My husband and I are separated, I want to move out of state with our son.can I without anything filled through the court yet?
It's risky. If your husband objects, he may be able to require your son to be returned if he files for divorce or legal separation. Better to work it all out here in Arizona first. Also Google Arizona Revised Statutes 25-408 for further guidance in your "relocation" case.See question

My son is only 6 so I know the courts will not take his feelings into account, but he no longer wants to go to his fathers house because he says that his dad just leaves him alone all of the time or makes him play with his girlfriends daughter dow...
There is no set legal age for a child to chose either custody or parenting time. Generally, the opinion of the older, more mature, articulate, and un-coached child is given more weight in the judge's final decision. It is preferred that the child's wishes be determined in a clinical, not trial, setting. This can be done through a court-appointed child psychologist.See question
It happened very fast and I'm not happy with the settlement after thinking it over nothing was signed but the agreement was recorded by the court reporter. Can I still negotiate my settlement or is it binding?
The Rule provides that an agreement is valid if it is on the record before a court reporter. It does not matter that you were unrepresented. Experience has shown that an agreement "within the 40 yard lines" of reasonable will be affirmed by the Court. You need a lawyer.See question

The ultimate test is what is in the children's, not the parents', best interests. Vaccinations and school attendance are only 2 factors. Google A.R.S. 25-403, as amended, for a more complete list of the relevant factors.See question

My ex husband calls several times during my visitation to monitor location. I do not have court ordered supervised visitation.
Great question which highlights your concern over privacy and potentially his indirect stalking of you versus a father's concern for the safety of his son. There is no absolute answer, although I would question Father's true motivation. But expect your ex-husband to argue: Why should you care if you have nothing to hide, and doesn't the GPS provide one extra layer of safety? It's a close call, however, any excessive calling during your time is not.See question
to live with? If we have joint custody and me (mom) has been primary custodial parent since we separated?
There is no "magic age" in Arizona when a child can decide between parents. The ultimate test is what arrangement is in the child's best interest. The older, the more mature, the more articulate a child is in stating their preference, then the more weight is given to their choice, but it is not the only factor - see ARS 25-403 for the list of other factors.See question
