Many Arizona households are comprised of single parents and their children. Yours might be among those whose family dynamics changed to this scenario because of a divorce. If so, then parenting time was no doubt a top priority issue when you devised a co-parenting agreement.
Whether you’re sharing custody with your ex or you have sole custody and your co-parent has visitation, it’s critical that both parents remain willing to work together as a team. When there’s a court order in place, each parent must adhere to its terms. This means that, even if you have sole custody, if a judge ruled that your ex may pick the children up for visits three times per week, then you must make sure the children are at the designated pickup and drop-off locations at the specified times.
It’s possible for an issue to arise that is not addressed in your court order. For instance, perhaps, there is no mention of school events or spontaneous celebrations, and which parent gets to be present for these or other special occasions. Maybe your ex has been trying to impede your parenting time by not allowing you access to your children when you’re supposed to have it.
