How Can a Family Law Lawyer in Phoenix Help?

Emotions run high in family law cases. It is difficult and sometimes impossible for the parties to resolve things on their own. A family law lawyer can help you to see past the emotions, hurt, and anger to bring about a fair and equitable resolution in your divorce case. While it is possible for you to represent yourself in the family law court, it is usually not a good idea especially if the other party has retained a family law lawyer. Hiring us as your family law lawyer evens the playing field and helps to shield you from much of the stress of dealing with your ex. Your family law lawyer becomes your mouthpiece, speaking for you to protect your rights and interests.

Family Law Cases with Children

When children are involved in a family law case, emotions run much higher. No one can bear the thought of not being able to see their kids on a daily basis. If you are facing a divorce with children in Phoenix then you have probably already experienced the fear of losing time with your kids. During a divorce, children are often, sadly used as a weapon with one spouse refusing the other any visitation or using the kids in a divorce to deliver barbed messages to each other. A Phoenix family law lawyer could protect your kids from the ugliness of divorce and child custody cases in Phoenix.

Phoenix Child Support Cases

Both parents have an obligation to support their children. But, what if you and your “ex” have been struggling for months or years to make ends meet on two incomes? What happens when one household becomes two? The obvious result is your expenses double, making it very difficult for both parties to survive financially. However, this does not change your obligation to support your children. A Phoenix family law lawyer can ensure that you receive a fair and reasonable child support order in Phoenix family law court.

Division of Marital Property

Many issues arise in Phoenix divorces from disputes over property. It is important for everyone going through a divorce to understand the differences between separate personal property and marital or community property.

A Phoenix family law lawyer could help you bring all of the marital assets into the light to ensure a fair and equitable division of marital property while protecting your separate property from being misclassified as marital assets.
