WHAT ARE MY OPTIONS FOR CHILD CUSTODY?
HOW DO I PROTECT MY CHILD?
If you are trying to establish rights to a child in Arizona, you may be a parent or a non-parent. If you are a biological or adoptive parent, your rights are superior to all others as they concern your child. However, your rights can be affected by some of the following accusations: Abuse of a child; Abuse of substances including recreational or prescription drugs or alcohol; or Abandonment of your child. Your rights can also be affected if you demonstrate a lack of fitness to be a parent.
When a parent has a prior court order confirming rights, then the court order controls access to the child and the ability to make decisions until the court order changes.
