In many cases, the first one to file and initiate the divorce has sought guidance of a divorce lawyer and, thus, sets the tone for the rest of the case. Both parties, however, should seek guidance of a lawyer to avoid legal traps instead of going forward with a divorce alone. With the help of a lawyer, filing for divorce in Arizona can be made easy because Arizona is a “no-fault”
Major elements that any divorcing couple with a divorce lawyer must come to agree upon include property division, child custody, and alimony. Because Arizona is a community property state, both parties will keep their possessions acquired before the marriage and any assets acquired during the marriage are shared to a certain extent by both parties. Custody of minor children is typically shared as joint custody with the agreement of both parents who must submit a parenting plan. Finally, an experienced Arizona family lawyer can assist a divorcing couple to calculate the amount of alimony, if any, that will be owed after divorce.
