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 based on the assumption that both fathers and mothers have a right to frequent and meaningful time with their children. Joint child custody arrangements are usually ordered unless a parent poses a credible threat to a child’s safety.
If you have genuine concerns, we have experience helping parents obtain sole custody or to modify parenting plans when former spouses create a serious threat to a child’s safety. This typically involves:
If you were wrongfully accused of domestic violence, we will respond quickly to the false allegations and will force the other side to try to prove their claims. Mr. Bednarz also represents clients who have struggled in the past with alcohol or drug addictions. He will demonstrate your commitment to regain your parenting rights by showing you took the right steps to get help in treatment programs.
