”I’ve litigated against Craig – in fact, we had a really challenging case against each other. My mind changed about him when we had a collaborative law case against each other. He’s fair, he negotiates with energy but he doesn’t manufacture conflict just to run up fees. A lot of lawyers will do this but Craig does the right thing. I recently watched Craig devote time, unpaid, on a Sunday to someone who desperately needed his fair, even-handed and stable approach. Wow. Good lawyer and better person.”
"I cant express how delighted I was with Craig Cherney and his team. My representation was professional, concise and far exceeded any of my expectations for the process of divorce. Craig's team introduced us to the Collaborative divorce process, and I couldn't be happier with the outcome. I was able to walk away knowing my needs were met and I believe we both felt the process was fair and balanced. Thank you!"
"I have used both Craig and John for a variety of legal issues. From post divorce issues to real estate issues to help setting up liability waivers for one of my companies. They have always treated me fairly and with respect, and their knowledge base is unparalleled. I recommend this law group to any my family, friends and business associates."
"Craig Chaney and all the attorneys and paralegals at Canterbury law Group were not only helpful with my divorse but everyone there makes you feel comfortable by showing how much they care for their clients and their situations. They listen and help find the best solutions without emptying your pockets. I would recommend Canterbury Law Group to everyone I know that needs any kind of legal help."
"If you are involved in a divorce with a high conflict personality, go see Craig at Canterbury for help. Having seen both ends of the spectrum - from the usual separation angst that dissipates in months to a full blown pathological fixation that meets DSMV criteria - he will proceed carefully and thoughtfully, looking out for you and your children's best interests each step of the way and responding appropriately to the level of dysfunction you are forced to endure."

Collaborative divorce, also known as collaborative law, is a legal process allowing couples who have decided to end their marriage to collaboratively work with a team of family law professionals in order to achieve a settlement that meets the needs of both parties and children without the threat of litigation.
A divorce mediator is a neutral 3rd-party that attempts to further legal negotiations between spouses who are getting divorced. If you and your spouse cannot come to agreeable terms on your own, you may call for the services of a divorce mediator. Handle divorce out-of-court and for a lower cost.
An uncontested divorce is frequently a great deal easier and more cost efficient than a divorce which is contested because there is no need for constant negotiations between the spouses, lawyers, court hearings and other legal posturing. Hence, there are usually far lower legal fees and a lot less stress.
In a contested divorce in Scottsdale is exactly what it sounds like: one or both spouses can’t come to an agreement, and they litigate and fight parts of their divorce. This type of divorce takes far longer to complete and usually involves more stress and substantially higher legal fees and costs (e.g. expert witnesses).

Arizona law requires that the best interest of the child be the lead consideration above any other.
