In Arizona, a marriage is dissolved by the Courts, which results in a Dissolution or (Divorce) of the marriage. To file in Arizona, you must be a resident of Arizona at least 90 days prior to filing and your marriage must be "irretrievably broken without any prospect of reconciliation". There are many issues that must be resolved in any Dissolution proceeding, which may include Custody of Children, Parenting Time, Child Support, Spousal Maitenance and the division of Property, Retirement Accounts and Debts. A Legal Separation resolves all the same issues as a Dissolution, only the marriage legally stays in place. At Overstreet Law we can help you resolve all of the issues a Dissolution or Separation presents.
In Arizona, Custody can be granted Jointly to the parents, who would then share in the responsibility of making major decsions on behalf of the child.(i.e. education, medical and dental). Conversely, Sole Custody is where only one parent has the authority to make those major decisions. At Overstreet Law we can help develop the facts of your case to determine what type of Custody is appropriate to request. Custody does not refer to the amount of time a parent spends with a child
Parenting Time refers to the actual time that each parent will spend with their child. There are regular schedules for day to day parenting time and then there are holidays schedules to be determined.
Family Support calculations take into account many numerical calculations and are based upon the facts of your case. The most important aspect of calculating and argueing support issues, is having the experience in determining which factors in a case will be most important and how to accentuate them.
Many people in todays enviroment have many family members who need special care and asistance. These decisions can involve setting up a Guardianship/Conservatorship.

A Conservatorship grants the same authority over a "Wards" finances and assets. If you are faced with these difficult decsions, Overstreet Law can help you take the necessary steps to provide the assistance your loved ones require.
