Question: My uncle has custody of my sister and he won't let her have contact with me is there anything I can do so that I am able to be in contact with her
Answer: Under A.R.S. 25-409, a person other than a legal parent may petition the superior court for visitation with a child. The superior court may grant visitation rights on a finding that the visitation is in the child's best interests and that any of the following is true: 1. One of the legal parents is deceased or has been missing at least three months. 2. The child was born out of wedlock and the child's legal parents are not married to each other at the time the petition is filed. 3. For grandparent or great-grandparent visitation, the marriage of the parents of the child has been dissolved for at least three months. 4. For in loco parentis (someone who acts like a parent) visitation, the legal parents have a pending divorce or separation.
