When two parents cannot agree on “reasonable” child visitation rights in AZ, they often turn to the court for a resolution. If one parent has a history of abusive or unstable behavior, the court may require that parent’s visitation to be supervised. In some instances, parents and the court determine together who will supervise the visits. On the other hand, the court can also appoint a person whom the parents do not know to supervise the visits. If the court orders supervised parenting, the supervised parent can petition the court for unsupervised visits after establishing that he or she is not a danger to either him/herself or the child over time.
While it can be challenging to petition the court for unsupervised visitation rights, a Mesa Arizona family law attorney can help facilitate the process. If you have questions about legal custody and/or visitation rights in Arizona, contact the Mesa Arizona family law firm of JacksonWhite.
