Child Custody

questions & answers

Question: I have sole physical custody of my 3 daughters. How do I go about giving their mother custody rights?

Answer:

Only a court can modify a custody order that gives sole custody to one parent.  As with the original custody determination, a court will use the best interests of the child standard to determine whether to make a modification and how to modify the order.  A.R.S. 25-411.  To find the forms required to file for a modification, visit the self-service center of your local superior court.  These forms can also be found online, for example, at the Maricopa County Superior Court Self Service Center.  For legal assistance with a custody modification, consult a licensed attorney.
