|* ABOUT ME *|
For those of you who would like to know about myself & azDDS.
Although I am not an Arizona native, I have lived in the Tucson area for 45 years and love it here. I am a mom of two wonderful daughters, Erika - 33, who was married to Ryan Tornberg on August 14, 2004 and Jessika - 32 (both on their own) and a grandmother to a wonderful baby girl, Emily Anne who just turned 1 year old. With the help of my wonderful boyfriend and significant other of 18 years, Jody, I am able to continue my services through this business. My hobbies include Middle Eastern Dance, sewing and restoring "boudoir" or bed dolls from the 1920's - 1940's. (www.thedollieboudoir.com). I also put on the only TRUE Southern Arizona doll show, (www.tucsondollshow.com).
I have been completing documents for people since 1988. Effective July 1, 2003, the Arizona Supreme Court developed a certification for "Legal Document Preparers" which is what we now call ourselves. (Click Here for more information) I worked with Arizona Fathers and Parents Concerned for Children of Divorce from 1987 until 1991, as a membership consultant as well as political activist. I became an independent contract service provider for Linda Gruber at Divorce Packet Processing in February 1991. Although Linda and I continue to be partners in some regards I did open my azDDS office in November 1996 which was located at Campbell/Broadway. After several moves over the years, I am now at home at my current location on River Road. During the last 25years, I have personally completed over 7,200 cases and there hasn't been a challenge that I couldn't fix myself or with the help of others including Linda! (knock on wood!) I do have a personal interest in the Child Support Guidelines and have followed them from their conception in the late 1980's. I was also instrumental in the passing of the first child visitation (now called "parenting time") enforcement statue!
So there you have it!
