In Arizona, mothers are allowed to seek custody rights over their children. If the mother is married or unmarried, the ability to secure custody rights is the same. Recently, the State of Arizona has changed their custody guidelines to allow for more fathers to seek equal rights with mothers. Previously, mothers were typically given the ‘benefit of the doubt’ or given default custody rights by the court. If you are seeking mothers rights, it is now more important to hire an attorney to help you with your case.
Custody Rights for Mothers
After you have gone through a painful divorce and the child custody issues have been resolved, you hope that you can move on with your life, but that is not always the case. If the Mother has the children the majority of the time, she will receive a reasonable amount of child support to raise the children. Most people know someone who has had trouble collecting child support. If your ex has not been paying you the amount of money that the court ordered, you do not have to sit by and do nothing. Our Family Law Attorneys can get the courts to enforce their order. This will be done by garnishing your ex-partners wages and having the child support payments automatically deposited into your bank account.
Custody Rights for Single Mothers
Single mothers and unmarried mothers have the same legal rights to child custody as married mothers. It may be slightly easier for an unmarried mother to secure custody rights if the birth father has been absent or not contributing to the life of the child. The outcome of each case certainly depends on the circumstances. These days the courts do not always side with the Mother when it comes to custody. With that in mind, it is imperative that you talk with one of our aggressive Custody lawyers who will advise you of your legal rights under the law. In order to gain custody, the Father of your child will sometimes make untrue allegations in court. If you do not have an effective team to fight those allegations, you could lose custody of your child or children.
