Divorcing in Tucson or elsewhere in Arizona can be a daunting process if there are child custody issues, financial support needs, large amounts of property at stake, debt considerations or other disagreements with the other spouse. When seeking divorce advice in Tucson, the law office of attorney Steven C. Weinstein can provide you with steady guidance and support in navigating the legal process and help to ensure that you obtain the best settlement possible.
If you are involved in a contested divorce, there are a number of steps which must be taken before you get to trial. When filing divorce in Tucson or elsewhere in the state, you have to provide the court with information that includes (among other things) the length of the marriage, property and debts that you and your spouse have acquired, any children from the marriage, requests for custody or visitation orders, requests for spousal support or health insurance costs, and other items related to your marriage and financial situation.
After you file the divorce papers, you must then have them served on your spouse. Once the papers are served, your spouse will have an opportunity to respond to the divorce petition. At that point you can schedule either a default hearing (if your spouse chooses not to respond), submit to a consent decree (if you and your spouse come to an agreement on the terms of the divorce), or prepare for trial in order to determine final custody and financial issues.
Once you decide to file divorce in Tucson or elsewhere in Arizona, it is important to have an experienced attorney who can take care of the filings and plan your case in order to relieve you of added stress and ensure that you receive the best possible outcome in a divorce settlement. This is especially true if you and your spouse are estranged and there are lingering resentments. In such cases, even properly serving papers on your spouse can be an issue where a good attorney can help.
Steve brings years of experience in divorce cases to help you successfully obtain the kind of settlement that you are entitled to.
