Arizona's Sheriff Arpaio seeks out those owing child support

Whether celebrated or vilified, most will admit that Maricopa County's Sheriff Joe Arpaio gets results. This was once again demonstrated this past Father's Day, when Sheriff's Deputies and volunteers went out in search of men and women with outstanding warrants. Specifically, the people they went looking for were all parents who were not paying their child support as ordered. With about 300 outstanding warrants received by the Sheriff's Office each year, deputies take certain days, such as Father's Day, Mother's Day and Valentine's Day, to focus on executing the warrants.

Child support orders and modifications in Arizona

Arizona parents going through the divorce process may be interested in hearing about an unusual twist concerning child support payments. A couple in Iowa were divorced in 2004 and for years afterward, they fought over the terms of their divorce settlement and custody of their children. In 2011, the ex-wife was convicted of first-degree murder and incarcerated. Despite her conviction and loss of custody of her children, a judge ruled that her ex-husband had to pay her back child support and divorce settlement payments.

Assets could be hidden using digital currency

Arizona residents who use Bitcoin and are undergoing a divorce may be interested to learn about a budding issue relating to the electronic currency: divorce courts and lawyers are becoming increasingly aware of the ability of soon-to-be-spouses to hide assets using Bitcoins. During the divorce process, both spouses are asked to fully disclose their income and all financial assets. This information is used to help determine property division, as well as how much one party should pay in alimony or spousal support. Some would rather pay less, so they attempt to hide their assets.

Ex-husband of "Breaking Bad" actress seeks child support payments

Parenthood often means making difficult decisions regarding children. This is especially true for parents dealing with a divorce. Arizona parents are aware that child custody and child support decisions are not easily made during a divorce, and they often create tension and arguments between parents. They can greatly affect the divorcing spouses, as well as the children, during dissolution and post-divorce. Even when an amicable child support arrangement is reached, the agreement might later require modification or enforcement.
