Why Choose Cosmas Onyia, P.C. for Your Divorce in Phoenix

Experience in Arizona community property laws

Most things you and your spouse acquired during your marriage are considered “community property”, i.e., you both own them 50-50. But Arizona law also allows for “separate property.” The lines between community and separate property can be blurred and that is where our knowledge and experience can be invaluable. Attorney Cosmas Onyia will account for all factors to achieve a favorable property division while ensuring accurate asset and debt valuation, and accounting for potential tax implications. 

Custody and support strategies to protect your child’s best interests

In Arizona, child custody and visitation are determined by what is in the “best interest of the child.” Calculating child support payments can also be tricky. Decisions become more complicated if your child has special needs that require extra expenses, if your work schedule is unconventional, or if you are worried about your child’s safety during visits to the other parent. We can help you draft a parenting plan that addresses all these concerns and build a case solid enough to get you the best possible arrangements.
