Arizona couples can spend a lot of time trying to make their relationship work for the sake of their children. However, in some cases the relationship is just beyond repair and couples are just better off apart. When couples consider divorce, there can be a common misconception that the woman will automatically get the children and the majority of the couple's assets. In today's society though, this is not necessarily true. Arizona law gives protections to both spouses and child custody is awarded after a consideration of the best interests of the child.
While men are afforded protections under the law, they need to exercise their rights in order to receive them. This means that men -- and fathers in particular -- need to aggressively fight for what they are entitled to. Our firm understands that some fathers can face an uphill battle in court.
When you are facing this situation, our firm can help you understand these rights. We have the experience necessary to help fathers get primary custody over their children, particularity in situations where child abuse, substance abuse or domestic violence have played a role in the parents' divorce or breakup. Our firm can help you fight false allegations of abuse and show that it is in the children's best interest for you to have custody.
