Paying Arizona child support back payments -- Part I

Arizona divorce is difficult for the children. While the parents may be excited about embracing a better life, the children are usually very sad. Hence, in the best interest of the child, American courts, including those in Arizona, generally grant child custody to one parent and order the other parent to pay child support. It is mandatory for the non-custodial parent to pay that child support.

Arizona child support sometimes require legal intervention

Couples in Arizona may choose to part ways by way of an uncontested divorce. For a couple, divorcing in that manner may save a lot of time and money. However, there may be a catch. The couple must agree on all matters that would otherwise require a court resolution.

How paternity is established under Arizona law

Most Arizonans believe that fathers play a crucial role in the lives of their children, even when they do not live with them. With that belief and to serve the best interests of children, the state long ago made establishing the paternity of children a priority. Once established, the fact of paternity provides a father with specific legal rights.

Child custody modification and relocation in Arizona-Part II

Arizona residents may concur that a divorce becomes even more difficult when children are involved. In the best interest of the child, U.S. courts, including those in Arizona, usually order one parent to have custody of the child and order the other parent to pay child support. However, as many Arizona couples would agree, things are changing in some cases. In fact, there could be a substantial change in the circumstances surrounding the living arrangements of the custodial parent or the other parent and the child. One parent may need to relocate.
