Planning for positive summer co-parenting

Divorcing parents in Maricopa County often have a challenging time adapting to a new co-parenting relationship. As children move back and forth between parents' homes, some of the changes and disruption can be mitigated by the continuity of their educational schedules. When the summer months come around, co-parenting can require new adjustments so that children continue to enjoy a relaxed, fun summer without unnecessary tension between their parents.

Social Security options after a marriage ends

When married couples in Arizona split up, Social Security benefits will not necessarily be immediately impacted. If an individual who is at least 62 years old was married for 10 years or more, they may be able to collect benefits on an ex's record as long as they are also unmarried. Their ex must also be entitled to benefits, and those benefits must be more than what they would be entitled to receive.

The credit perils of a quick divorce property settlement

Divorcing couples in Arizona and around the country often make difficult choices, and some of these decisions can influence their lives for years to come. It is not uncommon for divorcing spouses to make concessions during property division negotiations to reach a settlement quickly and put the whole process behind them, but making important decisions without considering all of the financial ramifications can leave spouses open to harassment from bill collectors and with credit damage that can take years to rectify.

Maintaining healthy relationships with the kids after divorce

As many Arizona residents may already know, divorce can take a heavy toll on a family. Not only does it emotionally stress both spouses, but it can also be very strenuous for the children who have to watch their family being torn apart. This effect might be amplified if one parent wins sole custody of the children, meaning that the other parent won't get to see their kids as often as they used to.

Deciding what happens to a business in a divorce

Married entrepreneurs in Maricopa County should take steps to keep their business finances separate from their marital and personal expenses. Otherwise, business assets may not be considered separate property in a divorce. A prenuptial agreement offers one of the best ways to determine what is and isn't marital property for a couple.

Pitfalls in Your Family Court Case

Family court cases present multiple issues, such as legal decision-making for a child, parenting time, child support, spousal maintenance, and property or debt division. Each of these issues, in turn, is complex. So it is not unusual for parties to get disorganized, confused, or overwhelmed by the minutiae of divorce filings. Without support and helpful resources, people can misstep.

What happens if I want a divorce but my spouse doesn't?

If you are ready to end your marriage but your spouse isn't, you can be understandably concerned about whether he or she will be able to prevent you from getting a divorce. In the end, a reluctant spouse can probably delay a divorce, but rarely succeeds in stopping it.
