Caring Legal Advocates Advise Clients Going Through A Divorce
In Pima County and other parts of Arizona, we are dedicated legal advocates in cases relating to:
- Divorce – We work closely with our clients to safeguard their legal interests during the divorce process in Tucson. In many cases, we can minimize the expense and aggravation that is often associated with ending a marriage through skillful negotiation. However, when disputes over spousal maintenance (formerly alimony), property division or parenting matters cannot be worked out, we construct the strongest possible argument for an appropriate outcome and litigate the matter before the court.
- Child custody – Parenting time and legal decision-making arrangements usually work best when both parents come to a mutual agreement regarding issues such as child custody decision making authority and parenting time. If this cannot be accomplished, and as Arizona law usually favors shared responsibilities unless one of the parents can be proven to be a risk to the children or unfit in some capacity or another to equally parent, our attorneys will be there to listen and to protect you and your family and to defend you in the best interest of your children. Our team of supportive lawyers have successfully represented hundreds of parents going through a division of custody, a divorce, or who have been targeted by the Arizona Department of Child Protective Services and Safety (DCS). We will be there to support you and your family’s interests, and we will be prepared to go to court and litigate in the best interest of your children, if needed.
- Child support – Our firm advises clients on payments that are required when parents of minor children no longer live together. Based on each parent’s income, time spent housing the child, and other factors, we can assess what the child support rate will be. If complications arise, we can help you seek modification of an existing order or initiate an enforcement proceeding.
At every stage of your matter, our dedicated attorneys take great care to keep you apprised of developments so that you can make informed decisions and maintain control over litigation costs. Whenever possible, we strive to resolve issues outside of court to save you time and money.
