questions & answers

Question: My exhusband and his girlfriend purchased a home together. I have been refused their new address and I feel that I have the right to know where they live, in case of an emergency. What are the legal ramifications of the primary custodial parent not knowing where the children live every other weekend? Do I have that right to know?

Answer:

In addition to the following, please refer to the rulings of your specific divorce case in regards to changing addresses and the rights of a primary custodial parent in relation to information. In a joint custody agreement, both parties submit a proposed parenting plan that provides a schedule of the physical address of the child, including holidays and vacations. If any agreements in the parenting plan are allegedly breached, the plan includes a procedure for how to settle such problems, which may include the use of conciliation services or private counseling. ARS 25-403.02

Additionally, both parents are guaranteed access to all records pertaining to a child, as outlined in ARS 25-403. Furthermore, ARS 13-1302 describes custodial interference and may be used a source of reference. For information on how the law applies to your situation please see this website for possible legal aid options.
