Seeking Solutions and Vigorously Defending Your Child Custody Rights
As an experienced family law attorney, Steven N. Cole understands the impact that a child custody dispute can have on a parent as well as a child. While he works diligently to explore creative solutions to disputed issues, he is aware of the fact that custody and visitation disputes will often end up contested in a family law trial or evidentiary hearing.
The elements of the Arizona Child Custody statute- A.R.S. 25-403, are relatively straightforward. Custody is decided by the best interests of the child, the mental health of the parties, who has fulfilled the role of primary caretaker, etc. Unfortunately, the statute doesn’t address the tactics that one needs to use in order to enjoy some success in a visitation or custody case in Arizona.
There are many issues that can give rise to a contested custody or visitation dispute, including parental relocation, disputes regarding education, discipline or religion, allegations of physical or sexual abuse, concerns about alcohol addiction or chemical dependency, parental alienation or lack of parental fitness.
