She took the baby lied to file a restraining order against him so he can't see his baby. Can you please advise the best possible thing he can do to get his baby back?
Answer: In Arizona, custody of a child is based on the best interests of the child. Arizona family court looks at matters in list below to decide child custody:
• The parent and child's wishes
• The child's change to the different environments
• Any history of domestic violence or child abuse
• Who has delivered primary care of the child
• The mental and physical health of everyone involved
• A child's relationship with either parent
• A parent's desire to have a meaningful and generous relationship with the other parent In Arizona, a court may give parents either sole or joint custody.
According to best interest, an Arizona court may order joint legal custody and not order joint physical custody. A court will use the problems below to decide: • Views by the parents for joint custody agreement according to best interest • If a joint custody planning is possible • Each parent's ability to connect and unite with each other on custody Arizona court does not give custody or visitation to a parent when there is a big risk of danger to the child. Counseling sessions may be offered.
