Child Custody and Support

Preserving Your Children’s Future Wellbeing

Your greatest consideration during your divorce is your children. Where they will live, how they will split time between you and your ex-spouse, and the monthly support payments are all potentially explosive issues during the divorce process. 

While Arizona courts recognize that children benefit from having both parents involved in their lives, that is not always in their best interests – above all other factors, courts will look to the “best interests” of your children when deciding post-divorce accommodations. If one parent is mentally unfit or has committed domestic violence, extra care is taken to ensure that all parties are physically and emotionally safe after a divorce.

The state has child support guidelines on the books, which are important in determining the appropriate amount non-custodial parents should pay post-divorce. However, circumstances sometimes warrant a different amount than guidelines suggest.
