What Are Your Rights?

Perhaps the best service we offer our clients is a sense of perspective. While we’re helping you meet the immediate problems that your divorce case might present, we are committed to keeping you focused on your long-term objectives for yourself and your children.

At the law firm of John Bednarz, P.C., we want to help you define your goals and identify your rights and responsibilities. We will also help you identify options that you might not have known about and how they may be beneficial for your situation.

Options For Legal Separation Or Uncontested Divorce

Some people find that there are good reasons to stay technically married but to live apart on stipulated terms. Legal separation under Arizona law can meet that need and function just like divorce, provided that the spouses can agree on all the main issues: child custody and support, parenting time, division of property and debts, and spousal maintenance (alimony). If any issues remain under dispute, the legal separation action turns into a divorce.

Similarly, uncontested divorce can save you substantial time and expense in bringing your marriage to an end. As in separation, there must be no outstanding issues for an uncontested divorce to be accepted by the court. We can advise you about the legal formalities, but more importantly, we can help you make sure that your proposed agreements reflect your actual objectives and the best interests of your children.

Experienced Help With Negotiation

Much of a divorce attorney’s work involves advising about the best ways to protect your interests while making it unnecessary to take your case to court. We have decades of litigation experience but our clients appreciate our ability to reduce the stress, time and expense of divorce litigation by effective negotiations to achieve their goals.
