Question: how old does the minor have to be to choose to stop vistation in arizona
Answer: Under Arizona law there is no specific age at which a minor is able to discontinue visitation, typically the visitation under a joint custody agreement will continue until the minor reaches 18 years of age. However, if the reason that the minor wishes to stop visitation is due to endangerment of the minor a lawyer may be appointed and a petition to the court made in order to stop visitation. Some joint custody agreements have a portion which directs on how to change the visitation schedule through the court, but a minor may not simply stop visitation once they reach a certain age. Please see A.R.S. § 25-403 for reference.
