Child Custody Lawyers in Mesa, Arizona

Types of Child Custody Attorneys

All child custody cases are decided on the basis of what is in the best interest of the child. In Arizona, the word “custody” is hardly used anymore, the terms “Legal Decision-Making” and “Parenting Time” have become the legal terms.

What is Parenting Time?

  • Parenting Time is the schedule set forth by the court that determines when and how much time is spent with the child. Parenting time is determined through a Parenting Plan. When parents are able to cooperate, they can create a parenting plan based on their needs and wants as parents. However, this isn’t always the case and sometimes involving the courts is your only option. 

What is Legal Decision-Making?

  • Legal Decision-Making is the right as a parent to make significant non-emergency decisions for your child. Some examples might include education, religion, health care and extra curricular activities. Arizona courts allow for either joint legal decision-making or sole legal decision-making.

When a family court is going to make a determination in a custody case, it reviews several pieces of information. Some determining factors could be:

  • Your child’s wishes
  • The physical and mental health of both parties
  • Whether domestic violence has occurred
  • The financial ability to provide for the child

The ability to make the most important decisions in your child’s life is your right and responsibility as a parent.  You have your child’s best interest in mind, and when the other party is unwilling to cooperate or may be an unfit parent, the child custody process can be overwhelming and difficult to navigate on your own.
