Answer: Under Arizona law, the answer very much depends on multiple factors: whether the parents were married and now divorced, whether the parents have joint custody, and whether there is a specific custody agreement. If the custody agreement is governed by Arizona law, a court may modify the agreement if it interferes with one parent's visitation rights. If there is a threat to the safety of the children or an ex-spouse, please visit the Arizona Judicial Branch's website concerning Domestic Violence Law: http://www.azcourts.gov/domesticviolencelaw/DomesticViolenceInformation.aspx A lawyer may be needed in cases such as these. A lawyer can be found at a reduced rate by going to: http://azlawhelp.org/legalaidlisting.cfm. Keep in mind these lawyers are typically only able to help Arizona residents, but they may aid in finding a lawyer out of state.
