Child Custody and Visitation
You and your spouse won’t always agree on what’s best for your child when it comes to custody and visitation after a divorce. There are a variety of factors the court will consider when deciding a custody and visitation arrangement. An attorney can help make sure your family is on the best path forward.
One consideration a court will make is the personal preferences of the child. This will be looked at in addition to other aspects of the child’s time in the home, such as the relationship the child has with you and with their other parent. The child’s mental, physical, and social wellbeing will all be considered by the court. While the court is determining both the legal and physical custody on behalf of the child, one of our family law attorneys will be there to help you navigate the legal process and secure your child’s best interests.
Child Support and Modification
Child support is another common concern families face after a divorce. In Arizona, the non-custodial parent will have the legal obligation per the court to pay child support. The payments, on a schedule determined by a child support order issued by the court, begin as soon as the custodial parent has the order. If the non-custodial parent fails to make child support payments, you have options to enforce the order for those missed payments and get the financial assistance your child needs.
This is where the Department of Child Support Services may get involved and target multiple financial assets, credits, and other sources of income that the non-custodial parent has access to. A family law attorney who knows the process is well suited to appear before the court on behalf of your child and obtain an order to enforce the collection of those missed payments, even holding the non-custodial parent in contempt if necessary.
