As Phoenix family law attorneys, we understand that situations and wishes change over time. If your Arizona child custody orders are no longer working for you or your child, and there has been a major change in your situation, then it's probably time to take a good look at your custody orders and see if a change is needed.
The courts in Arizona will look at any request to change custody in Arizona and decide if the change is in the child's best interests. If the child is being abused or neglected, emergency orders will be put in place to make sure the child is safe while long-term decisions are made. Otherwise, the judge will consider the desires of both the parents and child, how the change will affect the child, and many other factors to determine if a change is appropriate.
