Grandparents visitation rights cannot violate parent rights

There are cases where Arizona parents may refuse to allow their child's family members, including the child's maternal or fraternal grandparents, to visit. This can be particularly distressing for both the family members and the child, especially if a relationship has already been established. In some cases, the family members may seek visitation through the court system.

Parental alienation syndrome

When two Arizona residents have a child, one parent is often granted primary physical custody while the other parent is granted visitation rights. In some cases, however, one parent may decide that they do not want the other parent to be involved in their child's life; as such, they may attempt to alienate the child from the other parent.

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.
