In most family law and divorce cases, there are common issues: property division, alimony, child custody and child support. For many parents in Arizona who are going through a divorce, the primary concern is child custody. After all, every parent wants what is best for their children. Disagreements arise, however, over what, exactly, is best for the child in question.
Most parents in the Phoenix area would probably agree that, in a perfect world, they would share custody of their children in such a way that both parents would have input in important decisions and would also spend plenty of time with the children.
Like many other states, Arizona has a law that governs what parents who are subject to child custody and parenting time orders must do if they wish to move with the children in their care.
You have primary custody of your child, and your co-parent has visitation rights that are detailed in your custody and visitation agreement. However, when it's time for your child to go to your co-parent's home, they resist. Depending on their age, they may throw a temper tantrum or simply refuse to go.
Scheduling time off of work and planning activities (whether at home or away) around spring break can be challenging enough for married parents. For divorced parents who both want to spend time with their kids during their time off school, it can be particularly difficult. Schools may not schedule spring break for the same week every year. Different schools, even within the same area, may not have the same spring break weeks. Therefore, parents may have kids with different weeks off.
