Divorcing couples can save money

Arizona couples considering divorce could learn from a New Jersey couple that acrimoniously divorced after 20 years of marriage. The husband fought paying spousal support for a year, even though the wife reportedly earned 40 percent less than him. At the end, legal costs amount to roughly $300,000. Although this example is extreme, there are ways to keep costs down for a divorce.

Virtual visitation and Arizona child custody

Arizona parents embroiled in child custody disputes may have another avenue available to ensure visitation. Known as virtual visitation, this kind of arrangement is a catch-all term encompassing the use of telephones and Internet resources, such as email, video chat and instant messaging, to allow children to stay in touch with a non-custodial parent when they cannot be present. While Arizona has no formalized law concerning virtual visitation, it is nevertheless considered a viable option for enhanced visitation.

When parents do not exercise their visitation rights

Nothing can be more frustrating to an Arizona custodial parent than when the other parent doesn't show up to pick up their child for his or her scheduled visitation. The custodial parent may have to scramble to find child care and the child may be upset, feeling rejected. Parents may wonder if there is anything they can do about this failure to exercise parenting time.

Child custody arrangements in Arizona

In Arizona, the courts will step in to make parenting time decisions when the parents are unable to come to an arrangement on their own. Under state law, when the courts are required to intervene, they try to choose a plan that gives both parents time with the child and allows for them to share in the legal decision-making aspects of child rearing. Ultimately, the court's main concern with child custody matters is to adopt a plan that is in the child's best interests.
