For Arizona parents, child custody can be one of the most difficult aspects of a divorce. It is not easy to go from living with your child to sharing parenting time, but with patience and a clear understanding of your rights and options, it may be possible to secure a custody and visitation plan that allows you to retain a strong role in the life of your child.
For some Arizona couples, a complex and litigious divorce is not the only option. While the end of a marriage will certainly be difficult, there are ways by which you can bypass some complications and move on toward your post-divorce future in a more peaceful, productive manner. One of the ways you can do this is by choosing a collaborative divorce.
Despite that your marriage is ending, you and your spouse have made the mature and practical decision to cooperate in forming a parenting plan that will benefit both of you as well as your children. Difficult as it may be to divide the time with your children, you understand how important it is for their well-being to have as much time with both of you as possible.
