Fathers' Child Custody Rights in Arizona
In Arizona, family law judges make decisions based on the best interests of the children affected by a divorce. Custody and visitation schedules are determined with the assumption that both fathers and mothers have a right to frequent and meaningful time with their children. This often leads to joint child custody arrangements.
Parenting time presumptions are subject to change when children are put at risk. If you are concerned about your child's well-being living with your former spouse, attorney John Bednarz will advocate to help you obtain primary custody. We have an extensive background helping modify parenting plans when former spouses are unfit parents based on serious factors threatening a child's safety, including:
- Domestic violence
- Child abuse
- Substance abuse addictions
If you were wrongfully accused of domestic violence, attorney Bednarz will respond quickly to the false claims. He will force the other side to try to prove their claims to help secure your rights as a parent. Mr. Bednarz also advocates for clients who struggled in the past with alcohol or drug addictions. He will demonstrate your commitment to regain your parenting rights through showing you took the right steps to get help in treatment programs.
