Legal Decision Making (Custody)

Legal Decision Making (Custody)     Custody paralegal

Custody as it was formerly known is now referred to as Legal decision making. The issue of who makes legal decisions for the children is a sensitive area of family law and the court always treads carefully when considering the best interests of children.  Whether establishing legal decision making (custody) or modifying child custody or even terminating the parental rights of a child, the standard of proof that the court always considers is whatever is in the child’s best interest.

Establishing or Modifying Legal Decision Making (Child Custody)

There are several ways to establish legal decision making (child custody) in Arizona. The most common cases for establishing child custody are through a dissolution of marriage or through a paternity action.  Both a Petition for Dissolution of Marriage (Divorce) and Complaint for Paternity, for parents who are not married, may include a request to award one or both of the parents the ability to make legal decisions for the children such as health decisions, educational decisions, religious decisions and personal care decisions. Both parents are awarded parenting time not just one of the parents.  The standard in Arizona now is that both parents should be awarded equal parenting time unless it is proven that it would be in the children’s best interests not to award equal parenting time.

What if the parents are married but not living together? If the parents have been separated for a long time, one of the parents may file a Petition to establish legal decision making (custody), parenting time and child support.

If the parents were never married and one of the parents applies for AHCCCS, food stamps etc., the State of Arizona, Department of Economic Security will ask for information on the other parent for the purposes of establishing paternity in order to obtain child support from the other parent.  The State of Arizona is not interested in the legal decision making (custody) or parenting time issues that may have not been ordered between the parents and as such they will file the Complaint for Paternity and ask that the issues of custody and parenting time remain unadjudicated.  The parents may then file a Petition to Establish Custody and Parenting Time separately.

MODIFYING LEGAL DECISION MAKING (CHILD CUSTODY)

Do you already have a child custody order in Arizona? If there was an order regarding the issue of child custody entered either in a Dissolution of Marriage or through a Paternity action and one of the parents wants to change legal custody, then there are several factors that are considered before even granting a hearing to modify child custody.  Changing the legal custody of a child is considered to be a huge impact on the life of a child and therefore a hearing is not granted unless adequate cause has been shown to grant the hearing.  According to the Arizona Rules of Family Law Procedure, the court considers the wishes of the child, wishes of the parents, whether or not the parents have attended the mandatory parent education class, the mental and physical health of all parties involved, whether the child has adjusted to his or her surroundings, whether joint custody is logistically possible, who is more likely to encourage frequent and meaningful contact and many other factors relating to the child’s best interests.  The easiest way to modify child custody is when both parents agree to it.  Absent an agreement, a child custody order is difficult to change once ordered.

Arizona Paralegal for Child Support Calculations

CHILD SUPPORT PARALEGALS IN ARIZONA

When looking for an Arizona Paralegal to assist you with child support calculation, modifications or terminations be sure that the paralegal is familiar with the issues that are taken into consideration when determining child support.

Factors for determination of Child Support

The issues of importance when determining child support include the gross incomes of each parent, whether a parent is paying spousal maintenance or receiving spousal maintenance, whether either parent is supporting another child not common to the parties, insurance premiums that are paid for the child, parenting days exercised by the non-custodial parent, day care expenses paid by a parent on behalf of the child in common to the parties, expenses paid by a parent of an extraordinary child, and educational expenses paid on behalf of an extraordinary child.

ARIZONA CHILD SUPPORT CALCULATOR

A free Arizona Child Support Calculator is available online and even creates the Parent’s Worksheet for you.  The information entered in the child support calculator is pooled together and listed on a Parent’s Worksheet.  The Parent’s Worksheet combines the two parents’ incomes together to get a total income and then cross referenced with a pre-determined chart of child support amounts.  A total child support amount is determined to be the amount required to care for the child in question given all of the above factors.  This total child support amount is divided between the two parents based upon their percentage of incomes.  This percentage is not necessarily equal because the parents may have unequal incomes. The non-custodial parent pays the child support amount calculated to the custodial parent per month broken down by pay periods.  In other words, a parent who pays $400 per month in child support and is paid bi-monthly would pay $200 per paycheck.

How fast can I modify child custody in Arizona?

Modifying an Arizona child custody order isn’t an easy process. In fact, most family law judges are very cautious and hesitant to change
a custody arrangement. I’ve found that what is more common to parents is that they want either more or less parenting time. The
process to modify parenting time takes about 4 to 5 weeks before the hearing takes place in Pima County. The process to modify custody
could take between 2 and 4 months. A hearing to modify custody may not even be scheduled unless the judge feels that adequate
cause exists to modify it. For more information visit our website. www.tucsondivorceparalegal.com. (520) 327-4000
