What is Sole Legal Custody or Sole Decision Making in Arizona?
A parent granted sole custody (now referred to as “sole legal decision making”) has the authority to make the final determination regarding the major life decisions affecting the parents’ children. Sole custody permits a parent to decide where the children attend school, the health care the children receive, and the extracurricular activities the children will participate in regardless of the opinion of the other parent.
Unless otherwise ordered, the other parent is still entitled to obtain information regarding his or her children’s performance in school, performance in extracurricular activities, and health care from the other parent or directly from the provider of those services.
There are exceptions to this general rule when disclosure of the information by the provider of services to the child is reasonably calculated to result in serious harm to the child.
