Family law is an emotionally-charged area that requires lawyers who are sensitive to the nature of domestic relations issues and their impact on all affected parties, especially children.
The Family Law team at Dickinson Wright is among the most experienced and respected. Most of the team's lawyers are certified family law specialists and together possess more than 100 years of combined experience. Practicing throughout the U.S., we have developed the largest domestic relations practice in the State of Arizona.
We help our clients with the full range of domestic relations issues, including: divorce, child custody and parenting time, pre-marital and postnuptial agreements, cohabitation agreements, spousal maintenance and child support, paternity and interstate and international family law matters. We are particularly experienced in resolving business and professional valuation disputes. Our objective is always to help our clients solve problems, not create or exacerbate them.
Whenever possible, we encourage out-of-court settlements. Our experience shows that most contested cases can be settled effectively in this way. When litigation is necessary, however, our clients benefit from our team’s extensive experience in state courts and in private mediation and arbitration as well as the resources of a full-service law firm.
In complex divorce cases, our clients can rest assured that our team has in-depth knowledge of the laws related to child custody and property issues as well as all related areas of law. These include tax, pension and retirement funds, estate planning and probate, bankruptcy law, business and corporate matters and tort litigation.
Among our areas of family law expertise are:
