If a parent in Arizona is not granted custody of a child, that person is likely to be granted visitation rights. However, a visitation schedule may not look the same for all households. In some cases, a parent may be allowed to see a child on weekends or on alternating weeks. It is also possible that a parent will get to his or her child during school vacations or during the holidays.
Parents and children in Arizona normally enjoy a healthy mix of enjoyment and anxiety during the holidays due to the bustle of activity characteristic of this time of the year.

Tension between exes can further complicate matters, which is why the recommendations discussed below are often made to help parents still experience the joy of spending the holidays with their children without added stress.

You know what precious cargo means if you have children and are headed for an Arizona divorce. There is flatly nothing more important during the divorce process and thereafter than your focused attention - and that of your impending ex - on the best interests of your kids.
Had he known the dire consequences linked with a reduction in child support payments and a couple extra weeks with his son in the summer, an ex-Navy veteran would hit the replay button on his life.
When people in Arizona or anywhere else in America can't agree on how to divide custody of their children, a visitation schedule could be created for them. In some cases, a schedule is needed because the parents live a long distance from each other. However, it may also be necessary if the parties are unable or unwilling to come to an arrangement on their own.
Parents in Arizona who pay or receive child support may be interested to learn that almost $33 billion of child support was collected in the federal fiscal year 2016. According to a representative of the Office of Child Support Enforcement, 75 percent of the support that was collected was obtained through income withholding. The OCSE is taking certain steps and collaborating with payroll businesses and professionals to make sure the income withholding collection process continues to yield good results.
