Family Law

Burguan Strickman Law, PLLC handles family law matters. Family law cases range from annulments and divorces to child support and custody. We believe that family law matters are best handled in a collaborative matter with as little contention as possible. It is important to remember that when two parents are divorcing that those parents will be in each other’s lives until their children are at least 18-years of age. We believe that the divorce process should go as smoothly as possible for your children.

Believe it or not, judges do not enjoy getting involved with settling family court matters. Therefore, we work with opposing counsel and encourage our clients to settle as much as possible prior to a court hearing. No one is happy if the judge determines custody, property, and support. As a certified mediator, attorney Brian Strickman encourages alternative dispute resolution.

Burguan Strickman Law, PLLC also draft pre-nuptial agreements and post-nuptial agreements. We draft our agreements to maximize the likelihood that a court will uphold your agreement in the unlikely event of a divorce.

Arizona is one of nine community property states in the United States. Community property primarily relies on the assumption that all property acquired while married is community property. The only property acquired during marriage that is NOT community property is generally gifts, and inheritance. Furthermore, it is likely that property that began as sole and separate property will become community property during the marriage. It is extremely important to consult an attorney if your goal is to keep each spouse’s property separate.

At Burguan Strickman Law, PLLC, we handle your matters in a low cost quality manner. Our goal is to make the process as minimally strenuous as possible.
