Many family attorneys Arizona residents trust understand that when parents are in the middle of a child custody case, it may be difficult to keep communication civil.

After all, custody of your child is the most important legal issue you may ever face, and emotions are often high.

This is why parents who are involved in contentious custody battles should retain the services of one of the family attorneys Arizona provides.

How Will the Court Decide Custody?

Family attorneys in Arizona know that when a judge determines child custody, that decision will be based on what is in the best interest of the child.

There are several factors he or she will examine to make that decision, including:

  • The wishes of the parents
  • The wishes of the child are (dependent on the child’s age)
  • The emotional and physical health of the child and the parents
  • Interactions between the child and each parent, as well as the interaction between the child and any additional caregivers
  • How the child has adjusted to their current home, school, and community
  • Any records of domestic violence or any other child abuse
  • The willingness of each parent to ensure the child’s relationship with the other parent is an ongoing one

Many family attorneys Arizona clients rely on also understand that the court may consider both parents’ willingness to let go of their resentment and anger toward each other for the benefit of their child.

Allowing the child to have a relationship with both parents is often a critical factor in custody cases.

When a parent is willing to display this selflessness, it reveals that the parent can put the emotional needs of the child before their own emotional needs.

If a parent attempts to intimidate or bully the other parent, the court could consider that detrimental to the child’s emotional well-being and award sole custody to the other parent.

For example, if the parents are divorcing, Parent A might try to threaten Parent B by restricting Parent B’s interactions with the child, in exchange for something else (such as ownership of the family’s home).

The court may consider this threat and give preference to Parent B during custody decisions because Parent A previously put their interests before the well-being of the child.
