Military marriage isn’t easy. With lengthy separations, frequent relocations, and relatively low pay, it’s common for one or both spouses to feel isolated and as though they lack support from the other. Enlisted service members have a higher divorce rate than the national average for civilians with the highest rate for Air Force active-duty members at four percent followed by the Army and Marine Corps at 3.7% and Navy at 2.7%. Female troops have a higher divorce rate than male military members. Soaring rates of PTSD and increased instances of spousal abuse among active duty service members con ..read more

No couple walks down the aisle expecting it to end in divorce court, but life sometimes takes people in unanticipated directions. Fortunately, not all divorcing spouses have to litigate their divorce inside a courtroom. A divorce trial means an impartial judge who doesn’t personally know their situation makes all the final decisions for how the spouses live their post-divorce lives. Many spouses manage to put their hard feelings aside to draft their own divorce settlement agreement, understanding that negotiating the agreement between themselves out of court saves time, money, and contention ..read more

Fathers have rights in Arizona family court cases, including child custody cases and other family-related legal matters like child support obligations and visitation rights. But unlike mothers—for whom parentage is clear upon childbirth, fathers in Arizona court cases may not have presumptive parenting rights if they are not married to a child’s mother.  Courts in Arizona place a child’s best interests as their highest priority and don’t show partiality for either mothers or fathers in a court case. Instead, judges base their decisions on the premise that a close continued relationship wi ..read more

Ending a marriage is rarely an easy, distress-free process, but when divorcing spouses have significant assets, it may quickly become contentious and embittered. Arizona’s divorce process includes community property laws compelling both spouses to divide all property, assets, and debts acquired during the marriage equally and fairly. Unfortunately, during the animosity of divorce, some spouses hide assets from the court and from the other spouse in an effort to unfairly retain them rather than divide them. If you suspect your spouse is hiding assets, it’s important to speak to a knowledgeable ..read more

Facing a divorce with child custody as a factor can be an intimidating experience for parents. No parent looks forward to a judge deciding when they can spend time with their own children, but when parents separate or divorce, it breaks one household into two, making a decision for child custody and parenting time schedules a necessity. Similarly, unmarried parents may require a court’s intervention to define parental rights, determine child custody, and enforce child support obligations.  All Arizona family court decisions uphold a child’s best interests as the highest priority. If you’r ..read more

It’s never easy to go through a divorce, but when one or both parties are public figures or the divorce sparks public interest, it’s even more distressing.

Understanding Arizona’s Alimony Laws

Alimony is one of the most hotly contested issues in Arizona divorce, often far more so than the equitable distribution of marital assets and even child custody. Alimony—also called spousal support or spousal maintenance—tends to generate powerful emotions in a situation that may already be volatile. No matter what side of the issue a spouse is on, they are almost certain to have strong feelings on the subject ranging from, “I shouldn’t have to support him or her,” to “He owes everything to me and I’m only asking for what I deserve!” If you’re facing a divorce in Arizona, it’s important to und ..read more

Why is Asset Protection So Important in a Divorce?
Stewart Law Group Blog
by Legal Team
7M ago
Like many states, Arizona is a community property divorce state. In a community property state, divorcing spouses must equitably divide all marital property in a manner that’s fair if not strictly 50/50. The way the spouses or the judge divides the entirety of the couple’s property depends on when and how they acquired each asset and debt and whether or not they had a prenuptial agreement in place. Divorces are rarely friendly and amicable. More often, they are turbulent and hotly contentious. If you have assets of significant economic or sentimental value it’s important to protect them during ..read more
