Biography

Peter Davis was born and raised in Kansas City. He is a graduate of the University of Kansas and a proud Jayhawk. He moved to Arizona in 2006 to be closer to his wife’s family. In 2008 he again moved his family, this time to Houston to attend law school at the University of Houston

Upon Graduation from law school in 2011 Peter immediately moved back to Arizona and began working for a prominent law firm representing clients obtain Social Security Disability. In 2016 and 2017 he was Rated 10 Best in Arizona for exceptional and outstanding client service in the Social Security Section by the American Institute of Legal Counsel.

After almost 7 years successfully representing clients in disability cases, Peter became an Assistant Attorney General and represented the State of Arizona in IV-D Child Support cases. During that time he appeared in hundreds of evidentiary hearings on behalf of the State.

While Peter learned much from his time as an Assistant Attorney General, he missed advocating for an individual and moved back in to private practice in the area of Family Law, taking what he had previously learned and applying it to this area of practice.

Peter is a father of four children and spends his off time with his wife and children doing outdoor activities, sports and board games.

17 Questions Answered
Q. The father of my son is on the birth certificate we never been married what right does he have when it comes to custody
A: In Arizona, the fact that he is on the birth certificate means that paternity has been legally established under the law. Generally speaking, This does give him some rights, however rights for parenting time and legal decision making still reside with Mother as the defacto custodian of the child. Any time he wants with the child is at your discretion for now. He does, however, have the right to school records, medical records, and other information similar about the child. He also has the right to petition the Court to obtain an order for parenting time and legal decision making access other than what he is being allowed. This is a very complex question with a lot of caveats and unknown information that could impact the answer in your particular case. Please contact an attorney for a more complete answer. Most attorneys who practice in this area will give you a free 30 minute consultation.
Q. Ex has filed to change child support if I inherited a house will it affect the amount I pay? 50/50 custody in Az
A: The answer is "it depends" while child support in Arizona is generally based upon earnings from a job, there are instances where child support may be ordered based upon resources. Further, if you receive income from this house (such as rental income) it may also be countable (even in addition to your income from wages). However, if you intend to reside in this house as your primary residence it is unlikely that it will be counted in the calculation. There are many factors that can go into the determination of what impacts your child support amount. Most firms offer a free 30 minute legal consultation for issues such as this one. I recommend speaking with a knowledgeable attorney regarding the details of a possible modification of child support.
Q. My child is 17 moved out and is demanding her child support go to her directly.
A: Arizona child support does not belong to the child. It is not her right to receive it, though the other party could potentially file a modification to change or reduce it. Further, in certain cases where the State is involved, if the child is out of the house the child support paid can be re-directed to the individual who is watching her. There are several factors to this, and most attorneys provide a free consultation to discuss these.
