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 at R.J. Peters and Associates taking what he had previously learned and applying it to the family law 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.

Legal Answers
16 Questions Answered
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.
Q. How long does it take to get divorced?
A: That is not easily answered as there are a number of reasons that a case can take time. The fastest you would be able to get a divorce is 60 days in Arizona as there is a statutory "cooling off" period, meaning a judge can't sign an order until 60 days after the other party is served. The reality is that some times even uncontested cases can be prolonged, but having the right attorney help out is a way to ensure that deadlines are not missed and your case is handled as expeditiously as possible. Most attorneys provide free consultations to discuss the details of the divorce process and address your particular questions.
