Family house may be source of contention in divorce

Experiencing a marital breakup in Arizona can no doubt be emotionally challenging. However, it can also be financially difficult when a marital home is involved, as the two individuals getting divorced might not be in agreement with how to handle it. Here are two options for tackling the family's home when going through divorce.

Navigating divorce in the age of social media

Social media is an easy, popular way to stay in touch with others, meet new people, post pictures and much more. For many people, Facebook and other platforms are an important part of their social lives, which can add an extra layer of complication during divorce. For people who have significant portions of their lives online, it can be emotionally and technically challenging to divorce on social media as well.

Divorce and the holiday season

The holiday season is upon us. While many Arizona families are looking forward to spending quality family time and enjoying each other's company, others are dreading the thought of getting through this season in the midst of a divorce. For these families, the holidays have forever changed, and they are now faced with creating new paths and traditions.

A mediated divorce can benefit the entire family

Divorce is thought to be on the decline in Arizona and the rest of the country. There is something fairly new in the divorce landscape that is catching on especially when there are children involved. Mediated divorce is thought to be a less contentious approach and can be particularly helpful to setting up joint parenting arrangements.

Divorce and its impact on the individual's business

After years spent working and building a business, the Arizona entrepreneur typically wants to do everything possible to make the business thrive. Countless hours and money are often involved in such an endeavor. Yet, all of this hard work can be in vain if the business becomes part of the entrepreneur's divorce battleground.

Divorce and retirement accounts

Financial concerns are often top of mind when an Arizona couple decides to end their marriage. How will property be divided, who will receive what financial assets and who will be responsible for which bills are important factors. The answer to these questions can have a significant impact upon the individual for years to come following the divorce.

New law outlines who gets embryos after divorce

A new Arizona law will change how divorcing couples handle their frozen embryos. In the past, rulings regarding their use after divorce have varied, leaving couples without any meaningful precedents to follow. Now, parents who wish to have children using their embryos will be able to keep them regardless of their soon-to-be ex's wishes. 

Seeking guidance on what to expect during divorce in Arizona

Many couples in Arizona and elsewhere may enter a marriage with the intent of remaining together throughout life. As studies suggest that as many as 50 percent of marriages result in divorce, this might not always be the outcome. Since dissolving a marriage is a major decision that could impact one's future, a person could benefit from taking the time to consider certain crucial topics before choosing a path.

Understanding how discovery works in a divorce

While every divorce is as different as every couple going through them, there are some elements that are common to many, depending on the process of divorce a couple chooses. Among the first steps the spouses should take when considering a divorce is seeking the legal guidance of an attorney who is experienced in the nuances of Arizona family law. Each party will need a separate attorney. Once the divorce petition has been filed with the appropriate courts, the opposing sides will begin the discovery phase.

Child support and divorce

When an Arizona couple decides that it is time to end their marriage, there are a number of financial issues that need to be taken into consideration. Child support is often a concern when the couple decides to divorce. How much the individual will receive or will owe can affect a number of other decisions that the individual will need to make.
