  • Motion to reconsider

    I feel that the judge made some mistakes in court yesterday. The child support was calculated incorrectly, the time I've had my children the past three years was calculated incorrectly which in turn made my arrears a lot more. The judge also inclu...

    Ryan’s Answer

    From what you have written, the judge does possess the power to order has he/she did. However, if you are not happy with the decision you can of course file a motion to reconsider pursuant to Rule 45, Arizona Rules of Famiy Law Procedure. However, you must keep in mind that filing of the motion to reconsider will not extend the time for appeal. I would suggest that you contact an experienced family law attorney to discuss the details further and/or assist you in drafting the reconsideration motion,

  • I live in AZ and have child support paid through WA. I wish to modify the payment but need to do it from AZ with low fee.

    Can you suggest any pro bono or para legals in WA.?

    Ryan’s Answer

    Generally once the order is registered in Arizona, Arizona courts will have jurisdiction to enforce the order from another state if the party against whom enforcement is sought lives in Arizona. There are only few circumstances in which Arizona would actually have jurisdiction to actually modify an order issued in another state. One such exception being if both parties and the child subject to the order no longer reside in the issuing jurisdiction. Please contact me to discuss the matter further if needed.

  • How do i find out if my kids dad has been served child support papers yet

    am i notified

    Ryan’s Answer

    If you hired a process server, contact the server. If this was a state initiated action, contact the state child support agency and provide your information. Being that you are in Maricopa county, you can also go to the Superior Court website and search your case history, which is a bit delayed, but will reflect the date of service and filing of the same.

    My boyfriend pays child support but they had a court date without tell us and the mom. She will not let us have his son for more then a few hours but we want to start having him for a weekend, every other holiday, and stuff like that.

    Ryan’s Answer

    Contact an attorney in your State to determine whether a custody order was already entered. If so, then you may be able to Petition the court seeking modification of the order or even to have that order set aside if for instance you can demonstrate that you were never actually provided notice of the hearing wherein custody was established. Best advice, check with a local family law attorney.
