Aggressive Advocacy During the Divorce Process
Our Phoenix family law attorneys can help you understand every aspect of the divorce process. From answering questions about how long the process takes and helping you take quick and effective action, to gathering necessary documents and filing the divorce petition, our legal team is on your side every step of the way. We can also help with putting in place temporary child support or spousal maintenance while the divorce is pending. During the divorce process, we focus on negotiating an outcome that you control. While the length of the process depends on the parties, the judge assigned to your case, and the complexity of the matters you face, we will work to make the process as smooth as possible.
When Children Are Involved
We can help you make the decisions that are right for your family. If children are involved, we will help you resolve child custody and visitation, which is one of the major issues in a divorce. In Arizona, courts determine child custody according to the “best interests of the child.” It’s important to have a strong lawyer on your side to make sure that the judge understands what your child’s best interests really are.
We also help parents determine child support issues under the Arizona Child Support Guidelines. Interpreting these guidelines can be complicated, especially when it is difficult to identify parents’ true gross income because of family-owned businesses, professional practices, or variable bonus structures. At Rader, Sheldon & Stoutner, PLLC, we can help protect your interests in child support determinations.

If you or your spouse is in the military or has served in the past, dividing a military pension and determining child custody require special knowledge. At Rader, Sheldon & Stoutner, PLLC, we represent clients stationed at Arizona bases, and we have the experience necessary to resolve military divorce issues. Our divorce attorneys are aware of the complex state and federal laws applying to military members, including the Servicemembers Civil Relief Act (SCRA).
