Question: I am 3 months pregnant, not married and do not live with the father. Is he responsible for and of my prenantal bills, and is he responsible for the hopsital birthing cost?
Answer: For your specific situation, please contact a lawyer. In the Arizona Revised Statue 35-320, it states, “In a proceeding for dissolution of marriage, legal separation, maintenance or child support, the court may order either of both parents owing a duty of support to a child, born or adopted by the parents, to pay an amount reasonable and necessary for support of the child, without regard to marital misconduct.” You may file for child support by following the instructions found on this website: http://www.superiorcourt.maricopa.gov/sscDocs/packets/drs1iz.pdf Also, you may also call 602-506-3762 for an appointment for assistance (in English or Spanish) at the Phoenix courthouse location. Ask for the “Calculations Department”. There is a fee for this service.
