We Take Sides... Yours!

A Personal Note

As of the posting of this message, I have practiced family law for approximately 14 years.  I thought litigation would be interesting, exhilarating, and challenging.  I was right.  I did not anticipate the emotional and financial hardship that it created for Arizona families.  Divorce, Legal Separations, establishing parental rights does not and should not be the “War of the Century”.  There is a better way.  I invested my time and money to become collaboratively trained and I am now pleased to offer this as well as mediation versus litigation.

Your case may require litigation, but I urge you to consider collaboration or mediation.  Many people “want their day in court” and firmly believe that the judicial officer will “see it their way”.  Unfortunately, often that is simply not the case.  Generally, the family law attorney knows more about family law than the judicial officer.  Family court is generally the starting point for newly appointed judicial officers.

You have an opportunity to guide your future with collaboration or mediation.  You hand over your property, children, money, et cetera to a complete stranger when you litigate.  Whatever your situation is now at one time you likely invested time and money into a relationship that you now want to terminate.  Consider collaborative and mediation, similarly, make the investment to methodically and wisely transition into your next chapter of life without the negative impact and risk associated with litigation.

After speaking to several attorneys about regaining custody of our grandson we choose Angela. She was able to achieve in 5 months what most attorneys told us would be long and costly process. We can not thank her enough!

Choosing a Divorce Attorney in Phoenix

At Enholm Law, PLLC, we pride ourselves on having attorneys that deal with the client problems when the client needs us and not when it is convenient for the divorce attorney. First, find someone that you can get a hold of if you need them. About 50% of our clients who have dealt with another firm state their number one complaint was they could not get a hold of their attorney.

Second, find someone that you like and can relate to. Yes, your Phoenix divorce attorney is going to have to be good, competent, and get you what you want; however, if you are not able to relate to them, communication barriers will form and can hinder your overall case results. At Enholm Law, PLLC we offer initial consultations so that you can get to know the Firm and our philosophies. This provides our clients with an opportunity to find out why we are the best fit for them.

Third, a divorce lawyer's case load to support staff ratio can directly affect their time allocation to your case. If the attorney has 2 clients there may be a good reason for it and you should follow up with some hard questions to decide if the firm can handle your case. Similarly, if they have 150 clients they may not have the resources to give your case the attention it deserves. Our Phoenix divorce attorneys have small caseloads, which allow them to adequately litigate, or settle your important legal issues. Additionally, our client’s primary contact is their attorney, not a paralegal or legal assistant, so that hard questions can be answered quickly and immediate action can be taken.

Fourth, ask them how much your case is going to cost. Divorce lawyers hate this question and for some reason the legal industry is one of the few in which consumers rarely get a firm quote. For example you would not hire a contractor to build a house if he told you he did not know what it would cost but needed a bunch of money upfront and would call you if he needed more. Although I agree that not all cases can be done on a flat fee, an attorney should have an average or ballpark figure so that you fully understand the costs involved. At Enholm Law, PLLC, we provide great legal representation and counseling to our clients. We offer flat fee, and hourly fees that fit our client’s needs.

Although this list could go on for days the importance is to make sure you understand what the law firm that you hire is going to deliver and what they require from you.

Phoenix Family Law Considerations | Child Custody

Parenting Time

Parenting time is simply the time each parent has to spend with their children for visitation. The court attempts to make rulings that provide equal, meaningful and frequent contact. Matters such as the distance between the two homes are taken into account by the court. The court always focuses on the bests interests of the child as outlined in ARS 25-403 Best Interest of the Child. For the Arizona Family Law procedures we follow concerning parenting time at Enholm Law, PLLC, please read our full article on Phoenix Parenting Time Attorney.

Legal Decision Making

Legal decision making about who makes all of the important decisions for your child. Arizona Family Law offers three possible scenarios for this. These could be joint legal decision making, sole legal decision making or joint legal decision making with one parent having the final say. The court does make every attempt to encourage both parents to be involved in this process and will often mandate counseling, mediation or high conflict resolution classes to help parents who are at odds over this area. The Phoenix family law standards we follow can be found in our article entitled Phoenix Legal Decision Making Attorney.
