Some General Guidelines for Determining Child Support

Arizona courts follow the Arizona Child Support Guidelines (the “Guidelines”). The information below, from the Guidelines, only addresses a few of the issues that can arise when determining a parent’s child support obligation.

Child support obligations take priority over all other financial obligations. In certain circumstances (such as the parties’ agreement), courts can deviate from the Guidelines when ordering a parent to pay child support. Continue reading

Miller Trusts

Holiday Food Drive for Foothills Food Bank

Once again The Carroll Law Firm is collecting food for local families in need this holiday season. Most of us look forward to the holiday season, a time of gift-giving, delicious family meals and warm memories. However, for some less fortunate residents of our community, the holidays are a stressful time, with money concerns often taking over the brightness of the season.

In an effort to give back to our community, The Carroll Law Firm is hosting a food drive, collecting canned and non-perishable food items now through December 20, 2012. We will be donating these items to Foothills Food Bank, which serves families of the North Valley. There will be a collection box at our Anthem office for you to drop off the food items. Please spread the word and encourage everyone to participate. We want to make sure that every family in our community has food on its table this holiday season.We are open weekdays from 8:30am-5pm. Feel free to drop food off as a donation any time (no appointment necessary).

All donations are welcome, but this December Foothills Food Bank specifically requests help with the following items:

Soup; Crackers; Pasta Sauce; Canned Tuna; Mac & Cheese; Canned Pastas; Canned Vegetables; Pasta and Rice Sides; Sugar, Flour, Tea, Coffee; Peanut Butter and Jelly; Dried Beans and Canned Beans; Diapers (Size: N, 1, 2, 6).

Our address:

Thank you for helping us give back to the Anthem Community this holiday!

Hiring an Attorney for Traffic Violations

Depending on the severity of a traffic violation, it can be wise to consult with an attorney regarding the violation so that you can have a better understanding of your case and your violation and representation in court. Violations range from local to federal level statutes and minor infractions in terms of these violations can cost you from around $100 to $200 and a few points on your driving record. In instances like these, it may not be worth it to spend the money for an attorney.

However, in instances of major and criminal infractions, hiring an attorney is well worth it when your license may be revoked and an extended period of time without being able to drive could cost you more. Continue reading
