QUESTIONS

  • my husband and his ex wife have joint custody of there son. the ex wife has now moved out of state and gave 24 hour notice . does she have any rights to her court order any more ? we are planning on filing a change of custody soon but she feels she still has rights . when all she is doing is more harm to our son by coming in and out of his life all the time and not helping with paying her support and she is back in her support about 15k .
  • My parental rights were severed to my son who was born in 2003, members of my family have visitation rights. Is there anyway I can request to visit? And how old does he need to be to have contact with me?
  • My children are 15 and 9. I would like to take us on a trip to Europe. When looking at the passport papers it says I need the "other" parent to sign off on Form DS-3053, consent for a minor child to get a passport. My children's father hasn't had ANY contact with them in the past 9+ years. Is there a way around this? Can I file something with Arizona court? Doesn't the length of time count as abandonment by him? Thank you.
  • I was fired for forwarding an email deemed offensive...no nudity but the word penis appeared. Other people have received only reprimands for like offenses. I believe the termination was personal because the Pres. didn't like me...My sales performance was not in question. Others have numerous formal complaints against them and were ordered to anger mgmt. classes, but still employed. I knew there was a policy against what I did...even my boss and I traded emails before. Do I have a chance at any recourse?

  • I am trying to file a modification for support. I have talked to numerous agencies regarding the fact that I have no information (salary and address) for the other party involved. DCSE told me to file it with my info and they would send the packet to the other party to be completed. A clerk of the court rep. said that I had to make some effort to serve the other party- or my modification would be thrown out. What is the actual answer to whether or not I can file with just my information, and the court will send off the packet or if I have to attempt to serve the other party?
