The Law Firm of M. Paul Fischer, P.C. is an experienced Arizona law firm in the areas of legal decision and parenting time (child custody) representation. Our attorneys are dedicated to protecting our clients' access to their children. Our firm has a reputation for successfully negotiating complex legal decision making and parenting time cases.
Legal Decision Making (Custody)
Almost all divorcing parents seek some form of legal decision making (child custody). Unmarried parents can also develop legal decision making (custody) and visitation plans. There are different types of legal decision making--sole, joint, and joint physical. Our Arizona attorneys have handled all types of legal decision making (child custody) cases.
Our Arizona attorneys understand that in almost all cases parents want what is in the best interests of their child. We understand that many cases become extremely complicated. Our attorneys routinely handle cases involving allegations of parental unfitness and efforts to prohibit access of a parent to a child. We have also helped unmarried parents who are involved in paternity or maternity legal actions obtain parenting time rights. Our Arizona attorneys work with psychologists to determine what is in the best interests of the child, whatever the status of the parents.

The term parenting time, or child visitation, refers to the time the parents have access with the child. Our Arizona parenting time attorneys understand the complex laws associated with parenting time and have broad experience handling the complex family situations often involved in establishing parenting time. We also understand the elevated emotions associated with parenting time issues and strive to provide our clients with aggressive representation driven by experience rather than emotion. It is understood that parenting time can reflect an equal access arrangement. It can also mean an access schedule in which the child spends more than 50% of the time with one parent.
Modifications of Order
A change in the life of one parent can often trigger a modification of the legal decision making (custody) or visitation or parenting time orders. For example, one parent may move from the area, making compliance with orders more difficult. One parent's work schedule may change drastically, necessitating a change in the parenting time arrangements. Whatever the reason, our attorneys can address the need for a modification of an order with the knowledge that comes from many years of successfully undertaking this work.
