You will find so many divorce lawyers in Tucson. Head on over to Avvo.com and enter “divorce” as the practice area and then enter Tucson Arizona and click Search. You’ll get an extended listing of divorce lawyers in and near Tucson.
You’ll observe that all those lawyers look and sound the same. They will all let you know in their short identical Avvo blurbs that they’re “compassionate,” “aggressive,” “good listeners,” “blah…blah.” Whatever they believe you wish to hear, that’s what they’ll say.
If you click right through to the websites of these lawyers , that won’t help either. They all have the same cookie-cutter websites.
They all look and sound the same. They all inform you about various almost identical qualities about themselves. The problem is that not one of them can prove a single claim they make. You do not want to know any of that noise. If they don’t really prove it, it means nothing. “I think I’m a real great guy, and you should too.” is not a very wise legal advertisement for a lawyer.
Let your spouse have that weak lawyer. You want an attorney of proven higher quality to protect your legal and economic interests. You want the best divorce lawyer in Tucson.
To be clear, there’s absolutely nothing wrong with a lawyer having an Avvo account, a Yelp Account, a LegalZoom account or a Google My Business page. What’s wrong is when they ONLY have those accounts and do not position themselves professionally to stand out from the lawyer-crowd.
You should also be aware that the prominent Avvo Rating displayed in each lawyer’s profile has practically nothing to do with the particular performance of the individual lawyer. It’s not based, as Avvo wants you to believe, upon client testimonials or any type of performance metric by that lawyer. It is dependent on “peer recommendations.” Avvo tells you that should you hover over the small information icon next to the rating.
So because other divorce lawyers in Tucson are obviously not going to create testimonials for their divorce lawyer competitor, lawyers in various fields of legal practice dishonestly trade recommendations with each other.
So a local DUI lawyer who does not have any necessary knowledge about the lawyer s/he is recommending for divorce will write a great testimonial about some non-competitive divorce lawyer in trade for an equally dishonest and meaningless testimonial by that divorce lawyer about his or her DUI practice.
Don’t get fooled. The Avvo Rating doesn’t let you know how good or affordable any lawyer actually is.
And yes, you do want a cheap divorce lawyer providing your divorce is uncontested. Cheap divorce lawyers tend to be good divorce lawyers because they tend to handle a lot of divorce and other family law matters. So you can certainly tell your friends that you found an affordable divorce lawyer through 1-800-DIVORCE, but let’s face it, if you have an uncontested divorce, you WANT a cheap divorce lawyer.
You can also observe that a number of these divorce lawyer’s websites are “jack-of-all-trades” websites. You may have found them on Avvo’s divorce page, but many of these lawyers also handle bankruptcy, DUI, personal injury, crime, car-wreck, immigration, social security disability, etc. They’re telling you, “Hey, we do a|little bit of everything. Please hire us for something.”
You want a divorce lawyer who handles only family law matters. You do not want your Tucson divorce lawyer to pick up the telephone to you when she’s just been working on a criminal record expungement or a social security disability case. Those are different specializations involving different laws and thought processes.
So right now, as you read this, only you know what’s involved in your impending divorce or family law case.
Armed with this personal knowledge, you’re looking for a local Tucson divorce lawyer who shows you some sort of unique spark – some creative problem-solving indication that demonstrates his or her abilities. Again, don’t listen to what the lawyer informs you about himself or herself. That kind of self-praise means nothing to you. It may be accurate, but it could not be. You are searching for clear reliable proof.
Also, keep in mind that you do not have to find the best divorce lawyer in Tucson. No-one knows who that is anyway. You’ll need to find the best Tucson divorce lawyer FOR YOU!!
How to find YOUR divorce lawyer? Look at how each divorce lawyer handles his or her law practice. Why? Because that’s how s/he will handle your divorce or other family law case.
It’s reasonable to assume that the way in which business people (like lawyers) handle the problems and challenges in their very own businesses would be the way s/he handles the problems and challenges in your case.
People generally bring exactly the same knowledge, intellect, analysis and incentive to each and every problem that faces them. So just how each lawyer positions and promotes his or her own law practice would have been a strong indication of how s/he will conduct your case.
Why would you hire a lawyer to handle your own personal legal and economic interests when they don’t even look after their very own business interests?
So look carefully at each lawyer. If they ONLY stand in line at Avvo with a bogus rating, leave them alone. If they represent themselves only on a cookie-cutter website and only with self-praise, leave them alone. There is no dynamic or creative insight or spark in this lawyer.
So what’s a good example of a lawyer who represents himself or herself well? How about a divorce lawyer who has seized the best family law brand in the whole world? How about a divorce lawyer who has secured the 1-800-DIVORCE brand to the exclusion of all other divorce lawyers in Tucson? How about a divorce lawyer who is smart enough to have one single word as his or her brand, firm name and forever memorable contact number?
Isn’t that the sort of dynamic problem-solving divorce lawyer you’re searching for?
You do not want to hire a “jack-of-all-trades” lawyer . Also, you do not want to hire a non-descript lawyer who just blends in with every other divorce lawyer in Pima County. Instead, you want a lawyer who handles his or her own law practice business boldly because that means s/he will look after your interests the same way.
However, there’s even more. 1-800-DIVORCE is not just the best divorce marketing brand on the planet. Think about what else 1-800-DIVORCE means – to you AND to your 1-800-DIVORCE lawyer.
1-800-DIVORCE brings your local 1-800-DIVORCE lawyer more divorces than their local competitors. Lawyers who handle a lot of divorces tend to become better at it than their local competitors. You definitely want a busy divorce lawyer who is experienced in divorce and knows what s/he is doing.
1-800-DIVORCE also has a cost component. The brand brings 1-800-DIVORCE lawyers divorces at a lower cost of case acquisition than their local competitors pay. This means your local 1-800-DIVORCE lawyer is LIKELY to request lower fees.
Many also offer flat fee a la carte service packages like a document review package, where you will not only have your total fee up-front but also pay only for the services your case actually requires.
Most 1-800-DIVORCE lawyers also offer free initial case strategy sessions.
However, maybe the best financial indicator for you to take advantage of is that due to the word of mouth factor of 1-800-DIVORCE, it is a referral goldmine. What will you say to a friend or relative who is in need of the same help in the future? You’ll just be able to say, “Call 1-800-DIVORCE. They looked after me.” And that’s the gold for the lawyer – a free case. That and all of your other referrals (and the referrals from your referrals) are the icing on the cake to your local 1-800-DIVORCE lawyer for many years to come. S/he WANTS that free business.
Your 1-800-DIVORCE referrals are what bring your local 1-800-DIVORCE lawyer’s cost of case acquisition way down. They may get 2, 3, 6 divorce cases for the cost of one (yours). And that’s why they signed up. And you know that, and they know that, and they hope you know that.
So use that knowledge to your advantage. Make sure that your 1-800-DIVORCE lawyer knows that you will refer friends and relatives to him or her through 1-800-DIVORCE but that you want a very good job done in your divorce.
Only a great job will bring those free referrals. You do not have to be nasty or mean about that fact. Just state it as a business proposition. Your 1-800-DIVORCE lawyer will know it’s true. Tell him or her that you know a lot of people.
If your local 1-800-DIVORCE lawyer didn’t have 1-800-DIVORCE, how would you refer people to him or her. You’ll forget his or her name and you’ll lose his or her email address. In 2 or 5 years, you’ll never remember, but you’ll never forget 1-800-DIVORCE.

