Answer: If a custodial agreement is in place, your daughter's father has parental rights. If there is a concern over abuse or some other legitimate issue, the courts may modify the custodial agreement. Please see the following website relating to information about custodial modification: http://www.superiorcourt.maricopa.gov/SuperiorCourt/FamilyCourt/postDecree.asp#n3  The following resources may be able to assist in filing the modification.
