It is incredibly important to establish the parentage of a child. Not only does this help the parents involved, but it is beneficial for the child as well. In Arizona, establishing the parentage of a child can be done by either voluntary acknowledgment of paternity or through genetic testing.
Arizona has specific laws that address custodial interference. Custodial interference is when one parent knowingly acts contrary to a parenting plan or against the legal rights of the child’s other parent or lawful custodian.
Child custody and visitation arrangements are among the most complex parts of any divorce case or legal separation. When the child involved is two years of age or under, making a child custody arrangement can seem an impossibility.
You should request a psychological evaluation in a child custody case if and when you suspect your spouse is suffering from an untreated mental health issue that could affect the overall health, safety, and well-being of your child or children.
