Arizona Family Law
Child Custody | Support:
When confronted with a divorce and child custody case in Arizona, life as you now know it will be changing. Degnan Law is here to help you to be fully prepared for those changes. As your guide through the legalities in this life-changing process, as divorce attorneys our job is to bring clear direction and counsel through the divorce and child custody proceedings.
Spousal maintenance, better known as “alimony” or “spousal support”, can be understood as court-ordered support paid by one spouse to the former spouse in the divorce or legal separation. The court determines the amount by taking into account a variety of finance and work-related issues pertaining to both parties.
Property | Asset Division:
When family law attorneys assist in dividing marital property in Arizona divorce or legal separation, this refers to both assets and debts. However, whether it be a large or small estate, it must be split when the marriage is dissolved. In Arizona, the marital estate – all property of any kind acquired during the marriage – is owned by the “community”, or the spouses.
In the unfortunate event that a former spouse fails to pay their spousal support obligation, remedies are available. When issues arise after a divorce, Degnan Law can offer advice and counsel to help you navigate post-judgment litigation. If an ex-spouse is refusing to pay the agreed upon or Court-ordered alimony, we can help you file an application with the Court seeking enforcement of the support obligation.
