The decision to divorce can be difficult to make; this is especially true when children are involved. The concerned Arizona parent wants to ensure that the children are properly taken care of financially and emotionally. How the divorce will affect the children is often a primary consideration in the overall decision to divorce and the child custody arrangements that will follow.
If you have legal decision-making authority when it comes to your children, it is likely because you made a valid case before the court that you can better provide for their best interests. The court may also have tried to provide a balance of parenting time for you and your ex, or the two of you may have reached a parenting plan that worked for both of you.
Preparing for a wedding or a divorce can both be emotional times. When emotions are running high, it is easy to make decisions that have not been fully thought out. In order to avoid problems caused by emotional decision-making, some Arizona residents find that working with a family law attorney to create a prenuptial agreement can assist them in working through important details prior to the wedding and then being prepared just in case things don't work out later on.
