Question: Does my daughter have to have her own room? My ex boyfriend kicked us out and now wants custody of my daughter because we share a bed at my grandma's home
Answer: Courts are concerned with the best interests of the child when custody is at issue. Factors the court will consider in determining the best interests of a child are listed under A.R.S. § 25-403. The statute does not list any requirements for living arrangements; rather, it focuses on how well a child is adjusted to the home and looks at the relationship between the parent and the child. If the children are well adjusted to the living arrangements, it is probably a non-issue. However, you may want to consult an attorney to advise you further if you feel your custody of the children will be challenged.
