- MOTION TO REVIEW NEW EVIDENCE: The answer is probably no, but you can give it a try by filing a Motion for Reconsideration. You'll need to explain (1) why you don't produce this evidence at trial because the Court can't consider newly discovered evidence that could have been found...View More

Did California issue a child support order? If so, it must be registered here for the custody case, in which support must be determined. An Arizona court cannot modify the California support order unless it's properly registered and in front of the Arizona court. For that reason, I don't...View More

But let's be clear on what child support is. First, it's not meant to equalize the living situation between the parents. Second, it's done on a formula. The fact he has a two-bedroom and bought a Camaro are not relevant to how...View More
A few months ago, a one-night-stand called out of the blue to tell me her 10 month old baby was mine. The man she was in a relationship with at the time of birth signed the birth certificate but apparently they are no longer together. We did a paternity test but I never actually saw any paperwork....

You asked, "I guess my question is can she come back in a few years and sue me for financial assistance after all this back and forth?" It's possible, but you'd have to be legally declared the Father first.

You should file a Petition to Enforce and ask the Court to order him to amend his taxes for those years within thirty days of the Court's order.

His girlfriend said all communications have to go through his lawyer about the kids behavior and did not allow us to speak to him about the child’s behavior. No court order has been made, no child support amount has been determined since him and... View More
If that's what he is requesting you do, you should do it. Explain to the lawyer what is going on. A good lawyer will take to Father and say, "Telling the other parent to communicate through me about the children does not help your case."

The question really hinges on whether he is current for the 2022 tax year. He can be behind overall, but if he paid all that was he supposed to in 2022, he can claim the child. If he didn't, you can claim the child. Remember: The parent not claiming the child needs to sign Form 8332 in order...View More
