Child Custody

questions & answers

Question: I am getting ready to file papers for mediation to try to change custody arangments . But my ex has moved 10 times in the past 3 years and won't give me his physical address. How do I go about having him served.

Answer:

The following is provided for general information only. To find out how the law applies to a specific situation, contact an attorney directly.

The Rules of Family Law Procedure discuss service of process (how to serve papers on another party). You can see the Rules of Family Law Procedure by going to the Arizona Supreme Court's website. Rule 41 discusses service of process within Arizona and Rule 42 discusses service of process outside of Arizona. While it is important to understand the entire rule, in certain circumstances service by publication or alternative service may be appropriate.
