Question: I'm sepporated from ex. She moved to Florida with the children. She was told by the court she would have to pay to send the kids to NY. She recently said she will no longer send them unless I pay for them to come. Ive taken her to court for breaking the court order before. Nothing seems to work. She also never lets me speak to the kids on the phone and now its been about 6mths since Ive spoken to them. Im tired of fighting. If I give up my rights as there parent do I still have to pay child support. She no longer wants me in their lives just wants me to pay child support.

Answer:

The following is general information about Arizona law. To find out how Arizona law applies to a specific situation, see the Where to Find an Attorney for Specific Legal Advice.

A.R.S. § 8-539. Effect of court order. An order terminating the parent-child relationship shall divest the parent and the child of all legal rights, privileges, duties and obligations with respect to each other except the right of the child to inherit and support from the parent. This right of inheritance and support shall only be terminated by a final order of adoption.

Title 25 of the Arizona Revised Statutes contains laws pertaining to child support.
