The different ways to establish paternity

If a child is born to parents who are married, the mother's husband is assumed to be the father. However, if a child's parents are not married when a child is born, no such assumption is made. Instead, the father may sign a form acknowledging his paternity. By signing the form, a man is entitled to all the rights that a normal father would have. He also assumes all of the obligations that come with being a child's legal parent.

The basis for determining a parent unfit to raise a child

Most parents in Arizona and throughout the country are fit to raise their children. However, if a parent is deemed to be unfit, he or she could be denied custody or other rights to a son or daughter. In some cases, those rights may be terminated completely, and in the event that both of a child's parents are seen as unfit, he or she could be adopted by another family.

How old calendars can be helpful in child custody cases

For many Arizona parents of young children, the new year means purchasing a new calendar and throwing out the one from the previous year. However, before they do so, they may want to think twice. It could be helpful if their marriage is coming to an end.

How international custody disputes are handled

Globalization as well as the opportunity to work and study in other countries and have led to more "international" marriages. If two people from different countries separate after having children, custody issues could be quite complex. Individuals in Arizona may wonder how situations are handled when international custody disputes materialize.
