Question: I have two children and was never married the mother of my children took my kids to FL without me knowing I haven't seen them in weeks and have no clue where they are at is there anything I can do?
Answer: No one can answer your question based on the information provided. Is there a custody order in place? Are you listed as the father on the birth certificate? You need to discuss the issue with an attorney and provide all relevant documentation like copies of your court papers showing custody, any paternity action that was filed, etc. Once an attorney understands the specific facts of your situation, he or she can advise you on the appropriate action to take. There are 3 programs in Arizona that you can use to get some inexpensive legal advice and guidance. One is the Modest Means Program. If you are financially qualified for the program, for a $75 fee, Modest Means offers a one hour consult with an experienced attorney. If you need additional help and the attorney agrees to take your case, the fee charged will not exceed $75 per hour. The telephone number is (866)637-5341. Both the Maricopa and Pima County Bar Associations have lawyer referral programs that offer a 30 minute consult with an experienced attorney. Maricopa County's Lawyer Referral Service offers a 30 minute consult for a fee of $40. The telephone number is (602) 257-4434. Pima County's Lawyer Referral Service offers a 30 minute consultation for a fee of $35. The telephone number is (520) 623-4625. If you do not have sufficient money to pay for a reduced fee consult, you can go elsewhere on this website and apply to see if you qualify for a free lawyer.
