Divorce and Custody cases can become financially stressful for all involved. Legal fees are typically determined by the conduct of the parties and the level of disagreement in the case. Traditionally, firms charge a retainer and bill at an hourly rate. This makes the cost of representation uncertain and can result in high fees. Scott Law Offices offers flat fees as a solution to this oftentimes very expensive problem.
While a few law firms may charge a flat fee for uncontested divorce matters, Scott Law Offices has flat fee options for a variety of family law matters. Our fees are tailored to the client’s specific goals and the complexity of the issues involved.
At Scott Law Offices, we understand that every divorce carries with it a certain amount of stress. When a marriage ends, emotions run high and those involved will likely experience a great sense of loss. When served with a Petition for Dissolution of Marriage, commonly referred to as a divorce petition, one is faced with issues of property division, division of debts and the award of spousal maintenance or alimony. It is important to understand your rights to protect your best interests.
At Scott Law Offices, our clients receive personal attention from an experienced divorce attorney to meet their individual needs and to assist with the difficult sensitive issues a divorce can often bring on. We believe in setting realistic expectations and fighting for the right outcome throughout each case.
We know the uncertain outcome of court can be intimidating for those involved Christina Scott works with each individual client to assist in reaching a successful resolution of the divorce out of court. When appropriate, we will negotiate with the opposing party or their attorney to reach a partial or full divorce settlement. However, we are prepared to pursue litigation to protect your interests and the interests of your family if settlement is not an option.
Arizona is one of nine states with community property laws. Our family law office aids clients in understanding community property laws and in achieving an equitable division of the property and debts. Our firm also works towards an award of spousal maintenance when appropriate and attorney’s fees in situations where a party is maintaining unreasonable positions or there is a disparity in income. We often request temporary orders for spousal maintenance, attorney’s fees, use of the marital home and other temporary division of assets pending a final trial.
“Life can be full of surprises and although I never thought that I would need an attorney I am so thankful that I found Christina. From my experience legal issues are very stressful and mine seemed to quickly consume my life and emotions. Christina was professional, responsive and almost always available or returned my calls quickly. This was one of the best comforts that I had, knowing that she would always call me right back. She was amazing every step of the way, I felt confident in the outcome which was positive beyond my expectations. I highly recommend and although I hope I will not need to utilize her services in the future, if I did I would only have Christina Scott represent me.” – CA
