Custody versus “Legal Decision-Making” for Arizona children

Following your divorce, you will no doubt give high priority to caring for your children, helping them adjust to the new circumstances and guiding them into the future. Child custody laws in Arizona have undergone a change in that the term “custody” is no longer used. There are now two parts: 1) Parenting time and 2) Legal Decision-Making Authority.

How parents can put together a parenting schedule after divorce

Parents in Arizona who get a divorce might also have to work out a parenting schedule. They should not treat this as an opportunity to get back at one another because they are angry about the divorce. The parenting schedule's purpose is for the child to be able to build a healthy relationship with both parents post-divorce.

Prenups for students

It is not unusual for young people in Arizona, or just about anywhere else, to decide to get married while still pursuing an undergraduate or graduate education. Because these couples are usually quite young and don't have a lot of assets, they may decide to forgo a prenuptial agreement. This can be a mistake.

Divorce can be difficult from a fiscal standpoint

Getting a divorce can be worthwhile for an Arizona spouse who's in a toxic or abusive relationship. It can also be a good decision for someone who's simply ready to move on with their life. However, money can play a role in determining when to actually go about ending a marriage. At a minimum, it can be difficult to make ends meet on half the money that used to be available to cover household expenses.

Divorce filings in Arizona surge in January

Family law attorneys in Arizona and around the country generally deal with a surge of new divorce filings in January. Spouses who wish to end their marriages begin to appear at attorney's offices on the first Monday after the holiday season has concluded, and the uptick in divorce petitions usually continues for several weeks. This is an annual phenomenon so predictable that many lawyers now refer to the first post-holiday Monday as "Divorce Day".
