I recommend that you consult with an estate planning attorney who can explain to you how your affairs would be handled in the absence of a Will (or other estate planning tool). Once you understand your options, you'll be in a better position to decide how to proceed. Many law firms, including ours, offer a free initial consultation.See question
My children's father moved over 250 mi from me and is still in AZ. From what I have gathered he is to request this from the court and needs to be a court order. I can send in my own statement as to why I do not agree with him moving.
Arizona's statute regarding relocation refers to moving with the children. If the children reside primarily with you, but he is the one who moved away, then the relocation statute does not apply. If he has relocated with the children, then this is a completely different issue. Either way, it may be necessary to revise the parenting plan to accommodate long distance parenting time. I recommend you consult with an experienced family law attorney who can gather additional information from you and discuss your options. Many law firms, including ours, offer a free initial consultation.See question
My husband pay child support on the 1st of every month. Sometimes he does not get paid by the first but until a couple days later. How many days (grace period) does he have to give her the check/ money order ?
Generally speaking, although the child support obligation begins to accrue on the first day of the month, it is not considered delinquent unless it remains unpaid as of the last day of the month. Most child support orders are set up for either an Income Withholding Order (garnishment) or for payments to be sent through the Support Payment Clearinghouse to ensure that proper credit is given for the payments.See question

It is impossible to speculate about what another attorney's advice or strategy might be, and likewise impossible to offer advice or strategy without knowing more about the facts of your case. I would recommend first asking your attorney for a meeting to discuss her "plan" for your case so you have a better understanding of how she intends to prepare and present your case. If you feel uncomfortable with your attorney's approach, it may be helpful to obtain a "second opinion" from another attorney who is experienced in these matters.See question

I recommend that you consult with a family law attorney who can review your decree and determine whether there are any validity issues regarding your remarriage. Generally speaking, once a divorce is final, the spouses are free to remarry; however, if there is language in your decree that suggests otherwise, you will want to discuss this with an attorney.

Generally speaking, you are permitted to change the terms of your estate planning documents at any time, so long as you are legally competent to do so. Depending on the nature of the change, it may be appropriate to do a simple "codicil" (supplement) to your existing Will, or it may be appropriate to execute a new Will. I encourage you to consult with an experienced estate planning attorney to discuss your options. Many law firms, including ours, offer a free initial consultation.See question

In order to name a legal guardian for your child in the event of your death, you would typically need to execute a Last Will and Testament that sets forth your selection of a guardian (and at least one alternate if your selection is unable or unwilling to serve). There are many other estate planning considerations that may be relevant since you are the single parent of a minor child, so I recommend you consult with an experienced attorney who can discuss these issues with you. Many law firms offer a free initial consultation.See question

You would need to consult with an attorney who is licensed in the jurisdiction where the action was filed. Although there may be attorneys located in AZ who are also licensed in TX, it may be more practical to hire an atty located in TX since they will not have the same challenges related to traveling to any necessary court appearances. You might consider re-posting your request on the Avvo site, but indicate that the jurisdiction is TX rather than AZ.See question
