Protecting the Best Interest of the Child

Courts will often look at:​
  • Child’s age and sex
  • Mental and physical health of the child AND parent
  • Parent’s lifestyle
  • How the new custody arrangement will affect the child’s current life
  • Whether the parent will be able to provide for the children
Types of Child Custody​:

LEGAL CUSTODY – The custodial parent can make decisions regarding the child’s healthcare, schooling, religious upbringing, and more.
JOINT CUSTODY – Both parents agree to work together to make sure the child’s new adjustment is as stress free as possible. Courts will require drafting of a Parenting Plan to demonstrate how the child’s time will be split between the homes.
SOLE CUSTODY – Arizona courts will award sole custody to a parent if there is substantial evidence that the other parent is unfit including use of drugs or alcohol.

A Parenting Plan must generally include:

  • How the child will receive healthcare
  • The child’s living arrangements
  • An education plan
  • Religious upbringing and a way to resolve disputes
