    A growing number of marriages in Arizona are second or subsequent marriages, and these relationships often involve substantial property division issues, since both husband and wife have substantial assets and debts, and inheritance issues, due to the presence of stepchildren. Left unattended, these matters often lead to protracted and expensive litigation in family or probate […]

    Some Differences Between Fault And No-Fault Divorces

    Date posted: July 15, 2017

    In 1969, California Governor Ronald Reagan, who had promised to “put welfare bums to work” during the gubernatorial campaign, signed one of the nation’s first no-fault divorce laws. Although at the time, no-fault divorce was a very progressive concept, almost all other states quickly followed suit, and the divorce rate skyrocketed throughout the 1970s and […]

    The ABCs Of Mediation

    Date posted: July 10, 2017

    Prior to mediation, over 90 percent of divorce litigants believe that the procedure will be a complete waste of time because they reason that if they could have talked through their problems, they would not be involved in marriage dissolution litigation. Yet over 70 percent of the litigants who voluntarily enter mediation resolve all outstanding […]

    The Importance Of Temporary Hearings

    Date posted: July 5, 2017

    There is much wisdom in the old saying that “possession is nine-tenths of the law,” particularly in family law cases because most judges prefer to uphold the status quo, even if things are less than perfect. For example, in divorce child custody disputes, the parent who currently has custody nearly always retains that status, absent […]

    In Arizona and most other states, there is considerable debate as to the nature of spousal support.

    Few issues are more sensitive and potentially volatile in family law proceedings than matters impacting children.

    Guidelines For Marital Property Division In Divorce

    Date posted: June 12, 2017

    During any type of divorce proceeding, including where the couple involved is on amicable terms, conflicts can arise over the division of money, property, and debts.

    Enforcing Child Support Payments

    Date posted: June 9, 2017

    Parents have the legal duty to provide for their child. While you cannot force someone to be a part of your child’s life, you can get an order enforcing financial support. Whether you are divorced or a single parent, a child support order can ensure your child gets valuable benefits they may be entitled to, […]

    Date posted: April 25, 2017

    Determining child custody after the dissolution of your marriage or the end of your relationship may be a main source of dispute. When ex-spouses or ex-partners cannot come to a harmonious parenting agreement on their own or through mediation, an Arizona court will step in and make the determination for them. There are many factors […]
