Question: My parents are divorced with joint custody but I really don't want to spend very much time with my father. How are custody issues decided?
Answer: In divorce cases the judge makes custody decisions based on what he or she considers to be best for the children. Changes in custody agreements are made only after the parents have formally requested a change and demonstrated that the change is best for the child. (A.R.S. § 25-403).

My parents have been divorced for about 7 years now and my mom is disabled. We are going through a really hard time right now and I cant even discribe how much I'd rather live at my dad's house; there is so much less stress over there and I can actually leave the house. (since my mom is disabled, we dont really go there.) She is really mean because of the disease, nd it does things psychologically to he making her very intolerant and over protective. My dad lives close, butismovingclosertomyscool.Iwanttogetthingsfiguredoutbeforehedoes.whatcanidotogetsomeonetowarrantadifferentcustodysituation?

I live with Mom right now a and see my Dad on the weekends, my Mom isn't a very good parent is often drinking. I really want to live with my Dad but I don't know how to change that. Can anyone help? Also my Dad is always getting pushed around by mom for child support, I've heard that if you have recipes for things the non-custodial parent bought they can deduct that from there child care payments.
