Question: If my Ex and I were attending Mediation and she decided it was not working out and walk out of Mediation before agreeing on anything. All I was asking for is equal time with my child. Do I need a lawyer .
Answer: Only you understand the nature of your relationship with your ex and the specific circumstances of your living arrangements. It would be a good idea to at least talk with a lawyer. A family law lawyer can help you figure out your best options for handling this emotionally charged situation. There are 3 programs in Arizona that you can use to get some inexpensive legal advice and guidance. One is the Modest Means Program. If you are financially qualified for the program, for a $75 fee, Modest Means offers a one hour consult with an attorney. If you need additional help and the attorney agrees to take your case, the fee charged will not exceed $75 per hour. The telephone number is (866)637-5341. Both the Maricopa and Pima County Bar Associations have lawyer referral programs that offer a 30 minute consult with an experienced attorney. Maricopa County's Lawyer Referral Service offers a 30 minute consult for a fee of $40. The telephone number is (602) 257-4434. Pima County's Lawyer Referral Service offers a 30 minute consultation for a fee of $35. The telephone number is (520) 623-4625.
