Surprise Divorce Lawyers Near You

Do you know what must be proved to prevail in your case, as the petitioner or, alternatively, as the responding party or defendant? Do you understand what the standard of proof by which exhibits, testimony, and other relevant evidence must persuade the judge in order for you to prevail? Although there are a few exceptions, generally:

  • In divorces and family law cases, the standard of proof is by a preponderance of the evidence;
  • In criminal proceedings, the state must prove each element of the offense beyond a reasonable doubt; and,
  • In probate proceedings over validity of a Last Will and Testament, for instance, the standard of proof is by clear and convincing evidence.

Appreciating the ease or difficulty of proving your case is an important aspect of legal strategy. Another important consideration is which court will have jurisdiction to hear and decide, for example, the petition for dissolution of marriage, modification of child support, the appointment of a conservator for the vulnerable adult, or contentious probate litigation matter.

Every client’s legal concerns involve unique circumstances. Understanding the depth of any legal issue being addressed, having substantial courtroom experience litigating cases, and preparing successful legal stratagems are just some of the things for which our Surprise legal team is known. We go above and beyond to bring our clients the best possible results in the case, whether it be a civil family law or probate action, or defense against criminal prosecution.

Helping Clients Overcome Legal Challenges

When you need family attorney representation in your divorce or child custody case, call us. When you or someone you care about has been charged with a crime, talk to us. When you need to prepare for the future with an estate plan, consult us. Here at Stewart Law Group, our Surprise legal team goes the extra mile for every client to provide extraordinary legal representation.

Your Family Matters to Us

Our family lawyers represent clients in the full range of domestic relations cases, from uncontested divorces to high conflict child custody cases. Particularly, we have the resources and talent to handle complex divisions of property in a divorce. Including cases with extensive assets and overseas financial investments, as well as domestic business interests and professional practices.

If you have children, understand that every parent worries about the outcome of child custody proceedings in the divorce, legal separation, or annulment:

  • Will the property division in your divorce mean moving and selling the house in Surprise?
  • Will spousal maintenance be awarded?
  • Will spousal support permit a Surprise lifestyle similar to what was enjoyed during the marriage?
  • Will legal decision-making authority be shared?
  • How long does it take to settle a divorce?
  • Will your child’s education be disrupted if he or she has to change schools?
  • Should you relocate with the child or try to remain in the Surprise school district?
  • How will parenting time be scheduled?
  • Can you keep promises to take your child to the i.d.e.a. Museum and Arizona Museum of Natural History?
  • Will third-party visitation be granted to a grandparent or stepparent?
  • Which parent should the child live with most of the time?
  • Will parenting time be 50-50?
  • How much child support will be paid each month?
  • Should child support payments cover extracurricular activities like music lessons, after-school sports, and tennis lessons at Gene Autry Park?

There are many legal issues to think over, especially in a divorce with children. And since divorce proceedings can be quite a lengthy process lasting anywhere from a few months to a few years depending on whether the divorce is contested or not, it is important to understand that it’s easier to make good decisions with a balanced mindset, an understanding of the legal issues to be addressed, and an experienced divorce attorney well versed in family law to guide you all the way through the divorce proceedings.

Accentuate the Positive

As caring legal professionals, we believe our job description should include helping clients overcome legal challenges in a positive, healthful way. We want our clients and their children to be in the best position possible to move forward productively and happily with their lives.

At the Stewart Law Group, we emphasize creative legal solutions that protect our clients’ rights while resolving all outstanding issues as favorably as possible. If there is a trial, then we are prepared to litigate vigorously. We give our absolute all for our Surprise clients. Lastly, we can request an appeal of the trial court’s final judgment. Our attorneys also have appellate court experience, including persuasive oral argument and brief writing.

Personalized Solutions for Each Client

We know that every legal matter raises unique concerns and requires tailored solutions.  In defending a client charged with possession of drugs with intent to sell, for instance, our defense attorney will investigate the events leading up to and following the stop by law enforcement.

Estate planning requires a very thorough assessment of the client’s circumstances, finances, and goals, both short-term and long-term. One estate plan does not fit all! The client with a professional practice or small business in Surprise may want to prepare a business succession plan or living trust. This would be a formal plan providing a means for the family to continue operating the business after the principal retires or passes away.

When we agree to represent you, your attorney will take time to carefully analyze all related legal concerns. In a family law case, for example, we may offer recommendations for divorce counseling, independent child custody evaluators, private investigators, mediators, and more. Rest assured, we will help you navigate every challenge posed by the upcoming civil, probate, or criminal proceedings.

Whatever your circumstances, we understand how important the outcome of the case is for your future.
