Family Law & Divorce Representation in Ahwatukee

Divorce with or Without Children  – If you and your spouse believe that you have reached the end of your marriage and want to file for divorce, getting help from an experienced family law attorney is critical.  Regardless of whether you will be going through a dissolution of marriage with or without children, a divorce lawyer can help you avoid mistakes that could potentially harm your future and interests. In any divorce, there are multiple factors that each person needs to know about, and could use the help of a family law firm that is compassionate and will stop at nothing until the client receives the best possible outcome.

Community Property & Dividing Assets – Whether or not your divorce involves minor children, you will have to decide how your assets and debts should be divided upon divorce. Property division can be very complex in Arizona divorce cases, making it essential for you to seek help from a qualified divorce and property division attorney at Colburn Hintze Maletta. To determine how to equally divide property and assets during a divorce, there are many elements that family law courts or mediators will look at.

Child Custody & Parenting-tIme – Child custody disputes can be one of the most difficult situations for a parent to navigate. They can be time-consuming and often involve heightened emotional conflicts between the parents (and potentially even children as well). Whether your custody dispute is a part of a divorce, or you and the other parent were never married, you should talk to an experienced child custody lawyer at Colburn Hintze Maletta for assistance with your case.

Child Support – When a child’s parents separate (i.e no longer live together), the court may issue orders for child support. The purpose of child support is to establish a standard of support for children consistent with their reasonable needs and the parents’ ability to pay. Child support is ordered to provide children with a similar upbringing to what they might have received if their parents had remained together.

Same-Sex Marriage Divorce – Same-sex marriage first became legal in Arizona in 2014 after the state’s decision not to file an appeal of a federal court’s ruling that the state’s constitutional amendment that barred same-sex marriage was unconstitutional. In 2015, the Supreme Court of the United States followed with its decision in Obergefell v. Hodges, 132 S. Ct. 2071 (2015), which made same-sex marriage legal in all 50 states.

Contested & Uncontested Divorce When people file for divorce in Arizona, not all cases end up in litigation. Some divorce petitions are uncontested, allowing the parties to get divorced without going through divorce a trial. An uncontested divorce is also much faster and less expensive than a contested divorce. In some instances, the parties can even finalize their divorce without ever stepping foot in a courtroom.

Spousal Support (Alimony) – When people file for divorce in Arizona, either spouse can ask the court for spousal support or maintenance. However, the court will not automatically order you or your spouse to pay alimony simply because it is requested. Instead, there are a multiple of factors that judges consider when determining whether or not to award spousal maintenance.  For example, a judge may order spousal maintenance when the lower-earning spouse needs help to get on his or her feet by completing training or education.

Protection Order (Restraining Order) – If you want to get a protective order, also known as a restraining order in Arizona, you need to understand what a protective order is and the types of protection it provides. Protective orders in Arizona are designed to restrain the subjects from harassing or perpetrating domestic violence against specific people or groups of individuals.
