QUESTIONS

  • I am a resident of Maricopa County in the state of Arizona. I am the legal father of a child by default and not the biological father. There was never a blood test performed by the court to establish paternity. This is an out-of-wedlock child who is now 12 years old and I was never married to the child's mother. I have been paying child support for this child for 12 years. I want to file a motion to disprove paternity and request that the judge order a DNA test since the mother will not cooperate with genetic testing. Since the paternity judgment, I have received information that at the time of conception the mother had engaged in a sexual relationship with another man who was actually her fiance. Do I have the right to reopen and challenge the paternity declaration against me if a post declaration genetic test shows that I am not the biological father?
  • I am a past sex offender. Not proud of it, but trying to keep my nose clean. I am home less and lost mt paper from the last registration, so i dont know when me renewal date is. I have been busy with the death of my daughter who passed away recently. Also I have been looking to going to school so Im not a burden on Social Security...I want to keep in compliance. Thank you.
  • Post Decree Modificiation for Legal Decision Making and Parenting time: The court vactated a BIA attorney hearing due to a report not being available and moved to dismiss the entire Petiton and place the case on the inactive calander. Opposing party requesting trial with no new evidence? Can I object? Or request a evidentiary hearing as we just had trial Oct 2017 (10 months ago).
  • After signing a lease back in March 2014 for 13 months for a certain price, the company now is saying that they made a 2% tax mistake and making every resident pay the extra from now on...it just seems to me once the lease is signed they couldn't raise the rent....so can an apt complex do that?
  • Is there a way to find out if I'm filling out my Petition For Modification Of Legal Decision-Making and Parenting Time Form 23 paperwork correctly. My Girlfriend is trying to change custody agreement due to her ex-husbands drug use and issues with the police. He only calls when he wants something from her and its not to see his daughter. He gets high and calls in the middle of the night but never speaks. What can we do to keep him away from her, he can not be trusted by anyone including the police.
  • I never took my son father down for child support . He was in prison for 8of the 14 years of our son life. Now I want child support. And to know if they will go back and make him pay for the back years
  • We have a 10 yr old daughter. My ex has supervised visitation, which he chooses not to participate in. He has not complied with any of the court orders to date. It should be noted that there is a history of drug abuse & mental illness. He has now started bullying me online & threatening to take me back to court again. The new theory is parental alienation even though it's of his own doing. My concern is the lies & harassment. I can't afford to lose my job because I support our daughter. I already changed jobs once because he repeatedly called & harassed me there. What options do I have?
  • I moved from AZ to Colorado to live with my mom because of abuse. I had a child with the man that I lived with who is 2yrs old. He has filed for paternity tests and sole custody. In the suit he made some serious acqusations against my mother and father. These statements are false and in no way shape or form can be proved. Can he simply make false statements to the court with no supporting proof of these statements?
  • My ex-boyfriend was arrested in 2014 & sentenced to 4.5 year. I ended the relationship shortly afterward for many reasons including physical & mental abuse. He threatened me if I ever left him & tried to kill me twice. After his arrest, I became homeless & all of our belongings were lost. I have since met someone else & have gotten married. I wrote my ex in prison to let him know his belongings were gone & that I had gotten married & not to come looking for me or his things upon his release. I am afraid he will come after me.Is it possible to get an Order of Protection prior to his release?
  • How long does it take for a new card to come in the mail?
