Grandparents are an important part of a child’s life, providing love, support, and stability. However, when it comes to custody and visitation rights for grandparents in Arizona, the laws can be complex and confusing. If you are facing a situation in which you have been denied visitation to your grandchild(ren) or you believe the parent(s) are unfit, ReGain Law is here to help.
Grandparents’ rights can be a complicated issue because courts typically favor parental rights over those of non-parent. However, if both parents agree to grant visitation or if there is evidence that such visitation would be in the child’s best interest then it may be possible for grandparents to obtain legal guardianship or court ordered visitation. In order for this to happen, both parents must sign off on it or an attorney must prove that it is in the child’s best interest.
In certain cases, such as when one parent has passed away or if an unmarried couple has split up, grandparents may seek guardianship of their grandchildren through court proceedings. This process requires filing a petition with a family court judge and proving that granting guardianship is in the best interest of the child. The judge will consider factors such as whether both parents agree with granting guardianship as well as any potential harm that could occur if it were granted.

Grandparents Rights Litigation is a type of court case that grants rights to grandparents to have contact with their grandchildren or seek custody through the court system. It is used when parents are unable or unwilling to provide access for their children's grandparents, and allows the grandparent to petition the court for basic plea entitlement.
The process begins by filing a petition in the county courthouse where either the grandchild resides or where one or both parents live. The pleadings typically outline why the grandparent should be granted rights and access, including arguments for visitation, custody, or other forms of communication between grandparent and grandchild.
In most courts, an order may be requested from the judge after filing an initial petition. This temporary order would protect any grandparents’ rights while they wait to proceed with a more permanent arrangement in court. In some cases, evidence may be necessary to prove that the parent-grandparent relationship is beneficial for all parties involved and visitation would help contribute to better mental health of all involved parties. After evidence has been presented, it is up to a judge to weigh out different factors and make decisions regarding custodial arrangements.
After all documents have been filed, decisions can take several weeks before they are handed down from a judge. Grandparents who successfully attain guardianship will then be allowed to request compensation from close family members such as birth parents if applicable in certain states. Any decision made by a judge must still abide by state-specific laws so it’s important to research your state rules before making any move towards legal action when it comes to grandparents’ rights litigation.
Grandparents’ rights for visitation in Arizona are outlined under the Grandparent Visitation Statute, A.R.S. §§ 25-409 and 25-415. Under this statute, grandparents seeking contact with their grandchildren may request court orders granting them reasonable visitation rights with their grandchild(ren), provided that certain conditions are met.
The court will only grant such an order if it finds that denying the grandparent's visitation would cause harm to the child or if one of the parents has died and the other parent is found to be unfit or not acting in the best interests of the child. The court also takes into account whether there is a pre-existing relationship between grandparent and grandchild, and if so, how much contact they had prior to going to court.
Under Arizona law, once an order granting a grandparent visitation has been issued, either parent can file a motion to modify or terminate it at any time provided they have justification of why doing so would be in the child’s best interests. The court must then balance factors such as each party’s mental health and well-being along with any potential changes to residences before making a decision on modification or termination of all or part of the previous order.
