Going through a divorce is a difficult time for most couples in Maricopa, AZ. It is also a time where a lot of crucial and very far-reaching decisions have to be made. In some cases, even if it is a difficult time, couples may be able to agree on most issues on their own and work with an attorney to draft a divorce that includes their agreed-upon terms.
In reality, most divorces have areas where the couple has disagreements. In these cases, and when other issues are present, having an experienced family law lawyer to represent your best interests is critical.
High Levels of Conflict
When the relationship is extremely challenging, and there is a lot of conflict, working it through with a family law lawyer eliminates your need to be in communication with the ex-spouse. Instead, the attorneys for both parties can work together to address any issues and to negotiate a settlement.
In Maricopa, AZ, couples may be ordered to complete divorce mediation, particularly if child custody or disputes about the children are the cause of the conflict. In these meditations, your attorney will work on your behalf to attempt to create a fair settlement for you, your spouse, and in the best interests of the children.
Issues with Assets
Sometimes, in a marriage, one partner may have more control over the finances, investments, assets, and the property owned by the couple. When this is the case, it is essential to work with a family law lawyer to prevent the spouse with control from hiding or moving assets and money to shield it from being included in the divorce.
It is also essential to work with a family lawyer from Alexander Law Offices in cases where there has been any type of physical or emotional abuse in the relationship. The attorney can be instrumental in obtaining protective orders for the spouse and the children, if necessary, during the separation, divorce, or post-divorce.
