Our Family Law Firm's Practice Areas

Understanding Arizona statutes relating to Family Law can be daunting to anyone facing a change in marital status. Kathleen and the team at The McCarthy Law Firm are on top of any changes or issues that can affect your situation. Below are a few of the more common family law topics in which we have deep expertise. Visit our Practice Area below for a more comprehensive look at our legal services.

Dissolution of Marriage, aka Divorce, Legal Separation and Annulment. These all mean one thing: your marriage is coming to an end. We know that there are many reasons for the decision to end a marriage. The objective is to handle it the best way for your particular situation.  Although the Court’s role is defined, your personal outcome is not. We discuss all of your options and advise you from day one – from preparation to filing a petition. More

Placing a dollar value on the family business is a complex process. Most appraisers use 3 methods: book value, market value and income. Plus, under Arizona law, you must treat the business as an ongoing concern. Contact us to be sure your business house is in order prior to filing a petition for divorce.  More

Resolving property issues, community or separate, can be a messy, intricate process. Real estate, businesses, and financial accounts must all be considered. The Court can mix and match approaches to resolution. We protect your interests to assure the best possible property division outcomes.  More

When parents divorce, the first thought is how to protect and support their children. Children benefit from good parenting plans and financial support that clearly address parenting time, decision-making and financial stability. We help assure that happens. More

Whether you are an individual or married couple choosing to grow your family through a private adoption, a stepparent wishing to legally adopt your spouse’s child, or a relative, kinship, or foster placement desiring to adopt a child involved in a termination of parental rights matter, the McCarthy Law Firm will walk you through the legal adoption process with the goal of giving that child his or her “forever family.” More

Arizona law refers to spousal support as Spousal Maintenance. And there are almost as many ways to qualify for spousal support as there are to figure out how much you’ll receive. Our family law firm has handled hundreds of cases on spousal maintenance with excellent outcomes. Learn why we should help you with yours. More

Prenups and cohabitation agreements spell out how or if you will share in your partner’s assets. It’s also the perfect opportunity to make critical decisions about your future together. Contact us about a custom crafted agreement that protects you and helps define your financial relationship.  More

Better known as a restraining order, this court-issued order is a very powerful tool when you face actual violence or threats of violence within a family relationship. To shield you properly, an Order of Protection needs to include all threat events and related details. We can help assure it does. More
