Question: 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

Answer: If you are in Maricopa or Pima counties, you may want to go to the superior court self service center. They have all the forms needed to establish volunteer paternity - mom married. The Service Center does not provide legal advice, however, they do offer some suggestions in filing the papers and where you may obtain information.
