Keeping The Needs Of Your Whole Family In Mind
Divorce changes everything about your family, including the time you spend with your children. The goal is always to make the transition as easy as possible for your kids in order to keep life as close to "normal" as possible. All decisions in child custody are made "in the best interests of the child" as determined by Arizona state law.
At Stolar & Pollins, our mother-daughter team will work with you to create a parenting plan that accommodates you, your spouse and your children. The parenting plan will affect all of you for many years. We will educate you thoroughly on the many possible parenting arrangements to help you choose and make the best decisions for your family and you.We consult with psychologists and other professional experts to help plan for parenting time as your children grow up and their needs change.
Our Tucson child custody attorneys always strive to help you settle your child custody decisions with your spouse, during mediation or through negotiation, but we are always prepared to litigate when necessary.
Legal Custody Versus Physical Custody
Legal custody defines the power to make decisions in your child's life, including education, religion and health care. One parent can have legal custody or parents can share legal custody. We will help you determine what the best arrangement for your situation will be.
Physical custody is defined by which parent your child lives with for his or her primary residence. Parents can have joint physical custody but this does not guarantee equal parenting time. One parent having primary residential custody does not deny the other parent time with his or her children.
