Child Custody Lawyer in Phoenix, AZ
Phoenix Child Custody Lawyer
Child custody is given to a parent who will be responsible for the care, maintenance, and control of a child following a divorce. In Arizona, the legal term is “legal decision making.” Arizona courts will determine which parent will be granted the legal decision-making over the child or children after a divorce.
The care of children continues, even though a marriage does not. Contact My AZ Family Law Lawyers if you are facing divorce and have concerns with the legal decision making for your child. You need to learn about your rights, your obligations, and you should know your options.
When making the determination of who should be awarded legal decision making authority over the children, the court will consider the best interest of the child. The court uses specific factors that are listed in the Arizona statute such as:
- The wishes of the children
- The relationship (past, present, and future) of child with the parent
- The physical and mental health of both parents
- The children’s need to adjust to home, school, and community
- Whether domestic or child abuse has occurred, as defined by AZ law
