Family Law

questions & answers

Question: I have been trying to go through the Department of Children's Services to get my ex wife (who lives in Alabama) to pay child support for almost 3 years now. Is there anything I can do through the legal system to finally get this resolved? Three years is an awfully long time to get a mother to pay child support when it took her a matter of weeks to get the court to issue an income withholding order on me when she was the custodial parent.

Answer: A family law attorney may be able to help with child support issues.  First check with the Department of Economic Security: https://des.az.gov/services/child-and-family/child-support/arizona-child-support-services-contact-information.
