Common Questions About Custody and Divorce
Going through a divorce is difficult enough, but when children are involved, we know that you have other concerns. Many questions must be answered in custody cases involving divorce, including:
- What will happen to the children?
- Will there be joint or sole custody?
- How will parenting time be divided?
- What are the visitation rights?
We have handled custody matters since we started our firm. We also handle other aspects of divorce as well, including division of marital property and spousal support/alimony. To better understand the components of a custody dispute in divorce, contact us so we can sit down and explain it to you.
In every divorce and paternity matter where custody is involved, the state of Arizona requires parents to attend a Parent Information Program class. Information on classes is available by visiting the Arizona Supreme Court's page. You can also find information about the model parenting time plan on the state court's site as well.
The Importance of Paternity
Where there is no establishment of paternity and no agreement of the parties, a paternity test may have to be taken. If no legal rights have been established, and your name is not on the birth certificate, you may have difficulty retaining your rights as the father of your child. You need to get an attorney involved early to protect those rights.
