Family law attorneys are the most widely used lawyers in the United States. These law firms have lawyers who are well-versed in all legal matters involving changes in family relationships from prenuptial agreements to child adoption.
Ending a marriage isn’t an easy decision and a finalized divorce has huge legal and emotional repercussions for spouses and their families. In Arizona, spouses have the option of requesting a legal separation through court orders rather than a divorce—or until they decide to divorce or reconcile.
Divorce is always a difficult process, both emotionally and legally. In the best-case scenario, divorcing spouses agree on all divorce terms, including the division of their marital assets, child custody, child support, and spousal maintenance (alimony).
The divorce process is an emotional time. Divorcing spouses may be uncertain about what’s expected of them, especially during the time period between the initial separation and the divorce hearing. Every divorce in Arizona takes time—including a mandatory 60-day waiting period—but complex, contested divorces can take months or even a year or more to finalize.
