QUESTIONS

  • In 2003, my husband's girlfriend moved to AZ from IN. They had a daughter together born Feb. 2003. My husband has been court ordered to pay AZ courts because the mother of the child is currently receiving assistance from TANF. My husband has been told that he must get a attorney to establish visitation rights. My question is does the attorney have to practice law in AZ? We also cannot afford an attorney. What can we do?
  • My daughters mother is denying me the right to see my daughter after a recent break up we had. What steps do I need to take to insure vistiation and custody of my daughter
  • My ex-husband uses communication with our children to continue being verbally abusive to me. He also will not keep to set times that we agreed upon for parenting time. I have the children 5 days/week. What do I need to do to get a third party to handle communication and exchanges regarding our children? I do not want my ex-husband to be able to contact me or know where I live. How do I coordinate an order of protection/injunction against harassment with the local Court with a Supreme Court action (3rd party to handle interactions with the kids)?
  • I just recently found out the mother of my child let another man sign the birth certificate even though she knew he wasn’t the father. I’ve tried to be in my sons life since he was born but I can only see him on her terms. Now that I found out about this other guy, I can’t see him at all. I also just recently found out that my son lives with this other guy and not his mother. I want to file for custody but I don’t know where to start. I tried to do it before but she ducked and dodged the process server so my case was dropped. What are my options here?
  • Are there any type of communication laws, guidelines,(w/ the mother) that are necessary for when I have my children during my parenting time?
  • My son is 11. My son doesnt want to visit his father as often as outlined in the agreement, because his doesnt feel comfortable at his fathers house. He comes home very upset after his visits, because his father talks bad about me, according to my son, every day. He says speaking up wont help, because he wont simply stop for an hour or two and then continue again.Can he choose not to see his father as oulined in the parenting schedule? And if so, how should he/we take go about it?
  • How do I get a court date to see my mom? My sister won't let me see mom unless it's court ordered. She doesn't have any rights over mom but she has a restraining order against me based on a lie. I haven't done anything wrong or to her. She's the one using and abusing mom, not me.
  • As an unmarried mother with physical custody and no court orders- do I have to allow the father visitation?
  • i volunteering file for child support. but my ex is not letting me see my son. Which papers do i need to file to get visitation rights since i already filing for child support so i can pay her.
  • Can you file a motion for visitation without an attorney? My son was not married to his girlfriend they had a child they broke up and she has the child. She will not let my son see the child instead will take him to her parents and let him spend the weekend.
