What is the name of your state? AZ
I have seen many times the, seemingly, interchangeable use of the words "Petition" & "Motion".
I don't want to get into "legal advice"; so I'll try to present this in a non-legal manner so that someone can respond!
It's my opinion that, a Petition is used to initiate a court action and a Motion is used to "steer the court" to it's final decision.
Right, wrong, sort of right? Just curious!
