Will this impact his costody arrangement with his 11 year old? Specifically, is this legal in AZ yo live together?
  • Can I request "in-home" assistance thru AHCCCS? We are in need of assistance for someone with mild Alheimer's as reminders for taking medicine and for personal health & safety a few hours a day. Is this possible thru AHCCCS?
  • When my daughter was born 8 yrs ago I was married to a man who is not her father. When we got divorced my attorney had him sign a "waiver of paternity" and I thought that would be all i needed to take his name off, however I'm having difficulty getting this donewithout an attorney. I was hoping someone might be able to get me on the right path
  • I WAS CHARGED WITH A FELONY IN AZ WHICH WAS DISMISSED AFTER SUCCESSFULLY COMPLETING THE TASC PROGRAM. THE FELONY 4 IS NARCOTIC POSSESION. HOWEVER, I WAS ATTEMPTING TO FILL A FRAUDULENT PRESCRIPTION AND WAS NOT HOLDING ANY NARCOTICS WHEN I WAS ARRESTED. WAS I CHARGED PROPERLY? HOW CAN I CLEAR THIS ARREST FROM MY RECORD?
  • Hi, Does anyone know what does it take to get Back Ground records cleared for a misdemeanor? I can't even get an apartment due to some horrible day in 2010 its now jan. 2016, I keep having this old case that was dismissed in court, show up, this is a nightmare some five yrs. later. what do you suggest ???
  • how long i have to wait to get remarried after having the decree of divorce?
  • We have Jount Custody, with I being Primary. His parenting time is every other weekend. He is moving 175 miles away soon, do I have to meet him halfway without going to court first? I do not have reliable transportation due to him being $10,0000 behind in Child support. Would I be in contempt or would he need to get a court date to first change the parenting time to include meeting half way? Currently he is to pick them up at school and drop them back off at school, as we do not get along. Does that remain in effect till legally changed?
  • Original visitation & support orders were given in WA eight years ago. That order included $650 a month in childcare which is no longer needed since the child is 11. The custodial parent lived in CA at the time of order, but filed in WA. The non-custodial parent now resides in AZ. If the non-custodial parent was to modify the support order, what state would that be in …. in AZ? Or is jurisdiction still WA?
  • Can I adopt my spouse’s children if I am a convicted felon?  And what is an expedited case plan with child protective services mean?

  • Is there a 3 day release from jail if not charged rule? But if the jail lists charges on the inmate, doesn't that mean that they have been charged? And if the preliminary hearing is scheduled, doesn't that mean that they have been charged, but not necessarily indicted? On major methamphetamine trafficking charges, isn't it unlikely someone would get out on the above-mentioned 3 day "rule"? Without a bond? Just turned loose?
