Does Your Military Status Affect Child Custody and Parenting Time

Does Your Military Status Affect Child Custody and Parenting Time

Under Arizona Revised Statutes, particularly ARS 25-411, the impact of deployment is carefully considered in custody decisions. When a military parent is deployed, the court must assess how this change in circumstances affects the child’s best interests. During deployment, temporary modifications to custody arrangements are often necessary. The law acknowledges that while a parent’s absence due to deployment should not be the sole factor in modifying custody, it does require adjustments to ensure the child’s needs are continuously met.These temporary changes are designed with the understanding that the parent’s military service is a duty that, by its nature, can lead to unpredictable and substantial changes in their ability to provide regular care.The court also considers the military parent’s Family Care Plan, as this plan provides a detailed outline of how the child will be cared for in the parent’s absence.
