Question: can a grand parent file for child support when the mother is a minor but does not want it?
It depends on the current arrangements concerning care of this child. According to A.R.S. § 25-502, the superior court can hear a petition for child support brought by DES, a person having physical custody of the child, or a party to the case (e.g. biological parent).
To find out if this law, as well as other laws apply to your specific situation, you may want to consult with an attorney.
