Thank you for the questions and comments. Are there current court orders in place (parenting time and decision making orders) from the Superior Court?
If not, get some fast! If there are court orders in place, you can file an emergency petition with the Court to enforce the current orders and you may want to call law enforcement.

As long as her legal mother is the ONLY guardian in the picture and WANTS you to have guardianship, it should work. But if there is a dad in the picture, it can get messy, quickly. Also can get very messy if mom changes her mind at any point.

My ex took our daughter and disappeared five years ago. After tracking her down and getting her into court, I received joint custody. Three years later, I lost custody at a different hearing. My ex is now moving back to phx where we're from, and I...
Thank you for the questions and issues. Obviously, this cannot be easy for you. Why did you joint custody? And has mom moved back to Arizona as of today? Do you have current court orders issued from a court in Arizona, or are those orders from a court in another state?
An experienced attorney could petition the court for a modification in your parenting plan and legal decision making but first the attorney would need some questions answered like the ones above.

Mom got caught shop lifting took classes paid money it was done early 2016. Later that year got convicted for organized retail crime and stealing someone identity class4 felony got unsupervised probation all was done end of 2016. Now she violated...
Thank you for the questions and comments. Yes, this definitely could be grounds for seeking sole, legal decision making and increased parenting time or only supervised time for mom. Especially if she is going to be incarcerated. First and foremost, the court looks to the well-being of the child(ren). A mom who is breaking the law and violation court orders (probation) is likely to be a poor role model to the children.
Do you have CPS (DCS) reports? When did these violations occur? Are they recent? The more recent, the more likely your chances of success.

I am active duty Air Force living in Las Vegas. My ex-Husband lives in Gilbert, AZ with our 2 daughters (9, 4). We have been separated 3 yrs., divorced 1+ year. He works as a pizza delivery man and at a local print shop. I pay child support in the...
Thank you for the questions and comments. This is probably a tough time for you and not very easy to post regarding your family's struggles. Yes, you could probably submit a Petition for Modification to Parenting time (think custody) and if that work also ask for a change in child support. Ultimately, for you to get time (more time) with your kids, you are going to want to show the Court that it is in the best interest of the children. You want to show how there are changes that make it better for the children.
Since the children reside in AZ, you are gonna need to ask the Superior Court to modify your current orders. Do you plan on staying in Nevada? Could a move to Arizona be in the cards? Even if you do not move, the Court could still, easily award you significant parenting time.

I have over 90% of the parenting time for my children. The non-custodial parent does not show up even for all her scheduled parenting time and is several months behind on child support. If I am successful at terminating her rights, and my current ...
Thank you for the questions and comments. The permanent dislocation of a parent's right with their child is not normally a function of the Family Law court but is handled in the Juvenile Court. And frankly, it is not easy. Parents' are offered procedural rights with their children and a judge is going to help insure those rights for each parent and any children.
Have you requested the juvenile court sever the other parent's rights? Have you attempted a modification of parenting time in the family court? And yes, there is a good chance that child support would end if rights are severed but that would be rather extraordinary. You might first want to look to a Petition to Modify Parenting Time with the Family Law Court.

Daughter turns 8 this year her mother cut all ties with me for bout 6 year recently let me back into my childs life but when she was born her mother refused to put me on the birth certificate then when my daughter was around 2 she got married and ...
Thank you for the excellent question. This could be exxtremely complicated. Did the soon-to-be ex-husband KNOW that the child was not his? If he fraudulently signed an acknowledgement of paternity then you may have a remedy. Why did you not contest paternity years ago? Sign the ex-husband was the dad for at least 6 years, the Court may be reluctant to change that but it is certainly possible.
You could file a Motion requesting the Court reconsider or change the acknowledgement of paternity. Especially if it was done under the presumption of fraud. Also, if mom knew that the ex-husband was not the biological father, you could also use that to find fraud / misrepresentation.

My son goes with his father every other weekend . He has come back 3 different times with bite marks. I took him to the urgent care they said it was fleas. I have taken pictures and documented the days. I still send him with his dad but what can I...
Appreciate the questions and comments. Asking is probably not easy but if you believe the flea bites and other things are harming your son, you could file a Petition to Modify Parenting Time and Legal Decision Making with the Superior Court.
Besides the flea bites, are there any other indicators that the father is being a poor parent?

I agreed to modify support to lower payment for father in December 2016. He has made one payment since and owes back support he refuses to help with our children. He has a lawyer however I do not and don't know what to say or ask for in court. Ple...
Thank you for the questions and comments on a Sunday. So we are clear; do you have any future court appearances set regarding support? I mean -- are you going to court soon about child support?
Do you want to enforce the current support obligation? How much is he behind in the current payments? And how much does he owe in arrears?
You could petition the Superior Court to enforce child support but since your ex has an attorney that could be a little scary. Child support is a very serious and important matter but taking on a lawyer when you do not have one can lead to undesirable results for you and your family.
Here is a link to the Superior Court's instructions and petition to enforce:
