Child Support

If a mother leaves her 17-year-old in Michigan and moves to Arizona without signing emancipation or guardianship papers does she still have to pay for child support?

until the child reaches 18 years of age. yes, she does have to pay it. Every parent is responsible for the financial support of their minor child/children until they reach the legal age of majority or the age stipulated in the child support agreement. A parent can only be "forced" to pay child support by a court order, a minor cannot petition for child support themselves, but will need to be represented by an adult family member or a guardian ad litem appointed by the court.

There is no emancipation status in this state.

{| |- | No, you cannot. Arizona does not have an emancipation statute. This means you have to wait for the age of majority which is 18 in that state. |}

18 but you can apply for emancipation by the court at 16.

Arizona Sorry, there is no emancipation status in this state.

There are none. Arizona does not have a law for the emancipation of minors, which means you have to wait until you reach the age of majority, which is 18.

Arizona does not have an Emancipation statute. It does have a termination of parental rights, but that is initiated by the state for abuse and neglect by the parents. You'll have to wait until you turn 18.

You have to go through 4 states and parts of Texas to get from Michigan to Arizona.

You don't. There is no emancipation statute in Arizona.

It is about 2,007 miles from Michigan to Phoenix, Arizona if you travel via I-40 West. Mileage may vary depending on where you leave from in Michigan.

Arizona does not have an emancipation statute. You will have to wait until you become an adult. If you are not safe contact your local social services to get help.

USPO stamp rates are higher in 2014. To mail a letter to Arizona from Michigan costs one 48 cent stamp.

The air distance from Tucson, Arizona, to Michigan City, Indiana, is 1,475 miles. That equals 2,374 kilometers or 1,282 nautical miles.

Arizona Speeding Ticket You may want to refer to my other answer regarding out of state speeding tickets. Arizona and Michigan both belong to the driver's license compact. The ticket will be reported to Michigan and treated just as if you had received the speeding ticket in Michigan. You may want to check with the Michigan DMV. I believe they will remove the points if you state that the only reason you were found guilty is that you could not return to Arizona for court. However, the ticket will still stay on your record for insurance purposes. lwpat http://www.speedingticketcentral.com/ I don't think Michigan is a member of Drivers License comapct. It is not member of both DLC and NRVC(Non-Resident violaters compact). So , I believe Arizona cannot report your conviction to Michigan. Correct me if I 'm wrong??? You are wrong. AZ does report to Michigan.

There is no emancipation statute in Arizona. If you have your parents' permission, you can move out, but does not relieve them of their responsibility for your maintenance and welfare.

You have a license in Arizona. Having one from another state would be illegal.

About 2,040 miles according to MapQuest.

No. Being pregnant or having a child does not automatically confer emancipation status to a minor in Arizona.

No without jumping through a lot of hoops and negotiating with Michigan

It is 2,008.12 miles according to MapQuest.
