Both parties shall exchange updated disclosure statements required by Rules 49 and
50, Arizona Rules of Family Law Procedure, including an exchange of all relevant
information, documents, and exhibits on or before April 22, 2013. I misunderstood these instructions and turned them in a week later. how can I go about fixing this problem before the trial?
Disclosure statements under Rules 49 and 50 are not actually submitted to the Court. They are exchanged between the parties. Exchanging them one week late is typically not an issue, and you should not worry about it before trial.

I agree with Mr. Nemiro. You can call the opposing party or attorney and let them know the disclosure will be late. Usually its not a problem. The judge will most likely view it as a minor oversight, especially if you're representing yourself.

Unless the other side files a motion with the court to exclude evidence or witnesses due to late disclosure, there is nothing to worry about or fix.
