GROUNDS

An irretrievable breakdown of the marriage is the only grounds for the dissolution of a marriage in the state of Arizona.

CHILD CUSTODY The court will determine custody based solely on the best interests of the child. Either individual or joint custody may be awarded, as long as the child’s best interests are preserved. The court may issue an order for joint custody of a child if both parents are in agreement and submit a written parenting plan.

When determining custody, the court may take the desires of the parents and the child(ren) into consideration, as well as who the primary caregiver of the child has been. Other factors which the court considers include the mental and physical health of either party; whether or not a parent has a drug offense or any sort of criminal conviction on his or her record; and which parent would be more likely to allow the child frequent and meaningful contact with the other parent, to ensure that both parents are involved in raising the child.

CHILD SUPPORT

Unless special circumstances exist, Arizona’s specific child support guidelines apply in virtually every case. Both parties gross income and other child related expenses are taken into consideration in the child support calculation. In some cases, child support may be extended through the child’s secondary education.
