.pima.gov, or may be located in the Self-Service Center of the Law Library at the Superior Court, or at the Pima County Bar Association, and at the Arizona Supreme Court's website, http://www.supreme.state.az.
(B) Assignment of Presiding Judge and Judges of the Family Law Bench. The Presiding Judge of the Family Law Bench will, in addition to trial duties, exercise supervisory powers over the Family Law Bench and the Conciliation Court, through the Director of Conciliation Court, as required by statute, and by the Presiding Judge of the Superior Court. The Presiding Judge of the Family Law Bench is also designated as the presiding judge of the Conciliation Court.
(C) Scope and Responsibilities of Family Law Bench. All family law matters brought pursuant to A.R.S. Title 25 and the issuance of Orders of Protection will be assigned to a judicial officer of the Family Law Bench, unless otherwise assigned by the Presiding Judge of the Family Law Bench or the Presiding Judge of the Superior Court.
(D) Family Law Calendar. At the time a case is filed with the Clerk of the Court, it will be assigned to a Family Law Bench judicial officer.
