Visitation

questions & answers

Question: eI have a parenting plan that has been in place for some years now, my child is about to be 5 which is school age. How can I get a modification of just the parenting plan or will i have tso modify child custody and visitation? Are there any forms that I can file myelf? I dont mind how the custody arrangement was set in place or child support years ago, i just need an order that states the parenting time needs to be changed because the child has reached school age. When school starts in August and I dont honor the order in place bc child cant miss school, will i have my rights taken away?

Answer:

There is a guide ,Planning for Parenting Time: Arizona’s Guide for Parents Living Apart, that may be helpful to determine what type of visitation plan would be appropriate for the child’s age.

 

In Maricopa County, the forms and instructions can be found online. If a different county court is needed, use the court locator to find it.

 

Not knowing the specifics of the parenting plan mentioned above, it would be better to speak to an attorney about what options may be best. A list of free or low cost legal services can be found on this website. There are also some Family Law attorneys that provide free consultations.
