Scottsdale Child Custody And Visitation Attorneys

At Horne Slaton, PLLC, nothing is more important than resolving child custody and visitation issues in a way that addresses the child’s best interests.

Even in sharply contested divorces, parents are often able to set their unhappiness with one another aside in order to consider what is best for the child or children they both love.

The parenting plan we present will seek to avoid future disagreements and to spare both parents additional stress, time and money.

The court will evaluate the plan and other documents and testimony in order to resolve these questions:

  • How the parents plan to share custody
  • What the child wants to do
  • Each parent’s relationship with the child
  • The child’s relationship with siblings or other parties
  • Which parent is willing to let the child spend quality time with the noncustodial parent
  • The overall health, physical and mental, of both parents and the child
  • Who is currently taking care of the child
  • Whether either parent has been coercive in efforts to gain custody
  • Whether either parent has a history of domestic violence or abuse

Our approach in this evaluative process is to position you and your intentions for your child in the most positive possible light. The court will consider a number of factors before arriving at a decision, but this framing plays a significant part in the final outcome.
