Family Law

A Family Law Attorney For You

If you are dealing with a legal issue involving your family, this may be the first time you have had to deal with the court system. That inexperience can be costly. The outcome of your case can affect your property, your relationships and your future financial obligations.

You do not have to navigate the legal system alone. At the Petersen Law Firm, PLLC, in Tucson, Arizona, I can assist you in a broad range of family law issues such as divorce, child custody and support, prenuptial agreements and modifications of divorce orders. I represent married couples, unmarried parents and same-sex couples.

The following pages provide more information about family law:

  • Divorce: Divorce doesn’t have to be a difficult process in Arizona. If you want to obtain an uncontested divorce, I can help you renegotiate a fair outcome. If your spouse is unreasonable, I will be the strongest possible advocate for your position.
  • Child custody and support: In the past, Arizona favored mothers in issues such as child custody and support; today, men have equal standing. I represent both men and women in child custody and visitation disputes. I also handle modifications of custody and support if there is a change in your circumstances.
  • Paternity actions: I represent both men and women in paternity cases and related actions to establish child support and parenting time.
  • Domestic abuse and protection orders: I represent clients who need protection, as well as those who are accused of abuse. For a person accused of domestic abuse, the consequences can be devastating.
