Domestic Violence

questions & answers

Question: My daughter refuses to go to her moms, what happens if she doesnt go? She is being emotionally abused by her mom. Also, can i file for emergency custody if i can prove it?

Answer: If a child is being abused emergency or temporary orders can be filed that will allow one person to temporarily receive all of the parenting time of the child until the best interest of the child can be determined by the court. Paperwork for temporary orders can be found online under the family law section at your local law library self service center. For example the forms are available here for Maricopa: https://superiorcourt.maricopa.gov/llrc/protective-orders/
