Phoenix Complex Custody Lawyer

The most difficult aspect of a divorce or separation for many parents is the issue of child custody and visitation. Complex custody issues can come about for a number of reasons:

  • One parent or both have irregular work schedules. One may be a pilot or a surgeon, for example, and have difficulty agreeing to a consistent parenting plan for sharing custody or seeing children regularly through a visitation agreement.
  • One parent or both may be accused of subjecting children to child endangerment scenarios because of drugs or alcohol or criminal activity.
  • A grandparent or other non-parent may have a strong nurturing bond with the children.
  • Parents may live far apart. One may live in another state, in Mexico, in Canada or in another country.
  • Parents may be unmarried.
  • Custody may be contested by the two parents and/or a grandparent or other care-giving adult in the children's lives.
  • One parent may be in the military in Afghanistan or some other faraway location - and may want to ensure access to the children while on furlough, or may want other family members to care for children during what would be that parent's allotted visitation or shared custody time.
