If you have lived with your spouse for awhile and one or both partners want to end the marriage, many issues – legal and otherwise. Some of the most common issues that need to be addressed are:
Child Support– This is typically decided by the State of Arizona. Deviation from state guidelines is appropriate in some cases. Back child support & child support arrearages can be complex. For these type of cases it’s important to have an experienced divorce attorney to make sure the court receives accurate information, including proper calculations of deductions of gross income, to reach a decision that works for you.
Child Custody– We will negotiate and litigate all child custody matters in extreme detail so you don’t have to worry about future modifications. If you are going through a contested child custody case these require an experienced attorney to create a clear term approach and converted action.
Spousal Maintenance– This is often called alimony or spousal support in other states. If you are proceeding with a divorce in Phoenix Arizona and cannot agree in writing to spousal maintenance, then the court will award it. I will ensure that you understand the maintenance issues at hand, and work to get you a favorable outcome in court.
Property & Asset Division– Retirement benefits and other assets could be considered community property in the state of Arizona. This means that they may be divided between the parties at the time of divorce. These have a huge impact on your financial situation.
These are just a few of the many issues that need to be resolved when going through a divorce. If you intend to proceed or finalize your divorce, it’s advisable to seek aggressive, experienced & knowledgeable legal representation to help you with your case.
