Does the Court Favor Mothers over Fathers in Child Custody Cases in Arizona?
The law in Arizona prohibits a judge from favoring mothers over fathers in child custody cases in Arizona. Our experience has been that judges do not show a preference based upon the sex of either party.
Instead, the courts are fair to both parents but are primarily focused on what a particular judge believes to be in the best interests of the children. For more information on parental preferences in Arizona divorce cases, please read our article entitled “Do Courts Favor Mothers Over Fathers in Child Custody Cases”.
