Parenting a child in Arizona can be very difficult. It can be even more difficult if the parents are no longer together and do not always agree as to what is best for the child. That is partly why there are child custody orders when parents are no longer together. Child custody orders determine whether one parent or both parents should be making the decisions regarding the child. Child custody cases also make determinations as to when each parent will have parenting time with the child, which includes schedules for holidays and school vacations.
After the determinations are made, the parents must follow through with the order. There are a number of logistical aspects that must be worked out for this to happen. That is why the parents must either agree to a parenting plan or have the court make a decision for them in the best interests of the child.
