Question: i'm unsure if i am able to apply for child support if my child's father moved out of the country...
The mere fact that a potential obligor (that's what they call people who owe child support!) may have moved out of the country does not prevent the other parent from applying for child support. But the other parent does have to apply in a state with which the obligor previously had some connection - either because the obligor lived there, or because of some other circumstance. See A.R.S. § 25-1221(A). Ultimately, the obligor must be served.
You may want to consult with a private attorney who is familiar with child support litigation, or consult with the Attorney General's child support division about the possibility of state involvement.
