Celebrity custody battle offers lessons to Arizona parents

Once the partners to one of Hollywood's most powerful couples, Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt have since divorced and gone to war over how they will raise their six children. The pair has sparred over the important topic of child custody before, and recently, it has been announced that they will return to court in December to once again address how they will manage their responsibilities to their children.

When may supervised visitation be ordered?

For a parent who has been denied physical custody of their child, visitation rights is very important to ensure that they have opportunities to spend quality time with their child. Unlike custody, visitation does not give an Arizona parent the right to have their child live with them. Visitation does, however, ensure that a parent can see their child, though, restrictions may be placed on where and when their interactions may occur.

Can criminal charges affect a parent's child custody rights?

Our readers may be aware that when it comes to matters related to the custody of kids, the best interests of the children will generally guide legal proceedings. The "best interests" standard is subjective and allows courts to craft child custody arrangements that take into consideration the unique familial characteristics that may impact the welfare of the affected children. A number of considerations, including a parent's criminal record, may be reviewed when a child custody matter is being established or modified.

Child abduction by a parent is a serious legal issue

Child custody orders and agreements are rarely perfect. While in most cases Arizona families are able to work around the parameters of the custodial plans they are bound to follow, in some situations following a child custody arrangement can be downright frustrating. While parents should always seek legal assistance to find appropriate ways to either change or modify the terms of the agreements and orders that they must follow, some parents elect to take custodial matters into their own hands.

Can I move if I share physical custody of my child?

It is not uncommon for Arizona residents to change jobs over the course of their careers. In fact, some individuals may even change industries or occupational paths that take them on very different courses of life. When opportunities to make career moves come up it is often the case that the move will impact more than just the person seeking to make the switch.

Establishing house rules for children after a divorce

Children of parents in Phoenix who are going through a divorce have a lot to adjust to, and part of what they must come to terms with if their parents share custody is having two homes - one with one parent, one with the other. While each parent wants to see that their child is happy and thriving, they each might have different ideas about how to accomplish that. Therefore, it sometimes happens that the rules at one parent's house are not the same as the rules at the other parent's house.

Helping you develop a workable child custody plan

No family is perfect. While some Arizona parents can deal with the natural ups and downs of a marriage, this is not always the case when disputes get hostile and frequent. In these matters, it is often best for everyone involved to end the marriage. While it is no easy feat to initiate a divorce, it can be the best decision for spouses and even their children.

Nesting child custody agreements

Divorce may be a particularly difficult time for children in Arizona. Spending time at two homes and having two separate bedrooms or belongings sometimes adds to the child's trauma. New child custody arrangements, however, have allowed the children to remain in the family home, because their parents take turns moving in and out.
