Child Support

questions & answers

Question: Okay, my daughter is 37 years old. Married and is there a chance to end the child support as it's been deducted from my check for along as I've been employed. Over 30 years. I know there were arrears but isn't there something one can do as it prevents jobs, loans etc. Rudy

Answer: When the court ordered you to pay child support arrearages, the judge would have considered interest and the amount of time you would need to continue paying.  Take a look at the order from the court.  If you believe you have paid everything you owed, you can file a motion with the court to terminate payments.  If you need help, it may be worth a small fee to sit down with a lawyer and review your paperwork.  There are three programs in Arizona that you can use to get inexpensive legal advice and guidance.  One is the modest means program.  You will need to apply for the program and meet the financial qualifications.  Once you are qualified, Modest Means will send you a list of attorneys whose practice covers your area of concern.  You select a lawyer from the list and will be entitled to a one hour consultation for $75.  If you need additional help and if the lawyer agrees to take your case, the most you will be charged is $75 per hours.  the telephone number is (866) 637-5341.  Both Maricopa County and Pima County have lawyer referral programs that offer a 30 minute consult with an attorney.  Maricopa County's Lawyer Referral Service offers a 30 minute consult with an experienced attorney for $40.  The telephone number is  (602) 257-4434.  Pima County's Lawyer Referral Service offers a 30 minute attorney consult for $35.  The telephone number is (520) 623-4625.
