A: The court will probably find that an hour away (especially for holidays) is not a huge issue considering the court can order people to travel to Arizona every other weekend to drop off the child if that parent lives in Southern California. Local traffic is bad and an hour is a very common drive. There might be certain issues that a lawyer can look at more closely, but that requires a thorough analysis. Most lawyers offer a free initial consultation.
