    My sons father & I were never married, I never filed for child support as I did not want him to have any visitation or custody. My sons father & his mother would plot and tell other people they were planning to kill me & kidnap my son, they both...

    Ryan’s Answer

    I would suggest contacting an attorney in your jurisdiction. However, if you file for support, the court could possibly take into consideration income received from the settlement in calculating past and future support. However, if he has not fought for custody or parenting time rights to date, he may seek determination of parenting time in hopes of lowering his support obligation.

    Ryan’s Answer

    If he has indeed lied about his income, the court will not be too happy. However, despite this fact, generally, if he still demonstrates that at his new job he is making less than the previous $6,500/mo figure and likewise shows that his new change in circumstance is substantial and continuing, then the court may nonetheless end up modifying the support amount. However, not to the figure that he has requested.

  • How can I get my ex to pay child support on an existing order? AZ says they have no personal jurisdiction over my ex in ILL?

    I went to court and the judge would not hear the case. He said that he wanted too but he had no jurisdiction over him. I heard that if I could serve him here in AZ that would qualify but what do I serve him with? I have no idea when he will visit ...

    Ryan’s Answer

    It is true that if you were to serve him while he was in the State then Arizona would have personal jurisdiction over him to hear the matter. You would need to serve him with a Petition to Enforce the Child Custody Order. However, if you cannot personally serve him in Arizona, you can contact IL and have the Arizona Support order registered in that state. Once registered properly, then IL would have the ability to enforce it. Feel free to contact me if you have further questions.

  • Found that my son hasn't been receiving his support from his mother since living with a non-guardian relative out of state 4yrs

    His mother lives in Indiana and he lives in Georgia since the age of 14. He is now 18 getting ready to graduate from High School.

    Ryan’s Answer

    You should contact a family law attorney in the state of Indiana and file for enforcement against mother. Being that Indiana is where mother resides, they will have jurisdiction under applicable state statutes to enforce and enter an award against the mother for arrears even if the child is over 18.

    Ryan’s Answer

    I am not a texas attorney, so I would of course recommend that you seek further advice from a lawyer in your jurisdiction. However, generally you can petition the Court of proper jurisdiction for genetic testing to determine whether or not you are the actual father. If it is then determined that you are not the child support garnishment should then be ordered stopped.

  • How can I get equal 50/50 division in my divorce settlement in Arizona?

    Ryan’s Answer

    Arizona is a community property state, meaning that for the most part assets and liabilities assumed during the marriage should be equitably apportioned. However, equity does not always mean 50/50. More facts would need to be known to better determine why the court ruled as it did. However, if interested, please contact me to discuss this matter further.

    Ryan’s Answer

    You should contact an attorney regarding your options in modifying the parenting plan. Your current agreement may however require both parties to submit to mediation beofre modification can be brought. Also, if there is a parenting coordinator in your matter, you may have to seek their assistance first. For these reasons, I suggest that you meet with an Arizona Family Law attorney to discuss the facts of your matter further before moving forward.

    The court recently awarded my daughters previously absent father joint custody but they put a completly different name in the court order. The whole order is wrong so how can it be legally binding?

    Ryan’s Answer

    If the case number is correct it was most likely just a mistake. However, the court should be put on notice of the mistake in accord with Rule 85, Arizona Rules of Family Law Procedure in the event the ruling should have actually applied to the parties listed.

  • I have a divorce decree stipulating I have my son this year for Christmas, my ex is will fully ignoring it

    I have a divorce decree stipulating I have my son this year for Christmas, my ex is will fully ignoring it, what recourse do i have ?

    Ryan’s Answer

    If you can demonstrate that your Ex is not going to comply with the holiday schedule, you can file for emergency enforcement and ask the judge to reaffirm the terms of your parenting time schedule. This will go a long way to allowing you to successfully hold your ex in contempt if the holiday schedule is thereafter not followed.
