Welcome to State 48 Law Firm
Family law is a unique area of the law, that requires experienced attorneys with an attention to detail. We can help you with most family law issues, and we thrive in complex cases.
We offer full service legal representation for divorce in Arizona. Our experienced attorneys handle all types of divorce matters, from simple divorces to complex litigation involving children and high-assets and same-sex divorces to gray divorces.
Nothing is more important to you than your child. You want to spend time with your child, love your child, and protect your child. And these are generally the same reasons why people to go to Court for a custody case.
You are not alone in this situation. We understand how difficult and frustrating it is for fathers to have their child kept from them. This is especially true when it seems like she is doing for no good reason—or just out of spite.
The good news is, most agreements and orders can be changed. You can modify parenting time, legal decision-making, child support, and spousal maintenance in a few different ways. But modifications depend on the language in the agreements.
The most common reason for an appeal is when the judge applies the law incorrectly. This can mean they misinterpreted the statute or made a ruling based on the wrong legal standards. Our attorneys have successfully argued many cases in the Court of Appeals.
Before scheduling a consultation, we like to get to know our clients first. When you contact us, you will speak directly with an attorney. We will discuss the background of your matter and help you understand the legal process. During this call we will determine how we can help you.
You will meet with one of our attorneys to discuss the details of your matter and to review your legal options. Once you understand your options, we will discuss your next steps and you decide if you want us to help you. The initial consultation is a low pressure meeting to provide you the information you need to make the best decision for you.
After you decide you want our help, we will create a detailed game plan outlining our strategy, next steps, and your goals. You will review the plan, make any adjustments or changes, and once you approve, we will get to work for you. We will continue to provide you updates and adjust the game plan as needed.
The amount of work we need to do is dependent on many factors. Mainly, your case type, the issues, agreements, opposing party, opposing counsel, experts required, and your cooperation will all have an impact on the duration and cost of your case. Settlement and negotiation are the least stressful and most cost-effective way to resolve your matter.
When you are in the middle of it, you may feel like it will ever end. But rest assured, the issues will be resolved. The resolution can come in the form of agreements or through a court order. That will depend on you and the opposing party. We typically recommend resolving your issues through settlement, because it allows you to dictate the terms and avoid leaving the final decisions in the hands of the judge. When settlement isn’t possible, a trial may be required and the judge will determine the final terms of your matter.
We are divorce and custody attorneys who believe in the Golden Rule. Everyone has been in a difficult situation where there are no easy answers. We recognize that not knowing what to do next can be unsettling. We know that most people have little experience with lawyers and even less experience with family law. And we know what it’s like to need guidance and advice. That’s why we appreciate the opportunity to help our clients and their families through challenging times.
We focus on providing the best family law legal representation combined with the best customer service. Our communication sets us apart. We know effective communication can alleviate many of the stresses and pressures a family matter creates. You will be well informed about the process from start to finish. We will continuously update our strategy and approach to meet your needs. We will use knowledge, experience, and hard work to achieve what is most important to you.
