Arizona Courts courts strive to make shared parenting the goal in any final arrangement. Courts will no longer decide on physical custody and child visitation but will work to create essentially parenting time.
Rules and Quick Facts:
To obtain a divorce in Arizona, one or both of the parties must have maintained a domicile in Arizona for at least ninety (90) days prior to the filing of a Petition for Dissolution/Divorce. (Jurisdiction)
The Arizona legislature has passed a new law in 2013 that forbids judges from basing parent preference solely on the parent or child's gender.
