In Arizona, custody is known as “legal decision-making” and visitation is known as “parenting time.” Custody is complicated and it is important to try to find an experienced lawyer to help you with your case.

In our general Custody page, we have information about custody that is not specific to any state. The page includes a section about how to try to transfer your custody case to a new state where you are living so that you can modify the custody order from your new state.
