Aggressive Phoenix Step Parents Rights Lawyer Serving AZ
Chandler AZ Family Attorney for Custody or Visitation Rights in the Greater Phoenix Area
Step-parents are not immune from the pain of separation from a child. Many step-parents create significant emotional bonds over time with step children. You probably care for them as you do your own. In many divorce cases, the judge or your ex may not think about your rights as a step-parent. Your relationship with a step-child is just as important to you as it would be to a biological parent.
If the child’s biological parent is abusive or neglectful, the court will act in the child’s best interest. They may terminate the biological parent’s rights. Arizona law states that, if the child lives in an environment that would be detrimental to his or her emotional and physical well being, another adult may petition for legal custody.
Don’t let a divorce get in the way of your relationship with your step-child. Contact the law office of Steven N. Cole for experienced Chandler AZ family attorneys. We practice family law in the greater Phoenix area.
