Our approach to family law cases Unlike business individuals who can dispute, litigate, part ways, and never see each other again, family members are involved in dynamic relationships. Although divorce ends a marital relationship, connections between family members endure when children are involved. Life events bring family members in touch with each other throughout the time children are growing up and throughout their lives. Divorce needs to be controlled to separate spouses in a way that does not do irreparable damage. It is in everyoneÃ¯Â¿Â½s best interests to dissolve a marriage as amicably as possible without compromising the case. At Elkins & Associates, PLLC, it is our experience that negotiating a settlement is less damaging for families than resorting to litigationÃ¯Â¿Â½which is why settlement is our first approach to divorce and family law conflicts. Litigation in Arizona family court is a last resort Generally, by the time a couple contemplates divorce, their underlying controversies have reached an intolerable level. Taking disputes before a judge typically fuels already existing conflicts and further pits spouses against one another. Because litigation is a battle between adversaries, Tucson divorce lawyer Joy Elkins believes it should be used only when other attempts at resolution fail. You can be fairly certain that litigation leaves you with more acrimony than before you started. Some divorces cannot be resolved without going to court. Joy Elkins is an experienced trial lawyer. Whenever appropriate, she provides assertive representation to protect her clientsÃ¯Â¿Â½ rights. She is a focused and results-oriented Tucson family law attorney and an effective litigator. Custody casework Much of the firmÃ¯Â¿Â½s casework is devoted to custody cases. Joy Elkins helps divorcing couples work out custody issues and represents her clientsÃ¯Â¿Â½ interests in court, if necessary. She also handles custody cases as a court appointed advisor, best interests attorney (BIA), or as the childÃ¯Â¿Â½s attorney. Her focus on custody matters for nearly two decades has given her considerable perspective and experience in this area of law. Arrange a consultation to discuss your family issues.
