Answer:

If you are looking for someone to assist you with the divorce process, you may want to contact an attorney to discuss your current situation with them. Additionally, you may want to look at some of the resources for domestic violence on this site.

Generally, child custody and visitation is based on the best interests of the child. You may want to look at the article on this website titled, "Things you Should Know about Custody and Parenting Time." That article discusses how the court makes its decisions about custody and parenting time, what the court considers when deciding the best interest of the child and the differences between custody and parenting time. You may also want to review some of the Arizona Revised Statutes pertaining to visitation and child custody. For example, A.R.S. § 25-403 discusses what the court considers when it considers the best interests of the child. A.R.S. § 25-403.03 deals with domestic violence and custody.
