How important is it to hire a divorce lawyer in Arizona?
Divorce laws vary considerably from state to state, so how divorce law works in California is not necessarily how it works in Arizona. Although you may have a friend or family member who knows a fantastic lawyer in another state, you could actually find yourself at a steep disadvantage if you don’t hire your attorney locally. There are a few reasons for this:
- Familiarity with Arizona law: As we said, state divorce laws vary dramatically, and no lawyer has the time to be familiar with the specific details in every state. Hiring a local divorce lawyer means hiring someone with an intimate knowledge of Arizona divorce law.
- Meeting in person: You can learn a lot when you meet in person. In a complicated divorce, juggling long-distance phone calls and mailed documents can quickly become a nightmare, no matter how experienced an out-of-state lawyer may seem.
- Familiarity with your specific city or county: Beyond being familiar with Arizona state laws, hiring a local divorce lawyer who works with the judges, case managers, and other attorneys right here in Arizona can make a huge difference. We know all the quirks and unique challenges of the Arizona court system, and thus we can better explain to you what to expect.
