Will spousal abuse impact child custody in an Arizona divorce?

Spousal abuse comes in many forms. Physical abuse is the most talked-about form of abuse, and it involves any kind of physical assault or battery of one spouse or the children in the household by the other adult. Emotional abuse can involve a range of toxic behaviors, such as gaslighting, intentionally insulting or belittling a spouse, or undermining his or her authority and value in front of the children or others.There are other kinds of abuse beyond the better known types. Sometimes abuse is sexual in nature, where one spouse forces physical intimacy or sex acts with a spouse who has not consented. It could be financial, which happens when one spouse carefully controls the financial freedom of the other spouse by limiting access to money or carefully monitoring any use of household funds. That can leave one spouse unable to live independently.
