A: In Arizona, if you previously filed an "Intent to Lien" for $119,000 in May 2023 and now intend to file a "Lien" for $162,000, you generally do not need to file a new "Intent to Lien" for the increased amount. The "Intent to Lien" is meant to notify parties of your intent to file a lien and the amount you claim is owed to you. However, if you're now seeking to file a "Lien" for a higher amount, you would typically proceed with filing the "Lien" directly for the increased amount without filing a new "Intent to Lien."
