Fathers Rights in Arizona (Ultimate Guide for 2019)

The custody laws in Arizona now recognize the equal rights of fathers during a separation and divorce.  Mothers no longer receive favorable treatment over Fathers in custody cases, whether married or not.  As of January 1, 2013, both Mother and Father are now viewed as equals in the eyes of the law and either may qualify for primary custody of a child. The previous laws were viewed as harmful to a father’s legal rights to a child as there was a presumption of custody towards the mother.

The law places a duty on Father and Mother alike with legally protected parenting rights and responsibilities.  The same laws apply to soon-to-be Fathers and Mothers.  These rights and responsibilities may include:

      • parenting time of child or children
      • child custody
      • adoption notification
      • child support

Fathers Custody Rights in Arizona

Fathers, soon-to-be Fathers, and Unmarried Fathers are as entitled to these legal rights pertaining to children, as are Mothers.  If you are a Father or soon-to-be one and have concerns about your legal rights and responsibilities in fatherhood, contact our office for a free consultation and legal expertise to protect your parenting rights. Those parenting rights include a Father’s visitation rights as well as custody rights afforded them in Arizona. It is important that even unmarried fathers remember that they have custody and visitation rights in Arizona.

Family laws applied in the Phoenix metro area (Chandler, Gilbert, Glendale, Mesa, Peoria, Tempe, Scottsdale, Surprise etc.) and throughout the State of Arizona may pose challenges to Fathers seeking to protect their parenting rights, or gain joint child custody. The Cantor Law Group Attorneys are knowledgeable on the obstacles faced by Fathers, such as:

  • parental alienation when partners or spouses may attempt to reduce a fathers’ rights to child access and parenting time
  • prior divorce settlement instruction resulting in excessive spouse alimony/support and/or child support payments

Our team of attorneys has had a lot of success in obtaining child custody for Fathers and also having previous divorce settlement agreements legally modified to give Fathers fair treatment.  If you have questions about fathers rights in divorce proceedings, or simply want to protect your visitation rights, then please contact us for a free consultation about your situation.
