Ensuring That Fathers Are Treated Fairly

During divorce proceedings in Arizona, both parties have a right to seek fair custody and visitation schedules that allow them to remain a part of their children's lives. Too often, fathers feel like the legal system is stacked against them and they cannot get a fair hearing.

At Schneider Law Office, attorney Gary Schneider understands these concerns. He has dedicated his career to strongly advocating for the rights and interests of his clients, both in and out of court.

As a lawyer who exclusively practices family law, he has an in-depth knowledge of Arizona's family laws that few attorneys in Maricopa County can match. No matter his clients' goals, he works closely with them to establish a strong legal strategy tailored to fit their needs.

Arizona's Fathers' Rights Laws

Arizona previously gained a reputation as a "mother-friendly" state during divorce proceedings. This was largely because mothers frequently obtained custody and visitation agreements that gave them the upper hand over fathers.

Legislation enacted in 2013 leveled the playing field for many fathers. Now, the courts are encouraged to incorporate joint parenting into final custody and parenting time agreements. Courts will seek to maximize the time both parents have with their children, thereby giving fathers much greater access to their children after divorce.
