You should contact a probate attorney, and his estate is likely to go through the probate courts. Because he died without a will, his estate will go through a process called "intestacy" to determine who his heirs are.

My heart goes out to you. It sounds like you're in a very difficult position.
The law for temporary emergency jurisdiction is ARS 25-1034. The best case on your side is probably Arturo D. v. Dep't of Child Safety, 249 Ariz. 20 (App. 2020) where Arizona did exercise emergency...Read more »

He will have a right to see her if he is clean, but you would want to ask for supervised parenting time at his expense at a court affiliated parenting skills center or no parenting time if he is using.

You should consult with an attorney because that's a complicated question.
Arizona is generally a 50-50 state, and Arizona generally only goes away from 50-50 if there's some sort of safety concern with one of the parents or it's not logistically possible to do equal...Read more »

You can request a continuance to retain an attorney. The Motion may not be granted but it is worth the attempt. You should contact an attorney immediately to seek representation so that you can inform the Judge that you have already began the process of securing representation.

I know I'm a couple weeks late here, but filing an emergency when you already have custody is unnecessary. I certainly see what CPS is saying.

You raise three different issues question, so let me address them separately:

Can you? More than likely. Should you? Probably not unless you have specific evidence of why the other parent is not a fit parent. Unfortunately, many adults completely lack the ability to co-parent. Hopefully since the other parent's accusations were found to be meritless, the other parent...Read more »
