When your child custody order was finalized in an Arizona family court, you and your ex-spouse or former domestic partner may have been bound to follow a parenting plan. The two of you may have crafted it together or a judge may have ordered you to follow a parenting plan similar to one of these typical schemes:
- Three periods of three to five hours spaced throughout the week for the non-custodial parent
- Two periods of four to six hours a week for the non-custodial parent
- Two three to five-hour periods plus one eight-hour weekend day each week for the non-custodial parent
- One period of three to six hours and two non‐consecutive overnights each week with the non-custodial parent
- An equal parenting time schedule where the child is not away from either parent for more than two consecutive days
These are a few of the many possible parenting plans that are contained in typical child custody orders. Establishing the plan was one hurdle. Getting the plan approved by the family law court was another hurdle. Now, perhaps, a new hurdle has emerged. One parent may be failing to exercise his or her visitation time on schedule. The custodial parent may be preventing access to the other parent through countless excuses and special circumstances.
