If you have ever seen a military marching band, such as the United States Air Force (USAF) Academy Band, perform then you know how important it is for every member to remain in step. Coordinating schedules and addressing all of the details involved in child custody and visitation issues can feel a lot like trying to reorganize a marching band that has fallen horribly out of step.
At Centuori & Associates, PLLC, we understand how important it is for a child to have a quality relationship with both parents. Our lawyers are committed to helping couples identify child custody and visitation arrangements that meet the needs of everyone involved.
Every client faces different challenges during a child custody battle. We are committed to addressing those unique needs and laying the groundwork for an effective and productive long-term relationship between co-parents. Sometimes that means helping a client with his or her communication skills. Other times it involves identifying key legal concerns and negotiating for a positive resolution.
Custody and Support
Physical custody is related to the amount of time that a child is with one parent or the other. It is always a goal of our firm to equalize the amount of time a child spends with his or her parents, although this is not always possible for a variety of reasons. Our lawyers will work hard to identify the best possible parenting scheme for your family and seek the best possible result for your individual case. Likewise, both parents must be able to discuss issues related to their child. Those who are able to co-parent effectively are likely candidates for shared legal custody (decision-making authority). If it is impossible for parents to make decisions jointly, then one parent must have the authority to do so. That is called sole legal custody.
Arizona has very specific rules regarding child support. We will take the time to explain the rules, your obligations and what you can expect from the process. Under certain circumstances, the court will make an exception and modify the child support payment. Our lawyers will represent your best interests in a court of law and explain the options available to you.
In any parenting time agreement, the objective is to help you foster a relationship with your children. It is possible to create an agreement that takes into account the realities of an unusual work schedule, as well as the unique needs of every member of the family. Whatever your concerns may be, we are here to help.
In addition, our firm understands the unique problems faced by railroad workers, firefighters, police officers and members of the military. We are here to help you maintain a relationship with your children by effectively coordinating the details of the custody and parenting time agreements.
