When you contact an experienced family law attorney, we will explain how an Arizona family law court regards child custody disputes. Aggressively attacking one parent and being uncompromising in negotiations are not typically the way to you and your family’s best interests. Family court judges want to see parents working together to achieve what is best for the children. Typically, a judge will resolve disputes by requiring full participation and cooperation of both parents in creating a parenting plan. See the Model Parenting Plans for the type of agreement you will be expected to consider. The details and logistics will be crucial in family law court; maintaining a cordial relationship between parents will be essential to develop the parenting plan. This can be facilitated by the right child custody attorney.

With Scottsdale child custody lawyer, John C. Belt working with you, you will get a clear understanding of the best way to negotiate your Arizona divorce. Developing a fair and useful parenting plan through calm discussion, gentle compromise and honest agreement can occur. In some cases, however, it will be necessary to take a child visitation or custody dispute to court: a history of violence, substance abuse, or other issue that questions a parent’s fitness may require additional negotiations.
