Custody, Parenting Time And Child Support Answers For Parents

Whenever children are involved, questions about where they'll live, how much time they'll spend with each parent, who will pay whom support and how much need to be asked and answered.

If divorcing parents can't reach a happy compromise on issues involving child custody — an Arizona Family Court judge will step in and make the decisions for them. When this happens, both parents are usually unhappy with the result. At the Law Office of Hector A. Montoya, P.L.L.C., we'll provide the honest advice and perspective you need in order to stay focused on what's important: the physical, emotional and psychological well-being of your kids.

Arizona Custody And Parenting Time Lawyer

Arizona law does not directly speak of "custody." Courts evaluate what is in the best interests of the children to award "legal decision-making" authority, which covers the important decisions in raising the child. Parents who share decision-making authority must consult with each other and come to an agreement on major decisions regarding religious upbringing, education, health care and other major issues. Parents may share decision-making responsibilities equally, or the court may opt to award one parent the decision-making authority. Parenting-time, on the other hand, is similar to the idea of the visitation schedule. The parenting plan will outline the parenting-time schedule.

Modifications After Divorce

Sometimes circumstances require that child custody, parenting time and child support orders be changed long after a divorce is "complete." Our firm can help you with these matters as well.
