Question: I have just moved to AZ and the father of my children lives in ca we have no former custody done. Can I file for full custody?
Answer: Although the question does not specify whether you are currently married to the father of your children or whether his name appears on the birth certificate, the short answer is that you can file for full custody. If you are an Arizona resident, you have the right to file a petition for the determination of custody in the Arizona Superior Court. Check the website for Superior Court of Arizona, www.superiorcourt.maricopa.gov and click on “I want to . . . prepare court documents.” Then, select “Family Court.” You will find forms and instructions on the website. Be aware that you will need to serve papers on the father and that he has the right to contest your petition for custody. Although it is possible to handle this on your own, your best bet is to contact a lawyer for help.
