Answer: Decisions about child custody are determined by the court based on the facts before the court and what is in the best interest of the child. This website cannot determine what a specific court will decide. The following is general information on child custody in Arizona: Title 25 of the Arizona Revised Statutes (A.R.S.) contains laws dealing with domestic and marital relations. Chapter 4, Article 1 contains laws dealing with child custody (beginning with A.R.S. § 25-401 (http://www.azleg.gov/FormatDocument.asp?inDoc=/ars/25/00401.htm&Title=25&DocType=ARS)). A.R.S. § 25-403 (http://www.azleg.gov/FormatDocument.asp?inDoc=/ars/25/00403.htm&Title=25&DocType=ARS) contains factors that the court considers when looking at what is in the best interest of the child. A.R.S. § 25-403.03 (http://www.azleg.gov/FormatDocument.asp?inDoc=/ars/25/00403-03.htm&Title=25&DocType=ARS) discusses the court’s considerations in a domestic violence situation. Depending on where you live in Arizona, there are various services available to assist individuals who cannot afford an attorney.

Some of the family courts (http://www.azcourts.gov/AZCourts/AZCourtsLocator.aspx) provide self service centers or lists of attorneys who can assist a person with completing forms. To find out how the law applies to a specific situation, contact an attorney directly.
