7. Joint Custody IS The Norm

(Last Updated On: October 20, 2018)

While there is a growing presumption in favor of joint custody and/or physical custody over the parties’ child(ren), no such presumption has yet been codified by the Arizona legislature.

Joint custody may be granted if both parents agree — by submitting a parenting plan — and the order is in the child(ren)’s best interest(s).

Evidence of domestic violence and/or drug/alcohol abuse are factors that may be considered as contrary to the best interests of the child(ren).

Again, only a properly trained and experienced family law lawyer can help guide you in this area.
