Arizona Child Custody Essentials is for parents with a child custody matter coming before the Arizona family court. Child custody matters are raised in divorce, legal separation, annulment, paternity establishment, and in post-decree modifications for child relocation and move-aways. Because the outcome of every custody decision could impact the child's welfare and happiness, this book is used to help prepare parties for the legal proceedings ahead. Attorney Scott David Stewart demystifies custody to help parents build a solid foundation for their child's future by getting a feel for the child custody process under Arizona law. The author introduces the reader to child custody proceedings in Arizona, the court's jurisdiction over the child, the judge's responsibilities, authority, and discretion in the case, and the importance of the best interests of the child standard. Stewart includes tips on what to look for in an Arizona child custody lawyer and how attorney's fees are awarded; devotes a chapter to the special concerns of unmarried parents; explains key child custody concepts such as legal decision-making, parenting time, and visitation; describes how child custody evaluators, mediators, and parenting coordinators assist in the case; introduces the need for a parenting plan and the strategies for obtaining desired custody arrangements; includes a discussion of child support orders and how child custody orders are modified; and discusses the impact domestic violence, child abuse, and child neglect can have on the case.
