Child custody in Arizona has two separate parts: Legal Custody and Physical Custody. 

In simple terms, Physical Custody refers to which parent the child is considered to live with as a primary residence as well as the specific Parenting Schedule each parent will follow. 

Legal custody refers to which parent may make decisions with important matters such as Education, Health Care and Religion. 

When determining Child Custody, the courts will rely on and consider a wide variety of factors related to the Child and the circumstances of each parent. Understanding these factors and the best ways to achieve your desired results for Custody can be challenging.
