Determining Visitation Rights in Arizona

Preparing a visiting or parenting time agreement can be a complex matter in family law cases. If one parent does not receive custody of their child, they may still be entitled to visitation rights. Visitation is referred to as "parenting time" in Arizona because of the emphasis that this state places on parents maintaining a healthy relationship with their children.

The court will make many assumptions when deciding on a visitation arrangement, including:

  • The parents are fit to care for the child
  • Both parents desire to continue their relationship with the child
  • The parents are able to follow the parenting time plan
  • The parents can attempt to come to an agreement before resorting to involving the court
  • The visitation agreement is in the best interest of the child
  • The child requires the stability and consistency of both parents
  • The child will develop a strong relationship with both parents
  • The child will need open communication with both parents
