Prenup can help business owners in event of divorce

Business ownership is considered a personal property right. Naturally, when business owners in Arizona get married, they may opt to share their personal property with their new spouses.

Divorce may affect golden year plans

Dissolving a marriage in Arizona generally has a huge impact on the majority of couples' retirement planning. In fact, the closer a couple is to retirement, the more drastically their plans may end up veering off course. A couple of tips may help those navigating divorce close to their golden years.

Credit accounts important to consider during divorce

Getting divorced in Arizona can be messy because this legal process involves untangling not just hearts but also finances. One of the biggest causes of conflict during divorce is property division. However, dealing with credit is also an important consideration during this type of family law proceeding.

Family home may be major source of conflict during divorce

Navigating the dissolution of a marriage in Arizona is one of the most difficult experiences anyone can go through, both emotionally and financially. In many divorce situations, the biggest area of concern and contention is the family home, especially if the two divorcing spouses have children together. After all, in many families, the marital home is the largest asset.

Exchanging information necessary during divorce proceeding

Divorce sometimes cannot be avoided if the two spouses simply cannot reconcile their differences. However, figuring out how to navigate this type of legal proceeding in Arizona can be overwhelming. An important first step to remember when starting out is to file the necessary initial court papers. Typically, one spouse files a petition for divorce, and the other one files a formal answer.

Uncontested divorce has its benefits

In some marital split-ups in Arizona, the spouses simply cannot agree on the major issues they are facing, ranging from the division of assets to child custody, child support and spousal support. However, in other divorce cases, the two spouses agree to get divorced and also agree on these types of major issues. In these situations, filing for uncontested divorces may be a beneficial move.

Divorce does not have to ruin financial situation

The process of getting divorced is understandably an emotional one, but it is also a major financial process.

Being prepared critical when embarking on divorce process

This is true whether the division of assets involves just a few items or many. It is especially true if the divorce also involves minor-aged children of the parties. 

Legal separation has similarities to divorce proceeding

When two spouses in Arizona are having trouble getting along, they may naturally look for the best immediate solution. In some cases, the spouses go straight to getting a divorce, whereas in other cases, separation is a viable option. A legal separation is not as common but may be helpful when the spouses wish to work through those financial or personal issues that are impacting their marriage.
