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.

Divorce does not have to create a financial dilemma

Financial issues are a primary reason that some Arizona residents remain in an unhappy situation. They are often concerned about how much money they will have coming in, what their expenses will be and what their extended financial future looks like. Yet, with a little bit of planning and budgeting many of these concerns can be alleviated and the individual can take the necessary steps, such as divorce, to change his or her situation.

College expenses and divorce

College is expensive. Under ideal circumstances, Arizona parents have planned, saved and invested to be prepared for this expense. In addition, the child has studied and worked hard to earn a college acceptance letter. Yet, even when these things have happened, a divorce can alter the college financial picture.

Divorce in Arizona after 50 may come with financial consequences

Women who have relied on their husbands to make the financial decisions in their marriages may encounter problems should the marriage dissolve after many years. In Arizona and elsewhere, not only could gray divorce -- or divorce after the age of 50 -- mean a significant loss of income, it could also spell the need for some, mostly women, to learn to manage finances on their own. In fact, more than 55 percent of married women leave the financial aspects of their marriages to their husbands.

Dealing with debt is an important part of divorce proceedings

When an Arizona couple decides that the marriage is no longer viable, there are a number of things that must be considered. Typically, who will get the house and how will assets be divided are top of mind during the initial divorce negotiations. However, in addition to these important decisions, how debts will be handled needs to be addressed.

Discussing child support and the costs it can cover

Misinformation is an unfortunate part of life nowadays, and when it comes to the world of family law and divorce, there are plenty of ideas that have been pushed around that are either inaccurate or false. One of these ideas is the notion that child support payments can only be used in certain circumstances, or that the payments are limited in their scope. We are here to tell you that this is wrong. Child support payments can be used for many different financial costs.
