Understanding Child Custody Agreements in Arizona

While preferring joint custody and a continuing meaningful relationship with both parents whenever possible, Arizona courts recognize two forms of custody.

These Forms Include:

  • Physical custody - where and with whom the child mainly lives
  • Legal custody - the right to make major decisions about a child’s life, such as his or her education, medical treatment, or religious upbringing

Thus, in joint legal custody both parents have the right to make major decisions. In sole physical custody, the child would live with one parent while the noncustodial parent could have visitation rights. In joint physical and legal custody, the child would alternate his or her time between both parents’ homes who both have the right to make major decisions.

Factors Influencing Child Custody Decisions in Arizona

Arizona courts (ARS § 25-403) base child custody decisions on what is in the best interests of the child, which is usually seen as both parents participating in the child’s life. In cases where a parent has a history of substance abuse, family abuse, or some other type of negative behavior, that parent would generally be seen as unfit for custody. 

Key Considerations for Child Custody Cases in Arizona

  • The relationship that the parent and child have (this can include their relationship in the past, their current relationship, or what a future relationship would look like)
  • How the child interacts with their siblings and parents
  • How the child is adjusting to their school or home life
  • The health, both mentally and physically, of the child and the parents
  • If one parent has a higher possibility of supporting the child’s relationship with their other parent

The court will also take into consideration what the wishes of the child are, as long as that child is old enough to provide such information.
