Divorce is complicated, stressful and emotional.
Divorcing parties almost never truly understand how assets and debts are divided under Arizona Law. Much less how the Court handles child custody (which is actually legal decision making authority), parenting time, child support or how alimony (spousal maintenance) is decided. Well-meaning friends frequently offer well-meaning advice. But, those well-meaning friends rarely (almost never) truly understand why their divorce turned out the way it did. This usually results in bad decisions flowing from misunderstood and/or inapplicable information.
If you are going through or contemplating a divorce, even if your divorce will be completely by agreement or mediation, it is imperative that you first understand how Arizona law applies to your unique case. The choices you will have to make are extremely important. Knowing what is fair is impossible without first knowing what the outcome should be under Arizona law.
As your divorce attorney, I will reduce your stress, educate you, counsel you, and advocate for a result that is truly consistent with your best interests and the best interests of your children. I offer free consultations.
