Child Abuse & Neglect

questions & answers

Question: My daughter's teacher has given some specific issues regarding neglect of our child. Her mother is responsible for her schooling, but on her custody days the teacher has noticed some "red flags" in the last month, as well as some increased absences. If the cases are specific enough, and I can back them up with written statements from her teacher, would this warrant a temporary order without notice?

Answer: The statutes that govern temporary orders are found under Rule 47 of the Arizona Rules of Family Law Procudure. Arizona Revised Statute (A.R.S. § 25-404) specifically defines what is necessary for temporary orders and A.R.S. § 25-403 defines what is in the best interest of a child.
