Rule 47.1. Simplified Child Support Orders
(a) Motion for a Temporary Simplified Child Support Order.
(1) Generally. Unless a local rule provides otherwise, a party seeking a temporary child support order under A.R.S. §§ 25-315 or 25-817 may request a simplified order by filing with the court:
(A) a verified Motion for Simplified Temporary Child Support Order;
(B) a completed Child Support Worksheet;
(C) a proposed Simplified Temporary Child Support Order; and
(D) a proposed Income Withholding Order.
(2) Required Disclosures. The moving party must serve the motion with the proposed simplified Temporary Child Support Order and proposed Income Withholding Order. The motion must advise the responding party of a requirement to file a timely response and a completed Child Support Worksheet, and must advise the responding party that failure to do so may result in the court entering the requested Temporary Child Support Order.
(3) Notice of Hearing. If the moving party requested a hearing, the moving party must serve the responding party with a notice of hearing.
(4) Service. The motion must be served on the responding party in the manner set forth under Rules 40(f)(1) or 41, as applicable. The moving party must file a proof of service as provided in those rules.
(b) Response.
(1) Timing. The responding party must file any response not later than 20 days after the motion is served, if served in Arizona, or 30 days after the motion is served, if served outside Arizona.
(2) Request for Hearing. At the time of filing a response, the responding party may file a request for hearing. The responding party must serve the response and request for hearing on the moving party under Rule 43.
(3) Uncontested Motions. If the responding party does not file a response or if the response does not contest the child support requested in the motion, the court will not set a hearing. The court will enter the proposed Simplified Temporary Child Support Order and the Income Withholding Order if the available information in support of the temporary order appears accurate and provides the court with adequate information to determine the amount of child support under the Arizona Child Support Guidelines.
