  5. SAME-SEX FAMILY LAW —...
Our attorney, Gary Frank, has long been a staunch supporter of civil rights, including marital rights for the LGBT community. Now that same-sex marriage is finally a reality, it is important for gay and lesbian couples to understand their new rights, and how to protect themselves in the unfortunate event that a divorce or separation occurs.
 
We can help you preserve your property before a marriage takes place by preparing a Prenuptial Agreement. And we can protect you throughout the divorce process by making sure you receive a fair division of property, and that spousal maintenance is awarded if a party is entitled to it under Arizona law. If you have children, we will work hard to ensure that you come away with a legal decision-making and parenting-time plan that is in their best interests and yours, and that child support is included. 
 
If divorce is inevitable, it is always a good idea to explore peaceful alternatives as a first option, before jumping headlong into adversarial and often expensive litigation. Mediation and collaborative divorce are two such options.  Mr. Frank is a compassionate mediator with many years of experience working with families, including LGBT couples. 
 
When acting as a divorce attorney, Mr. Frank encourages his clients to engage in mediation. He will help you choose a top-notch mediator and he’ll guide you through the process, giving you the best odds of a favorable outcome. But while mediation is often successful it does not always result in a settlement, and sometimes divorcing parties have no choice but to turn to the courts to resolve their issues. In that scenario, Mr. Frank is a strong and experienced Family Law litigator who will fight to protect your interests.

Client Reviews

Very honest

November 2009 I retained Mr. Frank almost two years to represent me in a visitation modification filed by my ex-husband. Mr. Frank quickly and efficiently became familiar with my case and was very honest about all the potential results that could occur. I truly feel that Mr. Frank had my children’s best interests in mind…
