Pima County Lawyers Helping Parents Settle Parenting Time And Visitation Issues
Child custody is otherwise known as “parenting time” in Arizona. Parenting time is an important part of the parenting plan orders that are entered in each case involving parents with children. In Arizona, parenting time becomes more of an issue when the child lives primarily with one parent, rather than the other, after a divorce, or after a breakup between a couple who is not married.
Our experienced Arizona family law attorneys at Ayala Law Office, P.C., will offer you well-rounded legal counsel so that you can determine what the best amount of parenting time should be for each parent. They will work with you to enter orders that best suit the dynamic situation of your family and which will ensure that your children will be protected. If warranted, they will ensure that both parents have frequent, meaningful contact with their children, especially those parents who lack residential custody of the child.
At our Tucson law office, we will work closely with you to understand the specific needs and challenges that you and your children have, so that everyone can move forward in a positive manner. If a consensus cannot be achieved, our family law attorneys will provide you with the strongest possible argument in court to ensure that the Judge has all of the information they need to enter proper orders as to parenting time, and so that everyone will have a positive path to move forward in their lives.
Offering Comprehensive Legal Counsel On Child Custody Matters
No matter how difficult and stressful your situation might be, our family law attorneys will provide you with the experienced guidance you need on all child custody and visitation issues. To help you determine what is best for you and your children, we will make sure that you understand your legal issues and the possible resolution of each of those issues, such as:
- Parenting time disputes and determinations — It’s important to keep a proper perspective during discussions about parenting time, as to who should have the children and why or why not. We will endeavor to understand each side’s point of view, and we will work to resolve the issues in the best interest of the children. When the court decides and enters orders as to the best interest of the child, the court will examine each parent’s health, mental stability and financial stability, and it will also look at their ability to meet their son’s or daughter’s physical and emotional needs.
- Visitation disputes — Whether you want to be the custodial parent of your children or your spouse or partner wants your child to live primarily with them, our firm will work diligently with you to understand the best parenting time to present to the other side or the court and we will work diligently to enter proper orders as to parenting time, in the best interest of the children. We will also work to make sure that the other side follows the orders that are agreed to or entered by the court. If the other side does not follow the orders that were entered, we will work to enforce the terms of the parenting plan orders, and we can also assist you to modify (or in the modification of) current orders, should circumstances warrant a change.
- Grandparents’ rights — Often, grandparents provide the best outside support for their grandchildren, especially when the parents of the children have gone through a breakup or have lost a home or a job. In situations where the parents of a child never married and the grandparent is being denied visits with their grandchildren, or where the parents have been divorced for at least three months and visits have ceased, a grandparent can petition the court to establish visitation orders with their grandchildren. Courts will look at a wide range of information and evidence in determining these cases, including the existing relationship between the grandparents and grandchildren and the dynamics of the relationship between the parents and the grandparents.
If you are a parent and you have been denied visitation or parenting time, if you are seeking visitation or parenting time with your child, or if you are a grandparent seeking visitation with your grandchildren, do not hesitate to contact our office. We will give you the comprehensive legal advice and support that you need in order to make sure that you can maintain a strong bond with your son or daughter or your grandchild. Our experience and excellent track record in this area, gives us the ability to identify issues that are sometimes overlooked, such as holiday time, telephone time and transportation arrangements. No matter what the custody issue, we will be there to make sure that your and your family’s rights are protected.
