Being a member of the armed services can make family life challenging. When services members' marriages end in divorce, relocations and deployments can make child custody and visitation a bear to figure out. Thankfully, Arizona and other states allow for the inclusion of virtual visitation in parenting plans.
Family is at the heart of what many Arizona residents consider to be most important. Some families consist of mom, dad, brother and sister; other families may only have one parent, more siblings or no siblings. Then, there are those who long to have a family. Unfortunately, many of those longing for a family are children who are a part of the family law and foster care system or are couples unable to have children of their own. In both of these cases, adoption can be the life-changing.
Divorce is thought to be on the decline in Arizona and the rest of the country. There is something fairly new in the divorce landscape that is catching on especially when there are children involved. Mediated divorce is thought to be a less contentious approach and can be particularly helpful to setting up joint parenting arrangements.
