Rule 91.6. Orders that Affect Parenting Orders
If a limited jurisdiction court issues a harassment injunction and the order affects a party's parenting rights in a legal decision-making or parenting time order issued by a court of this state, the affected party may petition for relief from the order under this rule in the family court cause number. The petition must comply with Rule 91, must state that relief is requested under this rule, and must state the details demonstrating that the injunction affects the party's parenting rights.
If the superior court finds that the harassment injunction is affecting the party's parenting rights in a legal decision-making or parenting time order, the superior court may:
(a) direct the limited jurisdiction court to transfer the order to the superior court under a superior court cause number;
(b) join any third party who is a party to the injunction to the proceeding in the superior court but only in a newly assigned cause number and not as a party in the family court case;
(c) schedule a concurrent proceeding between the matters;
(d) direct that notice be provided to the third party of any hearing related to the harassment injunction;
(e) conduct such proceedings as necessary to reconcile the orders; or
(f) modify the orders as deemed appropriate.
