Question: When the non-custodial parent has parenting time is the custodial parent allowed to request parenting time during that time? For example winter and summer Vacation that are one to three weeks long?
Answer: AZLawHelp has a useful article explaining custody and parenting time that can be accessed here. http://www.azlawhelp.org/articles_info.cfm?mc=1&sc=11&articleid=68 Arizona policy favors parenting time arrangements that have been agreed upon by the parents themselves. “Parents are free to agree on the best parenting time plan for their child. If parents cannot agree, or if their agreement is not working, court action may be necessary. Remember, only the Superior Court can decide parenting time matters and issue an order that can be enforced if disagreements arise or if one parent does not honor the parenting time schedule.” Things You Should Know About Custody and Parenting Time, http://www.azlawhelp.org/articles_info.cfm?mc=1&sc=11&articleid=68 Whether or not one parent has violated the other parent’s parenting time rights can only be determined based on an existing court order establishing a parenting time schedule. If a dispute cannot be resolved by the parents themselves, then the courts will decide the matter. For more information relating to custody and parenting time rights, see A.R.S. 25-401 through 25-415. http://www.azleg.gov/ArizonaRevisedStatutes.asp?Title=25
