What Can an Arizona Family Law Attorney Do For You?

Family law encompasses all the legal issues surrounding custody, inheritance, and general disputes within the family. Matters such as divorce, spousal maintenance, custody of children, inheritance of wealth and assets, debt, and other areas involving children in public law can all be handled by an experienced family law attorney from BTL Family Law.

If you are considering pursuing a divorce, establishing your parenting time, child support modification, child custody, dividing marital assets, or any other family law issue (including father rights), it is important to get your case started off on the right path. During a consultation, you will meet with one of our family law lawyers. They will listen carefully to your concerns and let you know your rights under Arizona Law. The attorney will then tell you their plan to help you achieve your goals and how our office can help you navigate the court system.

Our clients are our first priority. If you are located anywhere in Scottsdale or in Maricopa County, you will be in good hands with the legal team at BTL Family Law.

We refer to our consultations as “no pressure” consultations. We understand that who you choose to represent you in your matter is a deeply personal decision. During your consultation, our lawyers will not pressure you into moving forward. We are here when you need us. Many of our clients simply schedule a consultation to gather information and sometimes do not decide to move forward for several months.

We understand that family law involves dealing with some of the most personal and sensitive aspects of our clients’ lives, and we approach these delicately, maintaining the utmost professionalism and confidentiality while helping clients take a proactive approach toward concrete solutions.

Frequently Asked Questions About Family Law in Scottsdale, AZ

No. In Arizona, parties can divorce without ever having to appear in court so long as they can reach a settlement without court intervention. The court may set a Resolution Management Conference “RMC”—or an Early Resolution Conference “ERC” if neither party is represented by an attorney—early in the case. An RMC aims to facilitate agreements between the parties and is a touch point for the court to ensure the case is moving forward. But, this hearing can usually be avoided, too, if a settlement has been reached in the case.

Arizona does not use the term Alimony to identify spousal support in a divorce. Rather, Arizona refers to spousal support as spousal maintenance. The court may grant an award of spousal maintenance for one spouse if the court finds the spouse asking for the award of maintenance meets one of the factors under A.R.S. §319(A). The court determines the amount of the award and the duration of the award using the factors in A.R.S. §25-319(B). At the time of writing this section, the committee is in the process of writing the guidelines related to the 319(B) factors but they have not been published yet.

Typically, Arizona divorce lawyers charge between $250.00 and $450.00 per hour. There may be some that charge more or less than that, and there are some lawyers who charge a flat fee. Attorneys and law firms set their own billing rates and fee structures guided by industry standards, their specific experience, and the professional rules of conduct.

No, you do not need a divorce attorney in Arizona. Parties can represent themselves during an Arizona divorce. The Superior Court has developed significant resources to help parties who want to proceed without representation. Here is a link to the Maricopa County Family Court Forms. There are additional resources offered through the court, including workshops. Other counties also have resources available, so if you are considering proceeding without representation, be sure to do a thorough search online for what may be available.

Consider at least having a consultation with an attorney experienced in Arizona divorce. Divorce can be more complicated than people think, and there are issues that, if not correctly pleaded, could be lost. Consider consulting with an attorney before handling a divorce on your own to make sure you are proceeding appropriately.
