Parental Visitation Rights in Arizona are protected through a number of legal statutes. Arizona law dictates that parents have the right to visit and maintain a relationship with their child or children regardless of the type of custody agreement the parent is given through the court system. Noncustodial parents retain visitation rights in Arizona.
Additionally, the state of Arizona details specific criteria for visitation in joint custody arrangements. The guidelines are detailed in the Superior Court of Arizona in Maricopa County Parenting Time Guidelines.
The following are commonly asked questions regarding parental visitation:
- If I don’t have joint custody, will I still have visitation rights?
- If my spouse and I are separated, do I have visitation rights?
- If I cannot make child support payments, do I have visitation rights?
- How does sole custody affect the noncustodial parent?
- If my spouse has sole custody, can he or she refuse to let me see my child?
- If my spouse has sole custody, can he or she send my child away for vacations and holidays?
- If my spouse has sole custody, can he or she move away with my child?
