I was the primary care giver of my son and sense we have parted ways my ex won't answer any communication or let me see my son. We have no parenting plan or any custody established and when I call police they tell me she has the main desicion and when I went to court the judge wouldn't review my situation do to he knows my ex and claims conflict of interest. She also has the town police causing me problems because she works at the corner store by the court and police Station. I haven't seen my son for 3 months and can't seem to get any help only police harassment. Thanks
In situations where parents are not married the court relies on Arizona revised statues 25-801 through 25-808. I highly recommend that you seek advice of an attorney in order to establish your legal rights.
You likely need a family law lawyer to assist you with this case. If your paternity was not established, and you have no written agreement, the mom has presumptive decision making. That said, if she is withholding the child from you without nust cause eventually she will be found to be improper if you present the case well. You may be able to show parental alienation. If the judge recused due to conflict because she is his customer service gal at the little store by the court, you might be able to get a change of venue. Seek out counsel for more specific guidence. Read Arizona Revised Statute 25-403 and 25-803. I hope this helps.
This is dealing with Arizona law only and does not constitute a attorney client relationship. There is no privilege in this forum. The information is somewhat anecdotal because of the nature of applying fact to law and the limitations this forum provides.
