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.

State courts conflicted on same-sex parents

Arizona child custody disputes are often complex and may be more difficult when they involve the rights of same-sex couples. State courts are reviewing an Arizona law granting parental rights to a male father and presuming that the male was the biological parent if the couple was married with 10 months of the child's birth.

Arizona Supreme Court reviews rights same-sex parental rights

The U.S. Supreme Court's ruling validating same-sex marriages did not resolve many family law issues such as child custody. The Arizona Supreme Court, for example, recently heard arguments over whether a gay woman undergoing divorce has the same parenthood rights as a man when the child was born during the couple's marriage.

'Virtual visitation' may augment a child custody order

Technology has grown at an outstanding rate over the past decade or so. These days, people in Arizona send emails, chat on Skype, post on Facebook and have their cellphones on them wherever they go so they can make a phone call or send a text whenever they need to. These advances in technology affect nearly every aspect of our lives, including child custody and visitation.
