Parenting guidelines for divorced Arizona residents

After a divorce, one or both parents may be entitled to spend time with and make decisions regarding their child. If one parent is granted the right to make decisions about a child, he or she is referred to as the sole decision maker. However, both parents may provide input into a decision before it is made, and that input may help guide the decision-making process.

If both parents are allowed to make decisions regarding the child, they will be referred to as joint legal decision makers. In some cases, a judge may declare that only one parent is allowed to make certain decisions because it is in the best interest of the child. Such an arrangement requires both parents to communicate with each other, and it is often not a good arrangement if domestic violence has occurred in the past.
