Answer:

The following is provided for general information only. To find out how the law applies to a specific situation, contact an attorney directly.

We are unable to speculate as to the chances of retaining custody in a matter, that is information that should be sought from an attorney who can evaluate the merits of the case more closely.  However there is an article on this site call "THINGS YOU SHOULD KNOW ABOUT CUSTODY AND PARENTING TIME" that will be helpful in answering general questions.  As the article states, if custody and parenting time cannot be agreed upon by the parents, then the Superior Court in the proper county will make that legal determination.  A decision on custody and parenting time is based upon the best interests of the child, and Arizona law provides that parents are entitled to reasonable parenting time provided that there is no danger to the child.  This information at more are located in the article.  AZLawHelp also has a resource page titled "Legal Assistance", with various organizations listed as well as an article on legal aid organizations in Arizona
