Let an attorney handle this for you

While it may seem like an easy process to set up visitation and parenting time, this is rarely the case. There are many factors that go into how visitation and parenting time is calculated, and much of this will depend on how custody arrangements are finalized in the divorced or separation. Your attorney will:

  • Ensure that you understand all Arizona laws regarding visitation and parenting time.
  • Defend your rights to parenting time or establish why you object to the other parent’s visitation.
  • Go to court to defend your rights.

How is visitation and parenting time decided?

In most situations, non-custodial parents are entitled to visitation and parenting time with their children. When there are minor children, each parent in a divorce or separation will be required to complete a class called the “Parent Information Program.” This program is mandatory and is designed to explain the impact the divorce and lifestyle changes can have on children. If a parent fails to attend this program, they can be denied custody rights or visitation.

There are various factors that determine a parent’s visitation and parenting time rights, including:

  • Both parents’ ability to care for their child
  • The parents’ desire to have a relationship with the child
  • Whether the parents are able to follow the finalized parenting plan
  • Whether the visitation agreement is in the child’s best interest

In some circumstances:

  • grandparents may also gain visitation rights
  • modifications to existing visitation rights may need to be made
  • a father’s paternity may need to be established to obtain visitation rights
