Phoenix Child Visitation Modification Lawyer

The visitation plan that worked for you at the time of your divorce may not work for you today. If your visitation schedule is no longer appropriate for your current circumstances, our lawyers can help you secure a modification of that order.

At DeShon Laraye Pullen PLC, in Phoenix, Arizona, our lawyers represent mothers and fathers who wish to modify visitation (also known as parenting time). In some cases, parents with visitation contact us because they want to spend more time with their children or see them on a different schedule. In other cases, parents with primary child custody wish to restrict their ex's visitation.

Modifying Child Visitation In Arizona

Factors that can precipitate a change in visitation include:

  • The current plan is no longer appropriate given the age of your child
  • A change in work schedule
  • Employment or unemployment
  • Relocation
  • Child preferences
  • A change in a child's performance at school
  • Drug or alcohol use
  • Physical or sexual abuse
  • Exposing a child to domestic violence or inappropriate behavior
  • An unsafe environment

In determining whether to modify an existing visitation plan, courts are concerned solely with the best interests of the child rather than the desires of the parents. The law in Arizona says that it is in the child's best interests to have substantial contact with both parents, absent issues such as child abuse, domestic violence and child safety.

In addition to modifications, our lawyers can assist you with enforcement of existing visitation schedules if you are facing issues such as:

  • Failure to provide visitation
  • Failure to timely return a child to the custodial parent following visitation
