If she has lived in Arizona longer than 6 months you file there, if not you file in Utah, if that is where she moved from.

It has been longer than 6 months. Do I have to put in a change of venue or just file there? And Do I have to get a lawyer from Arizona?

Please consider that interstate custody matters can be complicated and there could be factors with considerable weight other than 6 month residency.  

Does the UT court order address removal issue ?  How many jurisdictions has the child resided since departing UT ?.  What if Az. finds cause to reject jurisdiction ?  There are many considerations.
