How Our Family Lawyers Can Help

Our Arizona family law firm can handle all family law matters, including the following:

  • Divorce. Whether uncontested, contested, high asset, or same-sex, we can help you resolve all the intricacies and details of your case, whether through mediation, other alternative dispute resolution methods, or at trial to secure your best interests.
  • Child Custody. This issue determines physical custody (with whom the child will reside) and legal custody (granting parents the right to make major life decisions, such as for schooling, healthcare, religion, and more). This issue generally involves parenting plans which outline the details and terms of how parents will share the responsibilities and rights in raising the child.
  • Child Support. This financial support is the right of the child and is mandated by law in a divorce or when sought after paternity has been established.
  • Alimony/Spousal Support. This financial support is not automatic in a divorce. You must petition the court if you believe you should receive it. We represent spouses both seeking and contesting it.
  • Division of Marital Property and Debt. This can be one of the most divisive and complicated issues in ending a marriage. We can represent your financial interests and rights in this matter.
  • Paternity. We represent unmarried parents seeking to establish paternity which is the first step towards securing child support or child custody.
  • Legal Separation. Some couples prefer to seek a legal separation as opposed to a divorce. We can help you resolve all issues related to this process.
  • Modifications of Court Orders. When substantial changes occur in your life, you may need to petition the court to modify current child support, custody, or alimony orders. We can prepare your case and represent you in seeking or contesting such changes.
  • Enforcement of Court Orders. Where a parent or ex-spouse refuses to abide by family court orders, we can step in to seek enforcement through the courts. 
  • Prenuptial and Postnuptial Agreements. We can help you negotiate, draft, and finalize these written contracts as well as provide independent counsel if your partner presents you with one.
  • Guardianships/Conservatorships of Minors or Incapacitated Adults. We provide representation in seeking or contesting these court appointments. 
  • Grandparents’ Rights. In some cases, grandparents may seek visitation rights or custody of a grandchild. Our firm can advise and guide you on this matter.
  • Divorce Mediation. If you and your spouse cannot agree on the terms of your divorce, including parenting, property, finances, or other issues, we can assist with mediation. We work with those currently represented by an attorney and self-represented individuals. 
  • Domestic violence. If you have suffered from abuse or threats of abuse, we can help by filing protective orders. We also represent those who have been falsely accused in these matters. 
  • Child Relocation. This involves divorced or separated parents wishing to move with a child to a distant city or state, affecting custody. Our firm can advise and guide parents seeking as well as opposing such relocations.

Common Mistakes in Handling Family Law Issues and the Role of a Family Lawyer

When navigating the complex terrain of family law, people often make critical mistakes that can have long-lasting consequences on their emotional well-being and financial stability. One of the most common errors is attempting to handle legal matters without professional guidance, underestimating the complexity of the law, and overestimating their understanding of legal procedures and documents. This can lead to unfavorable agreements, particularly in areas like child custody, division of marital assets, and spousal support, where a deep understanding of the law is crucial.

Another frequent oversight is letting emotions dictate legal decisions, which can result in prolonged disputes, increased legal fees, and agreements that don't serve anyone's best interests in the long term. Failure to consider the tax implications of divorce settlements can also lead to unexpected financial burdens down the line.

Engaging a family lawyer can help you sidestep these pitfalls. A skilled family lawyer brings not only a thorough understanding of family law but also a level of objectivity that is often hard to maintain in emotionally charged situations. This professional legal guidance ensures that all decisions are made with a clear understanding of their long-term impact, both emotionally and financially. Family lawyers also play a critical role in mediation and negotiation, crafting agreements that protect your interests and those of your family. By addressing potential issues proactively, a family lawyer can save you from future legal headaches, ensuring that your rights are safeguarded throughout the process and beyond.
