The Sampair Group
My custody trial was today. When we left the courthouse, I told Mr. Sampair that I would never be able to thank him enough for what he did for my son and me. He replied that I actually could, if I would go online and write a review about my experience. So this is the first time I have ever written an online review.When my baby-mama and I split up two years ago, I felt that I did not need an attorney and represented myself in the initial custody case. Even though I did get “joint custody,” I really got hosed, barely getting to spend any “parenting time” with my son. The judge was not very nice to me at all. I got nailed on child support and even back child support!Earlier this year, when my baby-mama told me she was moving to California with her boyfriend and my son, I knew I needed real help. I knew that I would regret representing myself for sure this time. I saw an advertisement for The Sampair Group and went in see Mr. Sampair. He reviewed the papers that I had been served with and explained my rights to me. He explained the process and what I had to prove to prevent her from talking my son away.Mr. Sampair filed paperwork with the court and was able to stop her from taking our son until after the trial. Since my ex insisted on going to California right away with her boyfriend, the judge gave me temporary custody until the trial and she got visitation rights!At the trial, Mr. Sampair was able to turn my baby-mama into my best witness. He turned everything she said around and made all of her statements look good for my case. Before it was over, he got her to admit that she thought that her boyfriend would be a better daddy then me and that she was trying to move away to start a new life with my child that did not include me. We still have joint legal custody (equal decision making power) but my son now lives with me. She gets about as much visitation as I had before and she was ordered to pay me child support. What did I learn from all this? (1) Patrick Sampair is a GREAT custody attorney. (2) Just because you can represent yourself, doesn’t mean you should represent yourself.

Weightier Matters Legal Referrals
I temporarily moved in with my sister to save money, so I rented out a storage room with Uhaul to my 1 bedroom apartment items, minus my bed and some clothes. I somehow was late on my monthly rental payment with Uhaul. In return, Uhaul auctioned off all my storage without any notice. I contacted Uhaul on numerous occasions and even went to their office requesting to speak with the store Manager and Regional VP to no avail. After sharing my situation, I was referred to Legal shield. After I enrolled, I was able to contact my local Law Firm the same day to submit my case. After speaking to a lawyer and submitting some documents to support my claim, within 30 days not only did I hear from the Uhaul Manager, but they agreed to settle with me out of court for my loss of goods. I received a settlement check for the items that they auctioned off and have been recommending Legal Shield ever since. It's a great service to have and I love it!- Sha'an J.

The Sampair Group
In August of 2012, I hired the Sampair Group to handle my divorce. It was a very traumatic time in my life, as I had been married 18 years. From the very first meeting, I felt that this group would not only handle my case, but would ease the difficulty of a very ugly situation. I was right. The Sampair Group negotiated with my ex's lawyer and was able to reach agreements without trial. Everyone in the office was friendly, courteous and professional. My case from start to finish was approximately 6 months, which in my case seemed like a short period of time to close out my divorce. There were children involved and my ex and I had a difficult time agreeing on anything. The Sampair Group took over and suddenly my divorce was complete. I would highly recommend contacting this Law Firm if you are ever in need of a divorce attorney.

I decided to go to the Sampair Group for my divorce because my mother used Pat Sampair for her divorce 10 years ago. My mother had only good things to say about Pat, she said he was accommodating to her schedule, was always their when she needed him, and was a strong assertive attorney. When I used Pat 10 years later the same held true. He met with me on Saturdays to accommodate my work schedule. When ever I needed to talk or email a question he was there to answer it for me. He was strong and knowledgeable when negotiating with my ex's attorney. Pat led the negotiating not my ex's attorney. I would not only recommend Pat to strangers on the internet. I would recommend Pat to family just like my mother did.

My ex husband like always being difficult said I wouldn't be able to move the kids to another state. Well Mr. Sampair helped with my case I was successfully able to move the child to another state and still be able to work a parenting plan with my ex husband. Patrick Sampair and his staff always kept me inform of everything that was going on with my case. Thanks Sampair Group for all your help.

Best Attorney ever, Im in the military and im currently over seas. I have a horrible depressing divorce action in AZ , I really needed an attorney that would be able to work with me by phone and not just rip me off because Im not in the state. Mr. Sampair has always comunicate with me over the phone or email his staff a;ways schedule me for telephonic appointments to prepare for court. He is the best attorney and I could truthfully recommend Patrick Sampair.

I highly recommend The Sampair Group for high conflict divorce and child custody. My case was noted by the judge "as one of the worst cases of parent alienation the courts had seen" and Patrick and his office achieved the child custody arrangements and divorce terms I had dreamed and hoped for. Patrick and the Sampair Group, Patrick was fair, facts based and did a great job at explaining financially what to expect and budget. Thank you for my children!

Relocation CasePatrick Sampair helped me relocated from Arizona to California. My husband was offered a new position in CA, Mr. Sampair was able to convince the Judge that it was in our child’s best interest to move to CA, But my former husband completely objected to the relocation. Relocation cases are very hard and almost impossible. With Mr. Sampairs knowledge and facts we were able to relocate.

I recommend The Sampair Group for family law. Going through a divorce is a very difficult time in my life and Mr. Sampair made me feel more at ease with this process. He has lots of experiences in divorce and was very helpful with his knowledge. Never having an attourney before this I am glad that I chose Mr. Sampair and would refer him to my friends and family.

Patrick is very professional and took on my monster of a case and won! Hes very aggressive (which I needed) in getting me custody of my kids and worked hard to help me the best he could. I like that hes brutally honest and didn't just tell me what I wanted to hear but told me the truth on my situation. I appreciate everything he has done for me and my kids!:0)
Tips & Advices
Each state has different mandates on how child support is determined. But there are some basic factors that underline how costs are determined in each state, including:
  • Income level of parent that needs to pay support (in the case of joint custody, the costs are determined by income of each party and the percentage of time the child spends with each parent)
  • Financial needs of child
  • Child’s standard of living before the divorce occurred
This is a divorce in which one party does not have to prove that the other’s actions lead to a deterioration of the marriage. The reason for divorce is listed as "irreconcilable differences" or an "irreparable breakdown of the marriage,” meaning the marriage was no longer working and could not be repaired.
Family law attorneys are helpful in cases where the two parties are not on amicable terms. The lawyers can act as intermediaries between the two parties and help them come to any settlement agreements, however long that may take. Lawyers can also help parties navigate tricky state laws regarding settlement agreements and child custody, thus expediting the process.
A contested divorce is one in which the parties cannot agree on either the necessity of the divorce as a whole, or how assets (money, property, etc.) and child custody should be split between them in the divorce. An uncontested divorce is when the parties are in agreement on how assets and child custody will be split between them. These divorces can sometimes be handled without hiring a lawyer.
It is possible for a couple to get a divorce without hiring a family law attorney. If the two parties are in agreement on how finances, child custody, properties, etc., will be split, then they can file the necessary court documents themselves and avoid the services of a lawyer.