Following are perhaps the most frequent secondary family law service offerings, which is not to say that they are any less important.
If there are minor children, then the issues of child custody and visitation/parenting must be resolved and be the subject of court orders.
Child custody is always regarded by the court to be more important than a divorce itself or any other issues such as property division. Obviously, child custody can be stressful issues for the parties.
To get a child custody case assessment and a better impression of what the probable outcome of a child custody and parenting litigation would likely be, call 1-800-DIVORCE or submit the form below.
The topic of child support is also potentially emotional. Frequently, it is also a matter of economic survival as well as just plain fairness.
No matter whether your child support topic is a matter of determining the correct or fair dollar figure of child support to be paid, based upon the incomes of the parties and the ratios of primary physical custody of each party or if it is a situation of either confirming or modification of an existing child support amount, your near-me 1-800-DIVORCE lawyer in Tucson has you covered.

Usually in a long term marriage, but also in other marriages, depending on circumstances, spousal support can be an important issue. It will be the job of the court to make sure that the financial outcomes of the spouses after the divorce is final are maintained as much as is feasible identical to the financial standard of living the spouses enjoyed during the marriage.
For a free spousal support assessment, call 1-800-DIVORCE or submit the form below.
Even when spouses disagree, a divorce doesn’t have to mean an expensive trial. For many couples, divorce mediation is an much better and more cost-effective alternative to expensive litigation.
In divorce mediation, you both confer with a trained, un-biased mediator to weigh up and finalize the areas of disagreement in your case. Such sessions often take place in an informal office situation, but you might alternatively be able to do your mediation online.

Uncontested divorces are those in which both parties agree they want to dissolve their marriage and that neither spouse will contest the case or any of its constituent parts.
In almost all instances, the divorce process for uncontested divorces can be completed much sooner than in contested divorces.
You may sue for divorce believing the proceeding will be uncontested, but find later that your spouse will. This doesn’t happen frequently, but it does happen consistently
You should ask your 1-800-DIVORCE lawyer about the availability of flat-fee unbundled services in an uncontested divorce. These are not appropriate in ALL uncontested divorces.
The important consideration in uncontested divorces is to have an experienced and affordable lawyer on your team from the start just in case your uncontested divorce becomes contested or requires some extra family law services.
