What does aggressive representation mean? It does not mean starting fights with the other side that will cost you time and money. It does mean protecting your interests at every step in the family law process. It does mean helping you through a divorce with as little difficulty and cost as possible. It does mean having a thorough knowledge of you, your family, your concerns and your goals.
Our lawyers help clients with a full range of family law matters. Please see our Practice Areas page.
Every family is unique, with a different set of facts, circumstances and concerns. When you come into our law firm for a free half-hour consultation, we will talk about your family. In a divorce consultation, for example, your attorney will discuss:
- Your children: Your lawyer will explain the laws regarding child custody and parenting time (visitation).
- Child support: We will explain the Arizona guidelines and discuss your rights and obligations.
- Property division: What property was acquired during the marriage? How much is it worth? How should it be divided?
- Debt division: Like property, debts acquired during the marriage need to be divided between the parties.
- Spousal maintenance: In some divorces, one of the spouses will be awarded alimony — temporary or long-term.
- Attorney fees: How much will this cost? Your lawyer will discuss our fees with you. We want to keep your costs as low as we can.
- Procedural: Your attorney can summarize the likely procedural path your matter will take.
In addition to divorce issues, we also handle domestic violence concerns, grandparent rights, adoptions, non-parent custody and modifications to support, custody, and other divorce orders.
