AZ Child Custody and Support
Our family law attorneys are well versed in both child custody and child support matters. Even if parents can agree on joint parenting plan, it is advisable to have attorney representation as the courts will look to the best interests of the child, not the parents. In other cases, where abuse and neglect allegations may be made, it is vital to have legal representation. Our attorneys assist in finding experts for custody evaluations, work to ensure that the child is protected including supervised visitation and help a parent who has been wrongly accused. They are actively involved as parenting coordinator for Maricopa County Courts, working with Maricopa County Behavioral Health Board and domestic abuse shelters.
Our family law attorneys have represented hundreds of Arizona parents in child custody and support cases. Arizona law requires custodial and non-custodial parents to provide "reasonable support" for their minor children. This obligation is unavoidable and Arizona courts impose the "best interests" of the child standard during every step of a divorce or paternity proceeding. The court gives child support obligation priority over all other financial obligations of the parent. Our attorneys are intimately familiar with Arizona child support guidelines.
