Every Parent Wants Access To Their Child
Parenting Time (also called access, contact, residential time, or visitation) is a legal agreement by the divorcing couple, or unmarried co-parents, describing how the child will spend time with each parent respectively. Arizona courts want to see both parents taking a significant role in the child’s life whenever possible. But this goal of reasonable Parenting Time must meet the best interests of the child.
If the custodial parent can show that the child will be endangered or neglected by being with the noncustodial parent, it will be taken into consideration, perhaps leading to a status of supervised parenting time, where a third party will be present when the child is with the parent. This can occur when the noncustodial parent is known to abuse drugs or alcohol, to have committed or threatened to commit physical abuse to a family member or to be incapable of caring properly for the child.
