What Determines Child Custody in Arizona

Child custody is determined in Arizona by a judge appointed to the Superior Court of the county in which you live. The court is required by law to issue a child custody order that he or she determines is in the best interest of your kids. The judge can only decide on allowing you to present evidence to support your position on the child custody orders that are in the best interests of your kids. Arizona Revised Statute Section 25-403 lists the factors the court must consider when issuing a child custody order. The court must also take into account the factors listed in Arizona Revised Statute Section 25-408 if a parent wishes to relocate more than one-hundred miles from their current home and the court issued a prior child custody order.
