Arizona Child Custody Attorney

Whether custody stems from a divorce situation or paternity case, Arizona has very specific laws covering child custody. Even in an uncontested divorce, where parents agree to joint custody, it is a good idea to seek the advice of an attorney because the court may still adjust the custody arraignment if it feels the Joint Parenting Plan is not serving the children’s best interests. A court approved plan will take the following factors into account:

  • Where the child lives
  • Distance between the parents homes
  • Visitation schedule
  • Parents work schedules

While those factors are common to all custody arraignments the court will also take extenuating circumstances into account. An experienced family law attorney from our firm will be able to help you determine what the court may and may not consider applicable in your case. The court will suggest a mediation hearing where both sides meet to develop an acceptable plan that will gain the court’s approval. Child custody mediation hearings, especially in the case of contested divorce, do not always end in a satisfactory way for both sides. This will lead to a jury trial in which the rights of you and your children will be defended by our highly experienced and aggressive litigators.
