Family law is one of the ways in which most Peoria, Arizona residents have their first and only interaction with the Arizona legal system. Whether it is a divorce, child custody dispute or demand for enforcement of child support obligations, family law encompasses nearly all disputes and issues that arise among family members.

Family Court is a part of the Arizona civil court system. Family Court judges have broad powers to decide matters of law and equity. They are authorized to review facts and laws and render decisions that are based on not only the statutes and regulations of our state but also based on fundamental fairness.
While all the same basic court rules and procedural rules apply in Family Court, they tend to be relaxed. Judges in other courts may be reluctant to hear certain arguments, or they may require rigid application of rules. However, Family Court judges often must decide issues such as whether a child should attend a particular school or have a liberal amount of parenting time with a loved one. As a result, they are more willing than other courts to allow flexibility.
Most experienced practitioners will agree that the best way to resolve a divorce, child custody dispute or other family law matter is through skilled negotiations or through use of mediation, which is a confidential process that encourages collaboration and cooperation.
