After you have waited the required time frames, paid the response fee, and attended the Parenting Information Program (if you have children) you can submit a Consent Decree by mail or you can set a hearing on the Internet at ezCourtForms, or call 602-372-3332 to schedule a time to come to court and have your paperwork signed during a hearing.
You can choose how you want to obtain your final judgment or decree if your case is filed at the Downtown Phoenix Courthouse, Southeast Courthouse, Northeast Courthouse or the Northwest Courthouse.
- Consent Decree by Mail: If you want a Consent Decree signed without coming to the courthouse, you can mail your paperwork to Family Court Administration, 201 W., Jefferson, 6th floor, Phoenix Arizona 85003 (Phoenix or Northeast cases) or 14264 W. Tierra Buena Lane, Surprise, Arizona 85374 (Northwest cases). For Mesa cases you can submit your paperwork to Family Court Administration, 222 E. Javelina Drive, Mesa, Arizona 85201 to Suite 1300.

- Consent Decree on Demand: You can schedule a hearing time to have your consent decree signed* on the Internet at ezCourtForms, or by calling 602-372-3332. If you call to schedule your hearing before noon, your hearing can be scheduled for as soon as the following day.
At the time of your hearing, you will report to the Default room on the 3 rd floor at 201 W. Jefferson if your case is filed at the Downtown Phoenix Courthouse.
