Child Custody

questions & answers

Question: At time of divorce we lived in Germany and in military custody orders made there my ex wife is still very bitter been years since divorce she rarely me see my son now we live in the same city how to go about custody and visitation

Answer: Your question leaves out several key facts.  Are you still in the military?  Arizona Revised Statutes, section 25-1033 tells you when the Arizona courts have jurisdiction to modify a custody decree.  The best thing you can do is retain a lawyer to help you get the Arizona courts to take jurisdiction of the case.  Based on the jurisdictional language in the statute, you will need to ask the prior court to relinquish jurisdiction and cede jurisdiction to Arizona because all the parties now reside in the state.
