Family Court in Gilbert, Arizona
Singer Pistiner, P.C. often helps clients to try to resolve as many issues as possible outside of family court. For example, in situations where you are dissolving your marriage, it is generally best if you are able to negotiate on the issues of parenting time, custody and support outside of court rather than having a judge make the most personal and important decisions of your life.
There are times, however, when going to court is necessary. If you’re adopting a child, if you cannot agree on divorce issues or if you need to modify a custody or support order, you’ll need to go to family court. You’ll need to go to your own local court within your county, which means that if you live in Gilbert, Arizona, family law issues will be decided in the family court division of the Superior Court in Maricopa County.
If you are going to family court, you should talk with Singer Pistiner, P.C. first to find out how our legal team can advocate for you and help you to make strong arguments for your preferred outcomes to family law matters.
