    Date posted: January 25, 2017

    Many people mistakenly assume that holding a wedding ceremony where an officiant presides over the proceedings is sufficient to be legally married. Not so. If a marriage license is not issued in the state of Arizona, the marriage is not legally valid. That’s right – no license, no marriage. This means that if you and […]

    Date posted: January 5, 2017

    When you get divorced, not every piece of property is divided between the parties. Courts make a distinction between separate property and community property.
