Divorce and Custody Information Website
Welcome to my
website. This website is designed to provide you with the most current divorce law information. You have likely
found your way to this site because you are either contemplating a divorce, or in the middle of the process. A divorce is
obviously a little unsettling and can provide for a fair amount of anxiety and stress. I have prepared this site to
relieve some of the angst while you go through the process. This site should provide you with the information that you
likely need to make informed decisions in choosing an attorney and related to your divorce. Starting in January of 2020,
this website will be going through a complete revision (something we do every year) to keep you informed with the most current
and updated divorce trends and laws in Arizona.
While each case is different, many divorced spouses
will tell you how disenchanted they are with the divorce system and the manner it handles a family and its issues.
An "assembly line process" accurately describes how divorces are handled in our courts, and very little attention
is placed on the emotional complexities of someone's life. To add insult to injury, divorce lawyer's fees generally
plague the system. Very few people know how to move their case to settlement without incurring tens of thousands of dollars
in fees. It doesn't have to be this way.
Everyone has heard of the "bloodbath"
divorce or simply a case that took too long and cost too much money. This all to common result can be avoided, and you
can get the results you want in the process. So, if you are a parent wanting custody of your children, or simply want what
you consider a "fair" result, these results are not fantasies, but surely can be reality with the right kind of
lawyer and right kind of approach. Looking around (online) for a lawyer is usually everyone's first step. Not
a bad idea. However, be careful and conduct your research. Selecting a lawyer shouldn't be knee-jerk or something
with the assumption that any divorce or custody lawyer will do.
Hopefully, the articles on this website will help you weed through the obstacles
of going through a divorce and help you with the pitfalls of hiring a lawyer, and give you all there is to know about the
process. If there is something you need to know, and you cannot find it on this site, please email me; I would be happy
to provide you with any information that could help.
lawyers in the area and spouses, much like you, refer to this website often. Please do so. I am currently updating
this website to accomodate attorneys and clients that have asked me to cover recent changes in the law and to account for
recent cases that have defined how Judge's handle certain situations in divorce. This new information should be helpful.
Again, take your time, and good luck in the process.
