What to expect when considering divorce
Phoenix Divorce Process

When facing a divorce, one encounters emotional distress, anxiety and fear of the unknown. This is not something one enjoys tackling head on. Here at Edwards & Cherney, we have been in your shoes before--we have personally gone through the struggles of divorce and now professionally assist dozens of clients navigate this complex process each year.

 

Following our first meeting, we prepare all necessary paperwork in order to commence the matter (initiation of a divorce, paternity, or custody matter) or prepare responses to a family law matter which has already been filed against you.

 

If we initiate a divorce or paternity case after filing and service, the next step examines whether we pursue temporary orders regarding: spousal support; child support; custody and parenting time, custody evaluations, primary residence/vehicle use, request for attorney's fees and costs or temporary payment of community debts.

 

The discovery phase follows thereafter. This step involves obtaining all necessary data (financial and otherwise). This is accomplished with standard discovery requests, subpoenas, live depositions, etc.

 

If it is determined that the matter cannot be resolved by mutual settlement, we shall advance to trial. In addition to understanding the legal process involved it is also important to understand the emotional process involved in a divorce.
